With the Lunar New Year falling on February 1st, the Year of the Tiger approaches. Tigers symbolize strength, power and fearlessness, so when we hit the Lunar New Year, I’m channeling as much tiger energy as I can get.
Thankfully, brands are launching limited edition collections in honor of the Lunar New Year.
CR rounded up the collections to shop this new year.
With their new collection, Prada celebrates the power of the tiger, also raising awareness of the risk of their extinction.

Bottega Veneta is doing great for this Chinese Lunar New Year. The house took over a piece of the Great Wall of China in its latest large-scale activation to celebrate the annual holiday. Bottega’s signature green hue mixed with a vibrant tangerine color (a symbol of luck in Mandarin) is digitally displayed on a huge piece of one of the seven wonders of the world with the inscription ‘新春 快乐’, a festive New Year message. With this installation, Bottega Veneta pledged a donation to support the renovation and maintenance of the ‘Shanhai Pass’, the Great Wall of China’s easternmost stronghold known as “The First Pass Under Heaven”.
