Unveiling the Mask: Batavia Hotel Time Capsule Launch
In welcoming the symbolic Chinese New Year of the goat, we recently showcased the launch of our exclusive Batavia Hotel Time Capsule Limited Edition. Derived from the story of Batavia Hotel where the main character is a goat, Melissa Sunjaya shared to the room of people who were given a golden masks the symbolic meaning behind their concealment. Batavia Hotel is a means to portray the masks everyone wears in their daily life. It is a story of romance narrated through the eyes of the protagonist who conceals the pain and loss of the love of her life – the goat-head man who strayed from the truth and dissolves in a world of deceit and luxury.
This special edition is a precise reproduction of the Beach Bag with much advance quality featuring a custom serigraph art print. With only 12 pieces offered on the launch, each tote was packaged nicely in a wooden box where you will find a hand-stitched hardbound book of the Batavia Hotel Story.
In line with the launch of the Batavia Hotel Time Capsule was the introduction of two new colors from the Fall/Winter 2014 – 2015, the Plume Prints Edition. The two shades introduced were Light Snow and Smokey Night, where each purchase was accompanied by a special Plume Fortune: a red feather including a special word of charm.
