The 2020 Lunar New Year Is Just Around The Corner — Here Are 8 New Collections To Help You Celebrate
While the turn of the new year may have passed, there’s another annual celebration just around the corner: The 2020 Lunar New Year. And with traditions of cleansing your space of negative energy and opening up your home for good fortune, there’s no reason not to celebrate the traditionally East Asian holiday. However, if you’re eager for another clean slate of new beginnings or you just want to get into the festive spirit, there are plenty of holiday themed collections that will help you celebrate.
Mark your calendar for Jan. 25, because in a matter of days the Lunar New Year (also known as the Chinese New Year) will be here before you know it. And whether you’ve celebrated the age-old tradition with your family for as long as you can remember, or you’re getting together with friends for the occasion, what better way to embody good luck than by wearing pieces inspired by the holiday?
From chic accessories that take on the Year of the Rat as inspiration for their 2020 Lunar New Year capsule collections (like Gucci’s collaboration with Disney featuring the brand’s iconic mouse) to festive pieces inspired by traditional Chinese garb, this year’s range of Chinese New Year collections knows no bounds. Which means, more chic options to choose from to get you in the spirit. Not to mention, these tasteful designs can be worn again and again, even after the holidays.
