The Lunar New Year marks the first new moon of the lunisolar calendar, beginning on February 12 this year and celebrations have already begun in observance of the year of the Ox. Though widely known as Chinese New Year, this celebration is actually traditional to many East Asian countries and is an important holiday meant to bring together family, celebrating life and sharing blessings and abundance with those you love.
In recent years, more and more luxury brands have capitalized on this important time in Asian culture, creating special products meant to commemorate the Lunar New Year. Maria Grazia Chiuri and the House of Dior release the latest must-have collection ahead of the upcoming holiday.
