Part of a collaboration with Tao Liang (famously known as Mr. Bags), who’s one of China’s most influential bloggers, this classic Longchamp Le Pliage was given a cutesy twist that celebrates the Year of the Pig. Featuring a transparent body and a pouch that’s shaped like a pig’s snout, carry this piece with a shirt dress and a pair of combat booties.
This year, Moschino teamed up with Warner Bros. Consumer Products to create limited edition Chinese New Year collection that features Porky Pig and Petunia Pig (for the uninitiated, they’re characters from Looney Tunes). Not a fan of donning the pig motif? Glam up your Apple gadgets with this adorable and fashionable phone casing instead.
Nothing’s luckier than wearing red during Chinese New Year, and this t-shirt from Coach’s Lunar New Year capsule collection screams “prosperity”.

Crafted in an oversized fit, this t-shirt is from a collection titled “The Elephant in the Room”, which showcases Martin Margiela’s design influence on Demna Gvasalia. Made to look as though it has been smeared with oil with the words Good Luck on its chest — a play on the Chinese’s emphasis on luck and fortune — we say go all out and layer it underneath a boiler suit.
If you’re staying indoors all day (with air conditioning, of course), keep yourself warm by donning this virgin wool-cashmere blend cardigan that sports a pig patchwork. Dress it with an orange pleated skirt for maximum appeal.
Giving the brand’s logo a whimsical spin by fashioning it with rosebud prints, this oversized cotton jumper is all about the bizarre and playful flair.
