Shopping for Chinese New Year: Your Style Guide to all Things Red

Kung hei fat choi!

 

Hong Kong loves a good shop, so it’s no surprise that during the Chinese New Year holiday, we’re encouraged to wear something new and, of course, something in the notorious colour of prosperity: red. According to Chinese traditions, dressing in red as you enter the Year of the Dog guarantees good fortune and good health. We’re sold! So, in light of the festivities, we’ve highlighted some of our favourite red items in store. Happy shopping!

Who doesn’t like a little bit of lace here and there? It changes the look of a garment, (especially when parts of it are sheer) and completely elevates the fun factor. This top by Majorelle is a favourite piece of ours for a reason. With a slim fit, intricate detailing and an elegant finish, it’s fearlessly feminine.
