Every year, Loewe has something special up its sleeve for Chinese New Year. Previously, without fail, there was always the padlock charms for the iconic Amazona bag, that came in the Chinese Zodiac animal of that particular year. Under the creative direction of Jonathan Anderson, however, the CNY collection is all about crimson (a.k.a. the colour of prosperity). The Chinese also believe that Red would scare away evil spirits and deflect bad luck, which is why it has become customary to wear red, especially on the first day of the Lunar New Year.

Since I've never been a fan of Red clothing or lipstick, I'd rather sport scarlet-coloured accessories ala Loewe style this Chinese New Year.
