Think Moleskine and you’d immediately be transported to notebook heaven. And while that’s pretty much the brand’s intent, it recently gave us another poof of action with a brand-new Mario-inspired collection. The novel ensemble presents buyers with four notebooks, a very quirky phone case and a backpack for the go.
As part of the collection, standard Moleskine notebooks are given a Nintendo touch, with each being inspired by Mario is some form or the other. There are two small pocket-sized versions of the notebooks, imprinted with cartridges and a Game Boy, along with a larger size that comes with stylized NEC Graphics. While the former will cost you $19.95, the latter makes a much wiser buy for being priced at $24.95.
If, however, you’d wish to deviate from the Moleskine staple, there’s a super-sleek roll top backpack also available for purchase. Surprisingly un-cartooned, the black bag is a steel for its tag ($159) and is pretty much a must-have for the season. There’s also a solid-looking, candy-red phone case for grabs, although this one can only be bought from select Moleskine vendors. As rightly stated in the press-release, Moleskine’s Mario-inspired collection is truly ‘a newstalgic mixture of contemporary technology and timeless paper’!
