Each one of us at Highsnobiety has a unique workspace reflective of our work habits and style. Take Fritz‘s desk for instance. Never in my life have I seen that small of a space occupied by such a staggering amount of magazines, pencil shavings and sketches. I honestly can’t remember the last time I saw his desk nor do I remember what color it is. I want to say white but it could just as easily be black.

To put my mind at ease, I took it upon myself to search for the mysterious platform holding everything up and in the process discovered a variety of magazines I had until then only thumbed through. I still don’t know what color his desk is but now I can at least recommend 10 magazines worth picking up for the month of April. Check out all 10 from around the world below.

New Zealand’s The New Order is a biannual publication focused on the most influential people in fashion, art, culture and lifestyle. The most recent issue features an in-depth interview with visvim founder Hiroki Nakamura. A dozen other photo editorials from brands like COMME des GARCONS HOMME Plus, Pigalle and Saint Laurent are included as well, making this one a no-brainer.

In the process of celebrating their 10th anniversary, Believer prides themselves on being a magazine with no set rules to adhere by. Book reviews are often untimely and very long, while interviews are about the same. The focus is without a doubt around books and writers but the editors are given maximum freedom around these topics.

Japan’s POPEYE is a regular around these parts for their exclusive editorials featuring streetwear brands like Supreme. POPEYE brands itself as a “Magazine for City Boys” and that’s exactly what it is.
