For us Filipinos, Chinese New Year is the time we see Tikoy, Kiat Kiat trees, and lucky charms in abundance! We surely don't need to be Chinese to celebrate this auspicious occasion, and we're definitely in the mood to join in on the festivities with food and fashion!
This year, brands like Gucci, Keds, and Givenchy joined in on the Chinese New Year craze by launching capsule collections that highlight beautiful pieces perfect for the celebration. A lot of these pieces are red, as this color said to be one of the luckiest hues to wear. It symbolizes wealth and prosperity, something we all wish for as a new year arrives! A bevy of options in other colors are available too, and come in many different pieces you can inject into your existing wardrobe—all in the name of style!
