Kimpton Maa-Lai Bangkok debuts its 2023 Kimpton Mooncake that honours the Year of the Rabbit through the illustrations by local Thai artist Jeep Kongdechakul, whose designs have been featured in many glossy fashion magazines and for brands such as Rimowa and BMW.
Kimpton Mooncakes are available at THB 2,488 net per box.
Available for pick-up at the hotel from 14 August 2023 onwards.
Drawing from Kimpton’s fashion-forward luxury, this year’s whimsical yet refined presentation of mooncakes for Mid-Autumn Festival gifting is inspired by the Chinese folktale of the noble Moon Rabbit and Chang’e, the Moon Goddess. The mooncakes are contained in a package featuring Jeep Kongdechakul’s imaginative illustrations of the elegant goddess’s fluffy loyal rabbit companion and prosperity symbols like the peony and the jade plant. The bright and bold floral designs are featured on the box and the reusable, origami-like bag it comes in.
Designed to convey love, appreciation and good fortune for the recipients, each Kimpton Mooncake collection comprises four distinct varieties including the traditional lotus seed with egg yolk, crowd-favourite durian with egg yolk, satisfying creamy custard and sweet and sour cranberry. Each individual mooncake comes in a bright diagonal hot pink and lime green striped modern box.
The representative of Cantonese-style mooncake. The filling is made of the fresh lotus seeds, packed with natural fragrance, perfect when paired up with the salted egg yolk.
A fun and tangy twist to challenge the norm. The sweetness of the cranberries blended with white lotus paste makes a unique and flavourful mooncake that many will enjoy.
Perfect pairing to showcase durian, the king of exotic fruit. The salted egg yolk cuts the richness of the durian, making a wonderfully savoury sensation.
Indulge in the luscious and creamy custard mooncake that is delightfully sweet with a hint of the aromatic vanilla. This not-so-traditional flavour is here to make a smooth entrance to your Mid-Autumn festival.
