There are many ways one can celebrate 25 years: you can start with an intimate dinner for friends, elevate to a star studded fashion party at the New York Public Library (with Liza Minelli, Kanye West, and Queen Latifah thrown in for good measure) and then cool down with a special, limited edition product launch. That's the exact agenda Paper Magazine opted for this month as they heralded 25 years as a New York based, independently magazine. In that time they've featured everyone from rapper Afrika Bambaataa to designer Zac Posen in its pages and thrown a host of legendary parties. In homage to a quarter century of indie-chic, they've partnered with LeSportsac to design a collectors edition bag which features a trompe l'oeil image of the magazine spilling out of a front pocket. The trick of the eye becomes a reality for anyone who buys this bag, which comes with a free one year subscription to the actual magazine. Log on to Lesportsac to purchase yours for $58.
