    Sure, but there's a 50/50 chance I'll just hook the Thinkpad strap onto it ::meev::
    Cautiously boarding the hype train here but we'll see what the final price clocks in at.

    Probably ¥38,000 for it in leather. I like tham hardware on the strap but the fabric just looks like a seatbelt.

    I wonder what kind of leather they will use, the quality can vary wildly.

    That strap is a Mana modification, lol! No word that Moitié is going to incorporate it with their bag. He may have done that if the original strap wasn't long enough. I didn't try the bag on myself (I should have) so I don't know how long the original strap is. It is adjustable.

    I'm hoping the price will be a little less than the leather bat bag since this bag is a simpler design.

    Yep, M m M posted that those wearing their items ( be it accessories or main items) will be able to receive a free gift on the night. Please note ,though, that this will only be for the first 100 M m M wearers as it is limited.

    KAMIJO tweeted that over 600 people applied for the Masquerade event. Moitié has announced that due to high demand no more tickets will be issued but there may be some available that day. Anyone who wants to find out more should check KAMIJO's social media since Moitié won't have information about additional tickets.

    I wonder if they will start having him model for them. He did before when Mana was the owner.

    Randomly flipping through the Moitie listings: I just noticed that Mana actually now has one of his ex-alumni designing for him:
    https://www.wunderwelt.jp/en/fleur/products/a-00114
    "Design by Alice KobayashiⓇFairy wish"
    Internet says that lady is a former Moitie employee and/or co-founding designer?

    http://visualfashionjp.blogspot.com/2010/05/mana-moi-meme-moitie.html (I encourage everyone to drink in this glorious web design)

    I also notice they're using actual models from time to time now. The up-gearing continues apace!

    Alice was the first Moitié designer. Apparently they approached her about recreating some of her original dresses back when they bought Moitié. So the first couple of dresses, the cross and the Juliet dress were from her original Moitié designs back when Moitié started. That was a really good idea they had and she was willing to do it. She has her own line of clothing, Fairy Wish and shop, I think in Nigata. And yes, WunderWelt sells Fairy Wish. I have an old photo of her from KERA Magazine that she posted. If I can find it I will post it here.

    Moi-même-Moitié will have the blue jeweled cross pendants available online starting at 15:00 Japan time on 10/17. Both at Moitié’s and WunderWelt Fleur’s websites.

    They also have leather bat bags available and ready to ship online now that the pre-order is over.

    And the Fairy Wish store is in Nagano. The dress is one of the first for Moitié, what is now been reissued as the Juliet dress. So yeah it was cool that the new Moitié brought back a couple of the original styles as their first offerings. I still need to get my Juliet dress.

    To update this, the photo is from the first issue of Gothic Lolita Bible. She is photographed with another lady, it is separate from Mana's Moi-même-Moitié photos

    Dp3BSYAW4AIVXkr.jpg They aren't saying yet, but I do believe there are new socks in the near future. The socks can be seen in the new Secret Garden dress photos.

    Ohhhhh, seems Moitié will no longer be having items for sale on CD Japan. Given they have Wunderwelt Fleur, it's not a surprise. This recently went into affect, with most items no longer available.

    If anyone is attending Kumoricon in Portland, Moi-méme-Moitié will have fashion in the fashion show on Saturday, along with other fashion designers. They will also be at a panel after the fashion show talking about new items, taking questions, that sort of thing. It's a joint trip for them with Wunderwelt. There will be items for sale from Wunderwelt and Moitié in the sales room.

    Ultrabook briefcases have arrived for lolitas who enjoy the Thinkpad X-Series:
    https://www.wunderwelt.jp/en/fleur/products/a-00145
    But with no exterior pockets, you'll have a tough time fitting a charger. Better tune up the power management settings in your BIOS!


    Currently available in synthetic leather only. People wanting real leather still have the bat bag as their only choice.

    Moi-même-Moitié mentioned on Instagram that they will be returning to the US in 2019. Apparently not Sakura-Con because they commented to someone to have Sakura-Con ask them to come back. No mention if their most famous model will be attending wherever they are going to.

    Mana has decided to attend the Conch Lolita x Moi-même-Moitié event in Guangzhou, China on 1/20/19. For people in Japan that want to attend, they can contact Moitié. Anyone outside of there and China...I don't know. Contact Moitié? Mana did write on Twitter that 2019 will be a special year for Moitié. It is 20 years since he started the brand.
