Meitu T9 Summer Palace Limited Edition: Showcasing Flawless Continuity of Traditional Aesthetics In Contemporary Design

The carefully designed 'Meitu T9 Summer Palace Limited Edition' was inspired by traditional Chinese colors: dark green, representing distant mountains, and turquoise, representing lake water. Mixed with vermilion accents, the 'Meitu T9 Summer Palace Limited Edition' closely resembles traditional Chinese paintings of beautiful, literary-inspiring scenes.

Two specifically designed accessories also carry unique Summer Palace-inspired characteristics. The T9 'Summer Palace Limited Edition' phone case was inspired by a classical display found within the Summer Palace entitled 'Hundreds of Birds Worshipping the Phoenix' and represents good fortune. The patterns on the fill light were taken from a traditional 'cliff & sea' design that was frequently used on the royal gowns of the palace occupants and represents a desire for eternity.

This cross-border cooperation between the Summer Palace and Meitu has displayed the inheritance of Chinese Royal Garden culture.The application of traditional artistic concepts and techniques to a modern design flawlessly blends the traditional with the contemporary.

Meitu smartphones have always been a product that caters to the fashionable and dynamic nature of contemporary Chinese youth, and their perfect combination with the Summer Palace will bring fresh traditional culture elements to them. For this reason, Meitu is proud to bring these stunning new design motifs to its young consumers in collaboration with the Summer Palace and Beijing China Cultural Tourism and Creativity Co., Ltd.

The Meitu T9 Summer Palace Limited Edition will officially be released in August, 2018. The Summer Palace has also announced that the first available unit will be on display in their collection.
