Gucci is interweaving the old with the new this Chinese New Year. The collection is based around an archival tiger design from the late 1960s by illustrator Vittorio Accornero, the creator of Gucci’s signature Flora motif. The Maison’s Year of the Tiger collection sees Vittorio’s tiger prancing in a pastel jungle, the print adorning silk shirts, wallets and even the brand’s iconic Jackie silhouette. The other half of the collection features a bold red “Gucci Tiger” text in a typeface reminiscent of collegiate varsity logos, lending the collection a retro flair.

2022 is the year of the Water Tiger — and Kim Jones understood the assignment.

Red iterations are also available for those who want to get into the full festival spirit.

The Pink Panther shows his stripes in Saint Laurent’s Year of the Tiger collection! On the brand’s limited-edition hoodie and keychain, the beloved cartoon character shed his iconic pink coat to become an orange tiger for the season. Earthy browns and blacks paint the rest of the collection, with special items crafted from linens and silks printed with hyper-realistic imagery of the jungle cat.

Instead of opting for tiger stripes and tangerine oranges, Prada has painted their Chinese New Year Collection with blooming florals against a palette of contrasting red and black. Under the lens of Liu Song, Chinese actress Chun Xia and actor-singer Li Yifeng model the collection’s winter essentials and athleisure-wear inspired by skisports as part of the maison’s campaign. Prada will also take part in the “Action in the Year of the Tiger” initiative, contributing to the conservation of endangered Amur Tigers by donating to China Green Foundation’s Walking with Tiger and Leopard Program.
