Celebrate the new year with these fashionable picks.

In recent years, countless designers and brands have started releasing special-edition products to mark and celebrate the Lunar New Year. Often, they highlight the animal of the year according to the Chinese Zodiac—2019 is the Year of the Pig—or feature a bright, lucky red colour.

If you avoid the kitschiest offerings, these festive releases can be an opportunity to bring a limited-edition, playful and auspicious design into your home or wardrobe for the new year. What could be more charming?
