I was just getting tempted by the Starbucks mooncake sets when Starbucks sent me one of their Media Drops... And of course, I was deliriously happy and over the moon...
I mean... The Christy Ng X Starbucks mini tote bag and those scrumptious mooncakes were really soooo delightful...
Anyway, yeah... Since Mid-Autumn festival is round the corner, Starbucks collaborated with local designer, Christy Ng to present its artfully designed exclusive mooncake sets to be shared with your good friends and family this year!!!
The Mid-Autumn Festival has always been a celebration of reunion and harmony between families, and this year, even as everyone remains far from their loved ones, they can still remain close at heart with this limited-edition collection.
The exclusive mooncake sets feature distinctly-designed mini-tote bags by Christy Ng, which draws inspiration from the ancient folklore of the festival but with a modern-day twist. The design of the tote bag illustrates a tale of its own, in the form of the Crane fetching Chang’e, the prevailing protagonist of the Mid-Autumn festival, an Osmanthus flower from earth to quell her nostalgia of family and home as she sits far away on the moon.
Bridging the gap of longing and familiarity, like Chang’e, families can now extend their love and gratitude for their loved ones through these specially designed mooncake sets to each other even while apart.
The two bags from the collection are available in two colorways, the Starbucks® x Christy Ng Exclusive Mooncake Set in Burgundy Red and the Starbucks® x Christy Ng Limited Edition Mooncake Set in Midnight Blue.
