Someone asked me last week if there are any magazines worth reading at the moment. I was momentarily stumped. I don’t read any Australian magazines regularly – for lots of reasons – but I subscribe for a stupidly expensive amount of money to So-En, a Japanese monthly that is full of things I wish I could either make, own or wear. I pore over my monthly issue for days, skimming over the kanji I don’t know to make garbled sense of the words, but mostly just devouring the pics. Musubi is one of my favourite contributors. For thirteen years she was the creative director and buyer for an interiors shop before going freelance as a creator. She’s an art director-slash-stylist who can’t get enough of flowers – which suits me perfectly, since I can’t get enough of them either.
(Musubi is Japanese, after all – you knew there had to be an obligatory cute shot of a designer dog.)
(And this one reminds me of those creepy Anne Geddes baby photos… but I still like it.)
So-En is available at Kanga Kanga! Exciting times, people. Well, for me.
