In celebration of the Lunar New Year on Jan. 25, marking the beginning of another 12-year cycle; a renewal in Chinese culture, designers and global brands launch dedicated capsule collections to usher in the good luck—at least in the style area. There is something red, something gold, something with a playful mouse icon.
Michael Kors takes everyone on a playful journey home for the holiday with its campaign featuring its ultra-luxe Cece bag with a special jeweled clasp.
The bag in lucky red hue brings a sophisticated punch to any Chinese New Year outfit, or those worn beyond the holiday. It also comes in black, white, and soft pink.
Also part of the collection are gold and red jewelry pieces, and the Maci watch with a chic embossed leather strap in red.
Available at Michael Kors in Central Square Bonifacio High Street Central, Greenbelt 5, Newport Mall, Power Plant Mall, Rustan’s Makati, and Shangri-La Plaza Mall.
Step into a prosperous New Year in a stylish and truly festive Kickstart sneakers from Keds.
The special update comes in white supple leather with gold-toned details and hardware, including gold eyelets and a removable rat charm.
Festivities continue inside with red details with gold accents and a Dream Foam insole for comfort throughout the festivities.
Available at Keds stores and department stores nationwide.
When talking about famous mice, no other one comes close to Mickey Mouse. The Disney icon appears in the Lunar New Year collection of Gucci developed by Alessandro Michele.
Key to the collection is the new Mini GG Supreme canvas with Mickey Mouse print, a beige and ebony fabric that features a vintage Mini GG print with Mickey Mouse playfully applied in varying scale.
Leather goods include a small shoulder bag in Mini GG Supreme with Disney’s character in small icon, a small bucket bag with large Mickey Mouse print, and continental and zip-around wallets, among others.
Mickey looks so fine as a small pattern on backpacks, double shoulder tote, luggage sets, and trolley cases, among a couple more others. The famous mouse is also featured in the new Gucci Tennis 1977 sneakers and Ace sneakers for women, and Ace and Rhyton trainers for men.
There’s a Disney theme in women’s and men’s ready-to-wear as well as accessories, too.
Available at Gucci in Greenbelt 4 and Shangri-La Plaza East Wing.
