CHINESE NEW YEAR – PERFECT PRESENTS

Chinese New Year falls on Thursday February 19 and, this year, it’s the year of the sheep – or goat, depending on your attitude. According to our expert, the difference lies in the Chinese characters for the two animals – the goat’s symbol looks slightly fiercer, while the sheep is friendly. But, essentially, they are the same.

Any excuse to celebrate and give presents, as far as we’re concerned.

In Chinese culture, the colour red symbolises good fortune and joy, so it’s everywhere during Chinese New Year and other celebrations. Plus, it looks great in stylish bags from Kate Spade or Chanel, or to add a pop of colour via a Hackett belt or Maje coat.
