I really enjoy magazines. A couple of months ago I did a review; it was actually more me gushing about how much I love Frankie Magazine. In that post I also mentioned there would be a follow up review on my other favourite magazine – YEN.
YEN and Frankie are very similar; both are aimed at the more fashion conscious, crafty and creative of the social spectrum. In my opinion Yen is possibly more art and fashion focused which really appeals to me. Each issue has an artist and photographer of the month which I thoroughly enjoy; it’s so nice to see a wide variety of artist opinions and styles. YEN is also really likeable in the way it does still have some of those familiarities you expect from a magazine. The usual spreads on what’s on trend and a selection of pieces that demonstrate that look. Which is something that Frankie sometimes lacks. Obviously I am in to fashion and I personally feel it’s something that YEN does better than Frankie?
Over all this is a really beautiful magazine, if you enjoy Frankie then you will most probably enjoy this too. YEN is almost like the little sister to follow up Frankie that I always reach for because two months wait for your favourite magazine is too long! This way I manage to get one per month.
