This year marks the 80th anniversary of “Hanatsubaki,” Shiseido’s corporate culture magazine. Since first commencing with publishing in 1937, Hanatsubaki has continuously presented a rich array of information – spanning from beauty, fashion, art, literature, as well as the information on state-of-the-art science – with the health and beauty of the Japanese woman in mind.
Across the span of its eighty-year history, Shiseido has released an astounding 817 issues of Hanatsubaki; for this exhibition, we have painstakingly selected a collection of memorable magazine covers to display for spectators. Take this chance to come face-to-face with the magazine’s various covers, and let their designs take you on a journey across time.
Hanatsubaki’s 2017 winter issue, commemorating its 80th anniversary and centering around the theme of “Art de Vivre (Art of Living)” will be distributed to guests at the exhibition venue – free of charge.
