Thursday for Thought : BUST Magazine.

by kranARI

I’ve made some new discoveries this week that I’d like to share with you. I was excited to literally stumble upon a new magazine here in London that comes all the way from our beloved NYC. While giving myself the chance to explore some new, fun reading material, I also discovered what usually attracts me to a new mag. The answer is usually simple and obvious – the Cover. But for me I guess, it’s not specifically the cover story that captures my interest, but the person featured.

Sofia Coppola was on the cover of BUST magazine, I know, weird title for a mag, as your mind could go in a naughty direction straight away (maybe that’s what they were going for). Anywhoo, I saw Sofia on the cover and as I hugely admire her work and find her background quite intriguing, I though eh, what the heck, I’m going to pick up this issue and see how it goes.

Well it turns out both Sofia and BUST were quite intriguing!

Just a few words on BUST for those of you who might be wondering about it in more detail. Seems to me, on first glance that BUST is a kind of indie styled mag that caters for girls mainly between the ages of 12 to 30. It promotes craft making and sewing communities and also features lots of ads for online indie jewellery designers and cool household items. What impressed me was the used of plus size models for their designated photo shoot at the end of the mag and of course their super innovative idea of including a Belinda Carlisle quiz and a Mad Men-lovers crossword puzzle for its readers.

Even though I can pretty much picture the girls that would buy BUST – here in London it would probably be your typical East Ender/Shoreditch frequeter that would sport 20s clothing and frequent in vintage shops – it seems to me like this mag promotes a healthy lifestyle, role models and intellectual material fit for any woman. What a breath of fresh air! Where were you when I was 15?
