16 Collections to Shop in Celebration of Chinese New Year
Hello, year of the rat!
Welcoming the Chinese New Year means many things. When it comes to fashion, according to ancient tradition from the Northern and Southern dynasties, there is deep significance in new clothing. The Spring Festival is a time for fresh beginnings and change, focusing on removing the old and welcoming the new. There is also a large emphasis on luck and fortune, which pairs with the belief that clothing is auspicious and lends a hand in warding off evil spirits.
