    It is the return of the candelabra jewelry at Moi-même-Moitié. This time with the addition of a pearl bead. They will be available on December 7th at 15:00 (3:00 pm) Japan time on their website and WunderWelt Fleur. Most likely they will also be available at KERA Shop and Atelier Pierrot also.

    I've asked about the length of the chain, since it is different than the chain for the original necklaces. It is 46~50.5 cm. And it looks like this time you get two earrings instead of just one. I still laugh a little at Mana selling them individually and telling people if they wanted a pair they could buy two. ::mana::

    This is nice because the candelabra necklaces were something I heard people asking for during the last couple of years. I was wondering if they would bring them back since they are fairly simple to make and are popular.

    candelabras 12-4-18.jpg I've added a photo of my original set of the candelabra jewelry, in case anyone was wondering if there were any differences.

    Looks like the bérets are very popular and are selling out. So Moitié just announced a new one piece

    So last night at the show it was mentioned that Mana will be going to Hawaii in April, a personal appearance. Which most likely is with Moitié. Dates match up with Kawaii Kon. No official announcement made yet.

    Finally there is a photo of this Moi-même-Moitiê collaboration dress with Krad Lanrete. GIRLISM finally posted photos on Twitter of their November 11th GIRLISM FASHION FESTA 03 fashion show in China.

    Along with this was this pairing of a capelet with an EGA outfit

    DvezaxsU0AAuKEG.jpg

    It may be part of the Cape Button Coat https://lolibrary.org/items/moitie-cape-button-coat or maybe they are planning on recreating this? The hat and pants are older Moitié (one day someone will have a name for items from the time prior to the sale).

    Mana said he really likes green, especially this shade. I hope they will have more items in this color. It would make a great accent color with black.

    If only Mana knew someone who wore a lot of top hats who could advise him.

    It's a bit difficult to judge an item based on a review by someone who hasn't actually seen it. Plus since there have been no photos of the inside of the hat, there is no way to say how the cross is attached.

    Actually, Mana has worn top hats, along with knowing Yu~ki. There have been Moitié top hats in the past. But he doesn't own Moitié any more so he isn't making a lot of the business decisions any more.

    And since I will probably get someone claiming I'm defending, nope, just pointing out the obvious.

    Just thought I would add to this that the person making that negative comment on Facebook, they removed their comment.

    The frustration seems kind of understandable to me. I have only ordered from Moitie once after the company was sold, but it seemed as if the quality had gone down quite a bit, while the prices stayed almost the same. Maybe others have different impressions?

    I still think it was a good move to sell the company though, at least it keeps it alive. ::meev::

    The problem wasn't frustration, it was someone making an accusations about an item when they had never seen the item in person and there was nothing showing how the emblem was attached. Instead of just contacting Moitié and asking how the emblem was attached, or asking on FB, they just made a statement with nothing to back it up. I guess it bothers me because living in the US there is so much of this online.

    I've seen a number of new Moitié items in person. The first dresses are very nice with quality fabric. The fans are lovely and the scrunchies are nice also. The new candelabra necklace is pretty although I wish they would have kept using the metal coffin tags. I have heard of a few construction problems with the first hair items but someone said the new ones look like Moitié took the suggestions of the buyers and may have fixed that.

    Items I have from the new Moitié: fan, scrunchies, phone case, candelabra necklace, and jewel cross necklace (which I love and is a lot like the originals including the coffin tag).

    There is a good point with all of this. If someone buys something or has handled an item and sees an issue with it, contact Moitié and discuss it with them. Dragging a company online without having done that just looks bad and doesn't solve anything. The person who made the comment about the hat didn't contact Moitié prior to making that comment.

    btw, Moitié has always been expensive. I did a price comparison of the old vanity case to the new one elsewhere in this thread, and the new one is close in price with the original even after all these years. I do hope they will continue trying to have quality items like the old Moitié.
