Marking their 3rd collaboration with Singaporean designers, YTL Hotels' The Majestic Hotel Kuala Lumpur and the Eastern & Oriental (E&O) Express have collaborated with Singaporean jewellery brand Choo Yilin to bring a new vintage-inspired capsule collection - "A Vintage Honeymoon".
The collection was made to fit the art deco spaces found in The Majestic Hotel KL and the E&O Express - both of which bring a Southeast Asian touch to their vintage spaces. The Majestic Hotel KL's 'The Cigar Room' and 'The Drawing Room' take after the colonial time in Southeast Asia, while the 'Majestic Wing' gives a unique Malaysian twist to the typical English Afternoon Tea. Meanwhile, the E&O Express showcases luxury cabins modelled after the early historic Europian era, with the cabin interiors showcasing Jim Thompson's Thai Silk, and menus with a touch of Southeast Asian flavours.
Singaporean jewellery brand, Choo Yilin's the new capsule collection features popular 1930s sautoir and seed pearl halo designs, with beautiful Southeast Asian elements. Featuring a ring, a pair of convertible earrings and 2 necklaces, the collection's Asian touch come from the use of Type A Jadeite. Freshwater Pearls, 9KT Rose Gold and White Gold are also used for these luxurious pieces, all of which feature the Choo Yilin logo and 375 Stamp.
