Michael Wong Man-tak is on a roll. These days the actor-singer is more often seen at product launches than film premieres, especially since he launched his MW label.

Since MW's first collaboration, with British watch brand Bremont last September, he has worked with Italian leather brand Giorgio Fedon 1919 and luxury luggage maker Rimowa. On Thursday, Wong unveiled his latest project - crystal glassware in collaboration with Ch?teau Baccarat.

The original Ch?teau Baccarat range, developed by French wine expert Bruno Quenioux, debuted in Paris in January and landed in Hong Kong earlier this month.

The limited-edition Chateau Baccarat x MW set features the MW logo and retails at HK$4,800 for four wine glasses and HK$4,600 for a decanter.

A bevy of models and celebrity friends of Wong's turned up for the launch party at Central's Gold by Harlan Goldstein restaurant, including actors Bernice Liu Bik-yee, Kam Kwok-leung and Ankie Beilke, and businessman Cecil Chao Sze-tsung. Guests sipped wine from Wong's glasses and danced to the jazz beats provided by his band.

Wong, although reluctant to reveal details, said he would be developing a menswear range next.

Asked how he balanced an already hectic show business career and the growing brand, Wong smirked and said: 'That's exactly what the MW lifestyle is about.'
