Chinese New Year

Celebrating Chinese New Year in style

4 Mins

This Friday 16 February will see us bring in another Chinese New Year and this year it's the turn of the Dog, representing loyalty and honesty.

Celebrations will take place across the city (don't miss the beautiful red lantern display on Multrees Walk, signaling good luck and good fortune for a lucky and prosperous coming year), but here are some ideas to get you into the festive spirit.

Oriental-inspired arm candy

British luxury brand Mulberry has introduced a lust-worthy capsule collection featuring three Chinese-inspired new colours; Pink Peony, Orchid Red and Primrose Pink. 

The collection features two of the brand’s most-loved styles, the Mini Zipped Bayswater and the Amberley, as well as a streamlined wallet, and you can even opt for limited edition rose gold hardware.

Wear the zodiac

Swarovski's Zodiac collection is an ideal gift for Chinese New Year. Made from the auspicious golden coloured crystal, you can choose from all 12 signs of the zodiac.

Chinese New Year sees The Pen Shop extend their Cross Chinese Zodiac Series with the Year of the Dog collection. These stunning writing instruments were hand-crafted from the finest materials to honour the Year of the Dog and feature deep-etched engraving with 23KT gold inlays, crowned with a brilliant red Swarovski crystal.
