Lunar New Year Designs

With the recency of Lunar New Year, it is only fitting to discuss fashion that has recently been inspired by the holiday. Nike and adidas both have red and gold colored shoes. Many luxury brands have also designed pieces to commemorate the holiday. Dior created an oriental style tote and Gucci has capitalized on the Year of the Pig to create pig themed products.

Integrated design from culture may be a way to show respect for the holiday, but to some it may also be seen as cultural appropriation to capitalize on such an important holiday in Asia for the sake of monetary gain.
