Under The Influence is a French-based tome that, although only five issues old, is already proving to be an alternative to the many titles populating the European magazine landscape. Like many French titles Under The Influence celebrates fine fashion, photography and art - yet it is also a magazine that appears to think deeply about life, in an Olivier Zahm/Purple way. This text from their website, about marriage, is a case in point "Marriage is no longer proof of your wealth and success and procreation no longer the only option; reproduction not as half of a partnership but alone as a whole in one’s own image-egotism or true human nature: can we really separate the two?" Issue 5 of Under The Influence is on sale at Mag Nation now.
