Step into the New Year with a refreshed wardrobe inspired by the Zodiac’s luckiest animal to usher in new and good fortune.

FENDI launches an exclusive Capsule Collection to celebrate the 2023 Lunar New Year and the start of the year of the Rabbit with the special collection drawing inspiration from the reinterpretation of the FENDI Roma logo created by Marc Jacobs on the occasion of the Baguette® bag 25th Anniversary Collection and celebration—recoloured for the Lunar New Year in white and red, the dominant color of the capsule and symbol of good fortune and joy during this special time of the year.

The women’s ready-to-wear features a knitted ensemble of skirt and sweater features an all-over macro FENDI Roma logo redesigned by Marc Jacobs, in the tones of red and white. For men’s, the Marc Jacobs declination of the FENDI Roma logo appears as a signature on a selection of garments in a palette of white, black and grey denim with accents of red.

Burberry reveals its Year of the Rabbit 2023 campaign building upon the brand’s spirit of adventure, a celebration of taking a leap into the unknown.

Inspired by the Year of the Rabbit, the exclusive collection features the Thomas Burberry Monogram playfully reimagined with rabbit ears. The rabbit is a key motif running throughout the collection, including cartoon-inspired iterations: some positioned back-to-back so that the ears meet to form a heart shape whilst others sit atop the Burberry logo.

Womenswear includes a fleece jacket in a wool and cashmere blend cut to a relaxed fit, and a varsity jacket in technical wool with larkan joggers.

Bags feature a mini take on the Freya tote in red canvas, trimmed with black topstitched leather and the Burberry logo.
