With so much out of the 2023 New Year series, how else can the rabbit element play with flowers? Let's take a look.
With the Year of the Rabbit in full swing, LOEWE has launched a new Chinese New Year collection featuring the brand's signature leather handmade rabbit ear knots, covering handbags, ready-to-wear and pendants. The series of blockbusters is performed by the brand's global brand ambassador Tang Wei.
LOEWE has designed a modern, minimalist rabbit ear ring decoration for the Chinese New Year collection that adds a beautiful twist to the brand's iconic Bunny bag, Basket woven bag, Hammock bag and Pocket bag.
Supple nappa cow leather was used to create soft rabbit ear knots, and new colours such as peach pollen, light grey and peach yellow are introduced to echo the fluffy sheard-pompom tail.
Napa calfskin rabbit hangings with fluffy sheared tails; Bunny-patterned dice pendants, felt bunny pendants, a collection of Chinese New Year candles, and origami Chinese New Year red envelopes inspired by Bunny's handbag cutout graphics.

JIL SANDER KICKS OFF THE NEW YEAR WITH HIS ICONIC CREATIONS ON THE OCCASION OF THE YEAR OF THE RABBIT. The vivid image of the bunny, presented on the front and lining of the black silk bomber jacket, the front and back of the loose-fit T-shirt, and the cream silk scarf, play vividly among the leaves and grass. Light green or black leather knots pay homage to one of the rabbit's unique qualities: elegance. IT ALSO ECHOES THE DESIGN PHILOSOPHY OF JIL SANDER.
The collection inherits a pure and refined fashion image. The tones are natural and intense: cream, sage, sky, grass and earth; White, black and gold. The pursuit of peace and calm, attention to detail, loyalty to people, and commitment to doing everything they can, these are the beautiful meanings of the rabbit. It is a talisman of love and care. It is a gentle and kind invitation, and the best wishes for the new year.

Maison Margiela continues the theme of "Replace the Old", integrating the brand's concept of "Recicla's New Life" to present a unique narrative film that tells the precious meaning of traditional festivals. The concept of "Recicla's New Life" follows Maison Margiela's design, reinventing carefully selected objects into new pieces, and is a value statement of the brand's loyalty to self-expression and nostalgia for the past.
This time, Maison Margiela and designer Zhang Lei's family, using the traditional materials collected in daily work as the basis, reprocessed and reassembled to create five traditional Chinese chairs, each chair has its own unique characteristics and time imprint, Zhang Lei's studio collected five special chairs this year, with waste leather, fabric, recycled pulp and other materials reprocessed and reorganized, the new materials cover the chairs that are eroded by time, but also represent the moment of "leaving the old and welcoming the new". In Maison Margiela's concept of "turning the old into the new", the memory of the objects themselves also gives them hope for a new life – which echoes Zhang Lei's creative philosophy.
