Zipper June 2014 Kyary Pamyu Pamyu Issue | Japanese fashion magazine
I bought this issue of Zipper recently for Japanese reading practise, and thought I'd share a few snaps of what the magazine is like with you guys. Personally I can't wait to be able to get my hands on Japanese fashion magazines when I do my year abroad, the content just seems far more interesting than the ones we get in England! Company magazine is my favourite but I find the fashion, in depth beauty tutorials and layouts of Japanese fashion magazines far more appealing than anything available in the UK. Zipper especially has a real 'blog' feel to it, with the tutorials, how to wear an item in different ways and focus on many different personal styles rather than focusing on atypical trends.
I totally recommend buying some Japanese fashion magazines if you are into Japanese street fashion, even if you can't read Japanese you still get a ton of style and beauty inspiration! I think I'm going to translate Kyary Pamyu Pamyu's interview for practise for sure, genuinely want to know what they spoke to her about! Next I want to get my hands on an issue of Popteen magazine. If anyone is curious as to where to buy Japanese fashion magazines I bought this issue off YesAsia, but you can also buy them from the Japan Centre website too. What's your favourite magazine to buy? Have any recommendations for me? xx
