Think Shere Khan and Tony the Tiger rather than Tigger or Tillie Tiger when it comes to the upcoming Year of the Tiger in the Chinese calendar.  Think a year of fearlessness and taking risks.  But also, think of all that merch!! But it's not the kind of limited edition product that end up at the bottom of the drawer, thankfully.

We all know that the Chinese consumer is a powerhouse, driving much of the growth of the fashion industry (still!) and so it comes as no surprise that the best luxury brands are creating really good capsule collections for the Chinese New Year celebrations where symbols of auspiciousness are more than welcome. So to have chic, fun symbols in the form of tigers (don't tell us you don't have some tiger print already in your closets....) - well, we love it! And so we've also chosen some of the best of the CNY drops, with timelessness and versatility to style within your existing wardrobe today.

From Fendi's tiger print baguette bags, to the sweetest little tiger from Marni to hang on your neck, to a special capsule from Miu Miu that is retro in feel and riotgrrrrl in attitude.
