I’m very excited that BON’s Spring/Summer 2009 issue is finally out! BON is one of my favourite high-fashion magazines. It’s based out of Sweden and is published bi-annually (Fall/Winter & Spring/Summer) and to me, it stands out against some of the other fashion mags on the shelf. Ever since Johan Avedal took over as the new art director for BON, I’ve been thoroughly impressed. He changed the logo and changed the whole look of the magazine. Every single page is beautifully designed and you can tell that the folks over at BON have an amazing eye for detail. They even use different paper stocks, from super-glossy to matte paper for the index in the back. And it smells amazing, that crisp new-magazine smell. If you are lucky enough to find an issue, pick it up! Not bad for ten bucks.
Even more exciting, Lou Doillon (her mother is Jane Birkin, her sister is Charlotte Gainsbourg, her step-father is Serge Gainsbourg) is a new contributor to BON magazine. Her illustrations are quite lovely.
