    I often wonder if there is enough interest in the Chinese New Year for all of these items that designers are making. When I go to the mall, I often see this stuff on deep discount after the celebrations have ended.

      I think it depends on where you are: In the states the appeal is most certainly limited and probably seen as a celebration novelty. In Asia the appeal of wearing ones’ zodiac sign is huge. Shoppers don’t necessarily see Lunar New Year products as celebration specific. Jewelry stores have beautiful (and expensive) Chinese Zodiac pendants of all the signs for sale year round.

      That said, I like the Marc Jacobs wallet but the “feathers” will get banged up the first time you use it…and I’m not a Rooster!!!!

      I really like the fact that designers are embracing and celebrating other cultures.

    Nice idea, except you’ve kind of put an expiration date on your bag…if your Chinese…and you really care.

    • Justice J. Srisuk

      Well, not really. The Chinese zodiac runs on a twelve-year cycle, so after this year is over, the next Year of the Rooster is 2029. So you can put it away until then, or if you’re lucky enough to be born in a rooster year like

      Unlike milk, trendy handbags never expire. Meant for the year of the rooster, but those fab bags may never expire. Look good forever…

    You forgot the Gucci ones, they’re awesome.
