The Significant Reason Why Off-White's New Capsule Is Filled With Peach Blossoms
With the Chinese New Year still on the horizon, people all over are gearing up to celebrate the "Year of the Rat" in style. And while the festivities don't officially kick off until Jan. 25, you can celebrate early with Off-White's Lunar New Year capsule. The highly-coveted designer brand has launched a special collection of styles to commemorate the event, giving you the chance to bring age-old symbols of fortune, joy, and good luck into your wardrobe.
Available now, the exclusive capsule can be shopped on Off-White's website and in select stores as well as on Farfetch.com. The lineup includes pieces for both men and women that incorporate this year's zodiac symbol as well as elements associated with traditional Chinese New Year beliefs in a way that aligns with Off-White's tongue-in-cheek aesthetic.
The usage of the color red throughout the collection is meant to represent the importance of the bold shade to the Lunar New Year. The vibrant hue symbolizes fortune, good luck, and joy, and is prominently featured within the range of apparel and accessories. Items like this $955 round bag and a versatile tote with an internal removable zipped pouch, $1,090, are offered in an eye-catching red leather with "GOOD LUCK" and peach blossoms printed on each.
A longstanding symbol from Chinese culture, peach flowers represent wealth, longevity, and pure beauty, serving as yet another significant design detail incorporated into the womenswear pieces. The pastel floral is not only shown on the aforementioned handbags, but on this $310 white bucket hat, too, which would look great with more pared back pieces already hanging in your closet.
When it comes to the ready-to-wear, you'll find the flower as well as the "Off" logo have been embroidered on the front of pieces like this black cropped long-sleeve crewneck sweatshirt, $590, and on this short sleeve black t-shirt , which rings in for $320. Meanwhile, on the back of both tops, there's bold text and a rat design that highlights the zodiac sign in a playful yet elevated manner.
You can complete your Off-White look by pairing either top with the sleek Allover Plisse Skirt for $985. Covered in the brand's name, this black pleated midi-skirt is a versatile silhouette that you can also style with loads of other pieces already living in your wardrobe.
