HONG KONG, April 23, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — This season, The Peninsula Boutique collaborates with Golden Horse Best Actress Karena Lam and her two daughters to launch the limited-edition "Dip in Love" Hand-dipped Chocolate Cookies gift set.
Passionate about art, Karena has inspired her two daughters to work on a collage of faces of mums and dads. Through their youthful eyes, the children were able to depict the unique personas of the male and female pillars of the family. Then, working alongside our talented designers, their artistic efforts were transformed into icons for this special collaboration.
The creative expression of children through art is pure and direct, while the colours are often lively and unrestrained. Pablo Picasso summed it up well: "Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up." With Mother’s Day and Father’s Day upon us, apart from showing our love to our parents, we can also bring out the "little artist" within us — that innocence and purity with which to hearten those around us.
The Peninsula Boutique "Dip in Love" gift sets feature two exclusive new flavours — Jasmine and Earl Grey — making these delectable tea cookies with complementing rich chocolate simply impossible to resist. Furthermore, they are packaged with a souvenir magnet and presented in a delightful tote bag depicting the icons created by Karena and her two young daughters. A limited quantity will also be signed by Karena herself for a truly one-of-a-kind gift, exclusively available for pre-sale at The Peninsula Boutique website. What’s more, the icons are now available for download as animated WhatsApp stickers here: http://bit.ly/ThePeninsulaXKarenaLam_WS
Available for online pre-sale from 15 April at HK$ 450 for 12 pieces. Part of the sales proceeds from the collection will be donated to Food Angel, a food rescue and assistance charity in Hong Kong.
