Jill Stuart Mook

Jill Stuart has published a so-called "mook" (short for magazine book) that retails for 1260yen and comes with a round compact mirror. Here's a link to a pic of the mirror. The mook features the latest JS clothes, bags, watches, shoes, makeup and skincare for Autumn/Winter along with the current ad campaign featuring Lindsay Lohan. The cover girl is popular Japanese model Rinka, who is also the Aube spokesmodel. It can also be ordered on Amazon Japan. Other designer brands that have published similar mooks that are usually accompanied by a novelty item are Tsumori Chisato and Cath Kidston.

Kinokuniya in Ngee Ann City (Singapore) had about 4 copies yesterday, selling for about S$28 which is a bit pricey especially if you only want the mirror. The mirror has a plastic cover that swivels outwards and is studded with one cheap-looking crystal above the JS logo. It is definitely not as well made as the limited edition round compact mirror that was heavily studded with crystals that JS had released earlier this year but if you like collecting JS novelty items, then you may want to hunt this down before Kinokuniya sells out. Kinokuniya has the mirror on display in a plastic box near the Japanese comics section.
