It was just a year ago that Hilton Hotels rolled out the red carpet for Chinese travelers with thier Hilton Huanying program. Now today, the brand is celebrating, um, celebrating its Chinese guests with a special limited-edition pair of of "Water Dragon" slippers designed by fashion designer Vivienne Tam.
The slippers are available only for one month exclusively for guests of the Hilton Huanying program which is in place at 70 participating hotels in 23 countries.
But if you aren't heading to any of these places any time soon, don't fret. The slippers will be for sale for $28 on www.hiltontohome.com while supplies last.
Here's a description of the slipper:
The stylish slippers feature a mirrored design of two intricate inward-facing blue dragons swimming in a turquoise "sea" - a common symbol of optimism, harmony and fulfillment in Chinese culture. Featuring rich shades of blue inspired by the Hilton Hotels & Resorts signature color, the slippers celebrate the Year of the Dragon and are available in a men's and a women's size and made of soft terry cloth, plush cushioning at the toe and a textured sole.
We've been known to swipe a pair hotel slippers (or two) during our stay but these are so cute, we'd definitely cough up $28 for them. Keep reading for how to get your own pair!
