Kanebo will release its pre-order-only Twany Milano Collection 2013 for the holiday 2012 season in Japan in November/December. The collection includes:

– Twany Milano Collection 2013 (face powder, 1 shade, ¥12600, ¥21000 with an extra refill)

Pre-order period: from now to September 16th
Release date: December 16th

– Twany Milano Collection Eau de Parfum 2013 (¥10500)

Pre-order period: from now to August 16th
Release date: November 16th

This year, botanical extracts used in Kanebo’s Twany line are featured in the Milano Collection so the collection this time is called Twany Milano Collection (not the usual Milano Collection).

You can see all the previous designs of the Milano Collection face powders here.

Please note that this is a pre-order-only collection. Milano Collections are only officially available in Japan and the best way to secure your items is to place your order at a Kanebo retail point in Japan. (Please also note that the release dates are collection dates, not dates when the products will be available for sale.)

hi there,
how can i order this powder? & how much does it cost? i’m in Indonesia, & i dont think that Kanebo in Indonesia has this line.

Looking fwd to hear from you, thank you.

Hi Varida,

I would just like to remind you that the information on availability, pre-ordering, and prices was in the post when I published it. (Essentially, to order the powder, you will need to be in Japan to place your order (before September 16) and to collect it (after December 16).)

Thank you for your questions.

(To CT, who left a comment and asked identical questions to Varida’s: The collection is available in Japan only, and please refer to my answers above.)

It looks very sleek and beautiful this year. Argh, tempted to order it. I noticed that some Tokyo drugstores have it available at a discount from the list price, and I’ve seen it sold after the collection date, so maybe some shops order extras.

Hi Kuri,

This is very useful information! I sometimes suspect that the Milano Collection items can be purchased without pre-ordering after the collection dates. I do of course have to go with the official information in my posts, but I will link to your comment when a reader asks me about their availability.

Thank you very much for stopping by again! :)

A super late reply, but yes, it’s certainly best to go with the official information, as certainly not all drugstores will have it available for sale :)
But I have seen it in multiple drugstores (discounted too :)), so I wouldn’t say it’s a rare practice. if one were to make a visit to Tokyo after the collection date, odds are good that one could find it.
Hrm, 10 days till pre-order ends. I’ll wait and try my luck as I’m on a no-buy.

Hi Kuri,

Thank you for letting me know. It is good to know that there is always a possibility that it will be available after the pre-ordering period/ collection date. I will certainly bear it in mind! :)

Thank you for posting your comment again! :)
