GQ Japan

I love the cover image of this month’s issue of GQ Japan (the magazine’s official site has a much larger version). It features Murakami Takashi, and the lovely Sato Eriko (star of the new CUTIE HONEY film) dressed has one of his creations. The inside features a stunning pictorial of her appearing as quite a few of Murakami’s sexy figures. It’s amazing to think that she actually approaches the out-of-this-world measurements of the infamous Miss Ko2. You can see a few of the pics from the pictorial here, and a few pics of the launch event for the issue here.

For those interested, GQ Japan is designed by the Cap collective (pics from their recent GGG exhibit here). Our man in Gothenburg, Jesper, tells me that he’s in touch with a person from Cap regarding the TSiG event. This excites me to no end.

Update (16/08/21): The cover image is unfortunately no longer available.

Smart Max

Yesterday I picked up this month’s issue of SMART MAX (not the issue pictured above, with Sakomoto Ryuichi and Oyamada Keigo on the cover, but rather the June issue with Kiriya Kazuaki on the cover), and adult men’s street magazine, as it features a special Bonjour Essentials CD. Compiled by Bonjour Records (the great Daikanyama record shop), it features tracks by Capri Kids, Superpitcher, Captain Comatose, Black Strobe, Tiefschwarz, Cosmetique, Benji Cossa, Position Normal, and Cat Power. Haven’t listened to it yet (I’m in the process of ripping it, to then transfer on my iPod), but sounds like it’ll make for a good going-to-work soundtrack.
