ACCLAIM Magazine Issue #20
ACCLAIM Magazine’s new issue has just hit shelves. The issue is dedicated to Japan, and is a progression for the publication and a captivating taste of things to come from Australia’s premier street lifestyle title, which has undergone a fresh design shake-up in line with its new themed issues. Guest-edited by Pete Le Chic of progressive label For The Homies, the Japan issue goes straight to the source, with one-on-one interviews with some of the biggest movers and shakers of the current creative culture scene, some of whom have never given Western interviews before.
The cover sets off the stand-out issue with an image shot for ACCLAIM by iconic Japanese photographer, Yasuma “YONE” Yonehara. This is continued inside with an exclusive 12-page shoot by YONE, featuring his signature Japanese female models in a selection of For The Homies garments.
A limited edition poster from the shoot will be available exclusively to subscribers and readers who purchase the issue at one of ACCLAIM’s upcoming launch parties held in Melbourne, Sydney, and Singapore. Magazines purchased at the launches will also come in a unique ACCLAIM and For The Homies co-branded tote bag created specially for the issue. These are limited to 150 pieces worldwide.
