Cath Kidston & Hello Kitty Mooks

Yet another brand mook is being released: the fall/winter '09 edition of Cath Kidston will be released on 15 September in Japan. It will retail for 1500yen and has 56 pages. It comes with a large tote bag and pouch in blue rose print. Want this too!



To commemorate the 35th anniversary of Hello Kitty, two mooks will be released on 20 October, one with a gold logo tote and another with a black ribbon bag. The contents are the same for the two 52-page mooks which will retail for 1200yen each.

Hmmm...which one you think is more popular?

Hi,
I think the gold logo tote is easier for most people to use as the black purse may be a bit too cutesy for more mature people.

Just saw a Crystal Ball Mook with a tote bag on Sunday when I was down at Kino main store. I'm deciding whether I should buy this or wait for the one from Cath Kitson.

Hi,

You can buy Cath Kidston stuff on www.asos.ccom which is based in the UK and ships internationally.

A 'mook' is a Japanese term for 'magazine book'.

I'm afraid there's no info about the material of the Cath Kidston bag at the moment.

Oh, so you get "free" items along with buying the magazine? I guess they are larger/longer/more extensive and detailed than magazines in the US?

Oh, so are mooks are longer/larger/more detailed/extensive than magazines in the US? And more expensive, since they sometimes come with "free" items (bags, purses)?

Hi,

The mooks are usually magazine sized and are put out by various fashion brands to publicise their latest collections. They usually come with an item from that brand like a tote bag or accessory. The prices can range from 1000+yen (about US$10) to more for those with better quality items.
