buy a bag, get a free magazine.

The November Issue of 25 Ans with a Christian Louboutin Goodie Bag
You know I like magazines but Japanese magazines just school the west when it comes to lux-ness of their pages and their free gifts from designer collaborations. 25 Ans is an upscale magazine for women (I’m going to assume that 25 ans stands for 25 years in French) produced by Hachette Fujingaho. The publisher’s other titles include Men’s Club and Elle in Japan. You can definitely see the French influence with the various ads and spreads devoted to LV, Chanel and Louboutin. Since my Japanese skills are far from capable of reading anything except for prices and shop info, I pretty much buy magazines according to the free gift. This satin bag is awesome and fits a pair of Lou’s perfectly…so you won’t be surprised to know I shelled out another ¥980 (roughly $10 CAD) for a second bag.
I snapped some shots of a few of my favourite pages for your visual pleasure. Enjoy.
And it’s not just for girls! Men’s magazines also come with a free gift with purchase. Check out this Stussy magalogue which includes a decent sized tote for those confident enough to rock a man-bag (here’s hoping my brother will since it’s currently en route to him via Japan Post now).
