6 Under-The-Radar Magazines You Really Need To Check Out
Sure, the big-name mags (
Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Elle) get the big-name cover stars, but it’s the lesser known publications that tend to feature the youngest, coolest, and most off-the-beaten-path creatives in their pages.
We’ve rounded up a few of our favorite titles below – some newer, some older, some on which the ink has barely dried – and given you a bit of background info on why we think you should love them too.
Who knows, maybe you’ll find your new favorite glossy?
On the cover: Anne Sophie Monrad
Why you should pick up a copy: This is the Little Princess issue! Need we say more? The large format of this bi-annual fashion and jewelry journal means even more of their whimsical, girly photography to enjoy.
On The Cover: PJ Harvey
Why you should pick up a copy: Cintra Wilson (former New York Times columnist and all-around awesome critic) interviewed FIT's Valerie Steele for the second issue, which also features a look into photographer Deborah Turbeville's apartment, an essay on whether rebellion is still possible in fashion, and PJ Harvey in Ann Demeulemeester. Basically, if this magazine were a world, we would want to live in it.
On the cover: Anais Pouliot
Why you should pick up a copy: This issue features two of our favorite models, Canadian Pouliot and Tunisian Hanaa Ben Abdesslem, as well as insider-y interviews with the likes of Fabien Baron and Gaia Repossi. Like most cool things, the mag hails from Sweden (the text is in English though!)
On the cover: Michelle Williams
Why you should pick up a copy: This bi-annual, Vancouver-based publication covers a wide range of subjects, from fashion to film to environmental issues. The latest (and, perhaps, greatest) issue includes a lengthy interview with the "My Week With Marilyn" star, a poetry insert, and a spread by dreamy photographer Lina Scheynius.
On the cover: Mirthe Visser
Why you should pick up a copy: Billed as "Fashion, Swimwear, and Jetset Hedonism", this weighty tome of a title is an image-heavy exercise in pure escapist fun.
On the cover: Natalia Chabanenko
Why you should pick up a copy: This Aussie title's past covers have included "Kim Kardashian as a Barbie" and "Brooke Shields: Cougar" so you know they have a sense of humor. It also has an impressive array of high-impact, high-gloss fashion spreads.
