We’re truly excited to announced our Japanese language online magazine, UpscaleHype Japan! When it comes to fashion, Japan has been a key part of shaping our world. From street-wear to high-end, there’s no question that Japan has left a lasting mark. So it only made sense that we created a version of our site that caters to our Japanese audience with the purpose of getting a more in-depth look at how Japanese celebrity culture influences the fashion world and vice versa. UpscaleHype Japan will be led by our Tokyo based editor Yukee Abbé, and it will primarily cover Japanese celebrities such as musicians, athletes, and actors, as well as Korean and American celebs. So, if you speak Japanese or know someone who does, head over to Also, you can help support our launch by liking UpscaleHype Japan on Facebook here, and following @UpscaleHypeJP on Twitter and Instagram. Thanks!
