Lu Han releases Forbidden Palace collaboration

Who doesn’t want a Forbidden Palace X themself themed gift?

Lu Han has the best fan memorabilia ever and I’m beyond jealous. With a theme around  deer (Lu 鹿 means deer) and reading, the collaboration with designer Wu Tong takes inspiration from books from the Royal Library as well as architectural accents from the Forbidden Palace.

The collection includes a pencil case, a six-sided  stamp that doubles as a necklace pendant and a incense burner, a paperclip, a bookmark,  a journal, and envelopes with designs from the Royal Library.

You can buy it here (taobao now ships abroad!). I also highly recommend the National Museum souvenir shop, which has pretty creative and awesome gifts for both yourself and friends. (more…)
