A special tea set reflecting the uniqueness of the French contemporary jewellery, which takes it cues from the Chinese story of luck, is available daily from 2.30 to 5pm through the end of July.
The recent launch led by Dr Thitiporn Sanguanpiyapan, marketing and public relations director of Sette Peccati, was honoured by Qeelin’s celebrity fans including Onchuma Durongdej, Melanie Yoovidhya, Javamond Pavarodom, Patcharapimol Youngprapakorn and Sorat Amatayakul.
Qeelin was founded in 2004 by Dennis Chan, a talented jewellery designer from Hong Kong who is fascinated by China’s art, culture and history. Chan has taken the inspiration from the stories of good luck charms that appear in Chinese legends as the main concept for his designs, which combine Western and Eastern charm.
Qeelin is today run by Kering Group, which also owns such lifestyle brands as Gucci, Bottega Veneta, Saint Laurent, Alexander McQueen, Balenciaga, Stella McCartney and Boucheron.
“Today fashion and food are so close to us that they are part of our lifestyle. We therefore decided to create a dessert menu that reflects the unique character of Qeelin brand. Here at the St Regis, guests can enjoy afternoon tea while appreciating our latest designs,” Thitiporn explained.
The brand presents three outstanding collections along with such treats as Rich and Creamy Raspberry Chocolate Hazelnut Pie, inspired by the gourd-shaped Wu Lu collection that resemble the Chinese lucky number 8 and the Soft Chocolate Charcoal Mousse Cake, inspired by the panda-shaped Bo Bo collection. The Mandarin Orange Mousse is a nod to the Wang Wang line that boasts precious jewels in the shape of the dog.
The spectacular couture collection highlights the Wu Lu Hoop Earring, the Wu Lu Lace necklace and the Wang Wang pendants, rings, and bracelets in the shapes of Chihuahua, Poodle, French Bulldog, Dachshund, Schnauzer, Golden Retriever and the Shiba.
