The Christmas holidays may be over, but Chinese New Year is fast approaching and we’re feeling quite festive! One custom people practice during this holiday (aside from enjoying copious amounts of food, of course) is to buy new clothes, because the Chinese believe this signifies the beginning of a new year. The color red is also important, as it is traditionally said to drive away evil spirits and bad fortune.
So when H&M’s Chinese New Year collection landed in our inbox, we were all, “Aaah, perfect!” Featuring cute monkey prints, glossy textures, and pops of red, the line is everything we could ever want for ringing in the Year of the Monkey.
Check out the gallery for the entire collection—we’re personally lusting over the croc skin sling bag and the incredibly cute tassel skirt!
