In celebration of the upcoming Mid-Autumn festival and the unveiling of its first iteration of its collaboration with local designer, Christy Ng, Starbucks is pleased to present its artfully designed exclusive mooncake sets to be shared with 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.

Inside the tote bags are sweet surprises in the form of four new flavors of mooncakes from Starbucks Malaysia.

Joining this well-renowned flavor are also the Matcha Adzuki Mooncake, the Lotus Salted Egg Mooncake and the Chocolate Hazelnut Praline Mooncake. A combination of novel and classic flavors of mooncakes offer customers a variety that will be easily shared and enjoyed together with a diverse group of people.

To further welcome the Mid-Autumn festivities, Starbucks is also introducing a collection of tumblers, water bottles and mugs dedicated to the celebration. Stargazing is taken as the inspiration for the Stargazing Bunny Collection, to celebrate the season of reunion featuring floppy bunnies searching the dreamy constellations under a starry night. The story of the bunnies is illustrated throughout the collection, showcasing the adventures of the bunnies as they attempt to reach for the skies, and ends with the bunnies resting on the moon. This bunny-forward collection also features assorted serveware focused on shapes, colors and treatment to mirror starry scenes for more design options.
