The year 2016 makes it the 150th anniversary since Japan and Italy established a diplomatic relationship.
With this in mind, 3 ELLE Japan magazines: ELLE, ELLE DECOR and ELLE A TABLE are commemorating the occasion, covering a total of 160 pages on Italy!
In October, ELLE DECOR ran a feature entitled “Can’t help being obsessed about Italian Design!”, followed by the November issue of ELLE Japan who published a spread called “Crazy about Italy.”
This particular feature included reports from Milan, Florence, Rome and Venice and included a coveted restaurant guidebook for these Italian hotspots.
Last but not least, ELLE A TABLE published “Tastes shared by Japan and Italy” in its November issue, complete with Italian recipes.
The grand finale of this celebration came in the form of an event entitled ELLE Loves Italy, held at the Italian Embassy in Japan for 250 specially invited guests.
