The debut issue of Japanese fashion & lifestyle publication HUGE presents an amazing look at what the high end Japanese menswear enthusiast was interested in in 2003. With a great mix of high fashion, street culture, entertainment, and more, Huge really lived up to its tagline "Hi-End style magazine.".
Actor Ryuhei Matsuda is on the double cover, once in an illustrated form, created by Hiro Sugiyama, and then in a photograph of the same image right behind the translucent main cover.
The issue features a number of editorial shoots, including Undercover, insight into some of the best Los Angeles-stores at the time, a closer look at the Neighborhood collection, sneakers, and much more.
Another mag for real collectors of Japanese style history, adding to the growing number of first issues we have had on Vanitasism.
Condition: The magazine is in great condition. Only very basic signs of usage.
