Mooks/Mags Haul

My copies of InRed,Steady, the Gelato Pique mook arrived today courtesy of a friend in Japan. I also picked up the new Rebecca Taylor 2009 Fall/Winter mook (S$31.40) from Kinokuniya (Ngee Ann City).


This is the first ever Gelato Pique mook and I'm happy to say that it does not disappoint. The soft cotton tote bag has a cute deer/rabbit/squirrel print and is roomy enough to fit the mook itself. There is also a flap pocket inside.



The scrunchie (made of polyester) is not as fluffy and thick as the one that came with a recent issue of Spring magazine but it feels incredibly soft.


I was also very happy with the Rebecca Taylor mook. The grey leopard print tote bag is slightly larger than the Gelato Pique tote. It is made of felt material, which makes for a nice change from the usual cloth or polyesther totes. The interior is lined with pink polyester and has no pockets.



Like the last Rebecca Taylor mook, the bag comes with a pink plastic cat charm with pink and silver glitter. There were less than 10 copies of this mook at Kino, probably because Rebecca Taylor is not very well-known in Singapore (although Tangs Orchard carries a small selection of its clothes at its Tang+Co section).



The Agnes B. lunch tote bag is really tiny! Granted it can fit a lunch box, but I really don't see myself using this often as it's just too small. It is cute but I wouldn't queue up for two hours just to buy it. There are a few bags with the same print currently at the Agnes B. stores in Singapore.



The Marc Jacobs Daisy zip pouches and steel bangles that came with InRed are probably the best freebie I've ever seen from InRed, which is a magazine targeted at ladies in their 30s. The pouches are made of polyester and have a nice solid shape, unlike some of the more flimsy pouches that are given away with Japanese mags. Daisy also happens to be one of my favourite fragrances :-)

Hi Ur,
Marc Jacobs is coming up with a mook that will include a pouch, hand towel and mirror on 25 February, I think.
