Swak x Jill by Jill Stuart

Just got tipped off by Yumeko, who writes the awesome BittenBefore blog that there is a new Japanese magazine out called Swak (for "Sealed With A Kiss") that comes with a Jill by Jill Stuart tote bag. This is the inaugural issue and features popular model Rinka, former spokesmodel for Aube, on the cover. It is now available at Kinokuniya in Ngee Ann City for S$15.50! Just picked up my copy today at noon. There were about 20 copies and it's placed in the section with other mooks from Topshop, Cher, Paul & Joe, Bape.

The magazine is also available on Amazon Japan for 680yen (not including shipping).



Kinokuniya has also brought in the new Cath Kidston Mook which comes with a floral print tote bag! But this is more pricey at S$31 as the Japanese retail price is higher at 1365yen compared to 680yen for the Swak mag. The bag is made of cloth, whereas the Swak bag is made of canvas. Kino has the bags on display in a glass cabinet near the Japanese comics section.
