Whenever I get bored and uninspired I turn to Encens, my so-called fashion bible. I have been collecting Encens for quite some time now. I have first discovered it at one of those Mom and Pop stores in the West Portal area in San Francisco. And since then everytime I travel to Europe I make sure to track down an issue or two. It's one of those rare, dead stock magazines only available at specialty magazine stores. And because of this it makes even more appealing to me. Its mind-blowing images never fail to stimulate my mind. It's a continuing source of inspiration for both me and my Mom.
Here's a few snaps of my ginormous (it literally weighs like 2 or 3 pounds!) Back to Japan issue which I got in Berlin last summer...Enjoy!
