A true classic Kun Qu masterpiece would be The Peony Pavilion, an extraordinary love story which is about a young woman who dreams about a mysterious man and yearns for him. Written during the Ming dynasty by Tang Xianzu, this classical piece of work is considered as a Chinese national treasure and today, it has provided a fountain of inspiration for Aimer’s latest collection of elegant and exquisite lingerie.

Enclosed in the traditional floral pouch is a romantic pink lip case and a vintage box of face powder that  brings back recollections of the past where women powdered their face with this white talc powder. The face powder and lipstick case are actually reminiscent of this traditional form of Chinese theatre, Kun Qu where its distinctive characteristic lies in the standardized facial makeup looks, of which most recognised by the powdered doll-like faces with white and pink hues to accentuate facial features.

This is a true work of art that weaves in the elegance and romance of the Chinese love opera, The Peony Pavilion that reflects the elegance and true feminity in women. Scroll down to view Aimer’s latest collection.
