The festive season isn’t over in the fashion world, as many fashion houses have released limited edition collections to celebrate the Lunar New Year and the Year of the Tiger.
Falling on the 1st of February this year, the Lunar New Year is just around the corner, and with it come vivid colours and designs. Thereby, many luxury fashion brands are preparing to launch their Lunar New Year capsule collections. With the tiger as the Chinese zodiac sign for 2022, rest assured to see tiger prints all around, as well as patterns that go beyond the fiery and fierce animal.

Inspired by the water tiger, Dior Homme’s Kim Jones together with American artist Kenny Scharf take the Dior men’s collection for this Lunar New Year to a more serene side. Prime examples include the Kenny Scharf Bermuda shorts, cardigan, shirt, t-shirt and sweater, dominated by white and blue colour. More traditional, on the other hand, the Kenny Scharf jacket and sweatshirt still inherit the prominent red, more classic to the Lunar New Year.

Prada’s take on Lunar New Year fashion is a little different. By launching their Action in the Year of the Tiger campaign, Prada hopes to raise awareness towards the threatened big cat species.

In addition to fashion campaign, Prada has also initiated an art project inviting art schools students to create artworks with their own interpretation of the tiger. The selected pieces will be used in other campaigns to come in 2022.
