SPUR (シュプール, Shupūru) is a monthly fashion magazine for women, published by Shueisha since 1989. Since 2011, SPUR magazine has made several collaborations and interviews with Hirohiko Araki.


SPUR was first published in 1989. Since its inception, SPUR was classified as a fashion magazine with a strong emphasis on prestigious European brands, with detailed information for European collections in each season and the latest trends.

The typical SPUR issue will address topics such as fashion, fashion accessories beauty, culture, and weddings. A quarter of the pages are dedicated to a tie-up with a specific sponsor. The number of pages varies from 240 to 500 pages depending on the issue. Every year, in the March and September issues, a separate appendix is sold with the magazine to introduce new products. Special issues named "SPUR PINK" and "SPUR white" are also released on an irregular basis.
