The Moleskine brand, famous for their beautiful Italian notebooks hardly needs an introduction. It was featured in a traveling art exhibition on the Bund not long ago, but if you’re still drawing a blank, just know that it was supposedly the notebook of choice for Oscar Wilde, Vincent van Gogh, Pablo Picasso, Ernest Hemingway and Henri Matisse. Their products have been available through various resellers in Shanghai but the company has just launched their first freestanding store in the world and chosen Xintiandi Style mall for its location. Though not a large store, the kiosk has the widest range of Moleskine products found here. It has specially-formatted journals for every interest under the sun: travel, style, cat, dog, food, wellness, wine, film, baby, as well as the limited edition Snoopy and Le Petit Prince. It’s worth checking out!
