Celebrate the Chinese Mid-Autumn Festival with the Fabulous Crystal-embellished Swarovski Super Mooncake Trunk from The St. Regis Kuala Lumpur.
Marking the Mid-Autumn Festival of lunar appreciation (September 13), mooncakes are a traditional Chinese delicacy consisting of a round pastry with a rich filling of salted duck egg yolks and lotus seed paste. This year, they are being elevated to a previously unsurpassed level of luxury…
It’s called the Swarovski Super Mooncake Trunk, an ultra-luxurious presentation designed to accommodate some very special mooncakes brought to life by The St. Regis Kuala Lumpur hotel and Swarovski.
Swish hotels are nothing new to 21st-century travelers, but The St. Regis Kuala Lumpur offers a whole new take on luxurious refinement. Its blueprintdates back to The St. Regis New York, founded by John Jacob Astor IV in 1904. Since then the brand has crossed the globe, reflecting the Astor family’s love of travel, with The Kuala Lumpur edition opening its doors in 2016 near the beautifully landscaped Lake Gardens in KL Sentral.
The limited-edition Swarovski Super Mooncake Trunk is a suitably upmarket statement for a hotel of this renown: an extravagantly ornate box of red faux-leather glittering with 307 Swarovski crystals in Golden Shadow, finished off with vintage brass studs and an elegant clasp. Its proportions perfectly accommodate a 6.5-inch “Prosperity Mooncake with Eight Yolks” – the perfect treat to mark the eighth month of the lunar calendar.
A first-of-its-kind gift presentation in Southeast Asia, this trunk is guaranteed to remain a treasured possession long after the scrumptious contents have been eaten. Its high-end stylishness and light-catching embellishment would make a chic jewelry box, stationery holder, or even a sophisticated storage system for beautiful toiletries. Give it as a gift socially or professionally with a message tucked inside; alternatively, add a personalized branded message for a more corporate feel. Either way, it will preserve that celestial feeling far beyond the end of the lunar festival.
