Cath Kidston Mook

I picked up the new Cath Kidston mook (S$34.10) at Kinokuniya (Ngee Ann City) this evening. The mega-tote bag (36x46.5x20cm) and matching zip pouch are made of a polyester and PVC blend. Both feel quite sturdy and well-made. The tote bag is almost the same size as the Marc by Marc Jacobs tote.



The tote bag can be folded up and kept inside the zip pouch, which makes it ideal for travels. The mook is pricey, costing a few dollars more than the Marc by Marc Jacobs mook but I still find it worthwhile as Cath Kidston is not retailed in Singapore. Plus I liked the polka dot and rose print, which is one of the very first Cath Kidston prints dating back to the founding of the brand.



The interior of the bag is plain with no pockets, just a tab button to hold the top of the bag together.



Some pages from the accompanying magazine. There are currently four Cath Kidston standalone stores in Japan, two in Tokyo (Daikanyama and Marunouchi), and one each in Nagoya and Osaka.





The Jill Stuart 5th Anniversary (with the vanity pouch & mirror) and Uniqlo mooks are also in stock so if you want those, I wouldn't wait too long.

I have the carry out bag with the same print bought from UK. I'm so tempted to buy this. Not sure if I should since it's the same print..

Thanks, Iris, for featuring this article. I love the floral print and has managaed to get a copy of this mook. Love the bag and thumbs up for the quality.Wasnt expecting something of such good quality! I was expecting something more flimsy.Nevertheless...for Cath Kidston fans, Fiejapan at Bugis is selling some of the range. However, expect a higher price mark up i suppose.
