Lunar New Year 2022 falls on 1 February and kicks off the Year of the Tiger. Signifying courage, confidence, and ambition, designers are embracing the tigers’ meaning with audacious capsule collections in electrifying hues, cult-favourite silhouettes and, of course, plenty of tiger stripes.
Valentino is celebrating the Year of the Tiger with the Valentino Tiger 1967 capsule collection. First appearing in the Haute Couture Autumn/Winter 1967-68 collection, the tiger motif adorns ready-to-wear and accessories including the new Valentino Garavani Locò bag. Shop now
In honour of the Lunar New Year, Gucci presents #GucciTiger. A collection of ready-to-wear, footwear and accessories boasting tigers overlaid onto florals and greenery, the designs are a reinterpretation of a late 1960s archival print by Vittorio Accornero, the artist behind the Flora artwork.

The house reworks classics in – what else? – orange and black for its Lunar New Year capsule collection with favourites like the Hourglass bag and Triple S sneaker getting a festive makeover alongside hoodies, baseball caps and t-shirts. Shop now
Marni has collaborated with Venezuelan artist Magdalena Suarez Frimkess for a retro-inspired collection that is equally flamboyant and fabulous thanks to its perfectly imperfect tiger illustration appearing on oversized cardigans, sweater vests and pyjama-style separates that, quite frankly, we want in every colour.

Known to be a little extra (to say the least) Bottega Veneta went all-out to announce its Lunar New Year collection by unveiling an activation on The Great Wall of China. The display is in tandem with its donation to the ongoing renovation and maintenance of the Great Wall of China’s Shanhai Pass. The collection itself features ready-to-wear and accessories in striking tangerine – the hue is a symbol of good luck in Mandarin. Available in select boutiques
