The Lunar New Year is approaching (starting Sunday, January 22) and with it the opportunity to celebrate Chinese culture and wish each other good luck and prosperity for this 2023.
The animal of this year is the Water Rabbit, which, with its quiet and contemplative nature, inspires us to choose clothing and accessories that reflect this sensitivity. The traditional colors of the Chinese New Year, red and gold, are the most popular and can easily be incorporated into our wardrobe.
As every year, fashion pays tribute to the tradition of the Lunar Calendar and Asian culture with stunning capsules, accessories, makeup, jewelry, and design, all inspired by the New Year. During the 16 days of celebrations, major cities are lit up with red lanterns and store windows are decorated in this color, symbol of good omen. In the window? Damn cool accessories that combine aesthetics and tradition.
Don’t miss the opportunity to celebrate the Chinese New Year with a fashionable and sophisticated wardrobe, you can be inspired by the capsule collections that pay homage to Asia and its millennia-old culture, as well as wearing something lucky, which, let’s admit it, never hurts.

The image is composed of the brand’s four letters and a central double R symbol, all hand-painted with exquisite details that herald a happy holiday season. The garments, both practical and functional, are embellished with stylish details that lend versatility, such as the reversible down jacket featuring one side printed with the Year of the Rabbit and an embroidered rabbit logo.
