Vogue Hommes Japan Spring Summer 2010

  • Pin it

I know I asked this before: but why should men buy a magazine targeting them and in the same time looking like this? Vogue Hommes Japan recently premiered the cover of their upcoming Spring Summer 2010 issue.

And it looks like they have Jesus on the cover! And again, I ask: what dogmatic machismo inferno must push a man to actually read this magazine? Which was meant for him? (forget that, hit the jump to see what women magazines covers would look like if they were written by men. At least let’s have some fun while we’re at it!) (photos via 1, 2)

None of those covers works for me. Thank you. Last week I bought the Dutch ELLE with Dutch model Bregje Heinen on the cover(s). There are actually two covers. One Bregje in white Chanel, the other Bregje in black Viktor&Rolf. Perfect covers which cought my eye because of their “simpleness” (if that’s an English word?) And it’s the special thick Spring/Summer issue and it’s really great: I feel desire for new clothes! Also inside it’s all what a fashion magazine should look like. Take a peek here Mrs. Wintour this is a fashion bible! Pfff…..packed in a plastic cover with a special smaller glossy with the new S/S trends included. Yummy, yummy……!! :)

What do you people here think? I would love to know that?

This is way funny! :D The male inspired women’s magazines look like they were done by MAD magazine. :)
As for the Japanese men’s Vogue I have no idea who it is for.

Adriana I scoped the link you sent and yes both covers of the Dutch Elle are lovely. I like them. :)

Ellington, much nicer and prettier than all “the noise” above right? More stylish too in my “humble” opinion.

Sorry didn’t got the joke.


Though I think it’s very realistic……well done! :D

simpleness – simplicity

As the the Japan Vogue cover – at first glance I thought it was a female model. The men who choose to buy this mag are fashion-loving people of course. The mag would cease to exist if it didn’t have a readership.
