Looking to complete your CNY 2019 #OOTD? Here are all the festive capsule collections for you to choose from.

The countdown to Chinese New Year 2019 begins now. Have you got all your outfits lined up yet? Red is a symbol of luck, and naturally the popular colour of choice this time of year. If you've been staring at your closet with nothing to wear, this list of CNY capsule collections will help get you up to speed. Below, 12 collections filled with festive statement pieces to help complete your #OOTD.


Salvatore Ferragamo

Welcome the year of the pig with traditional red, signifying wealth, fortune and prosperity. Accent your look with the fiery hue with a printed tie decorated in the newly designed Gancini monogram printed on luxurious silk.



Walt Disney's Three Little Pigs from 1933 are the stars of the the collection with their likeness embroidered on wallets, bags and sneakers. Because what's better than one adorable piggy? Three.


Atelier Swarovski

Ruby-coloured stones set in gold elements make an auspicious colourway. Accented with gold-plated filigree leaf for an extra bit of luck.



The British brand collaborated with artist Li Rui to produce a printed silk scarf design, decorated with traditional landscapes most commonly found in ancient Chinese artwork. The detachable scarf adds a modern Chinoiserie flair to Mulberry's popular Small Amberley Satchel silhouette.



Bottega Veneta

Adorable pig motifs line the collection — the silver cufflinks are the cutest! Our pick: The BV Luna crossbody satchel in deep Baccara Rose makes a great CNY #OOTD companion.


Calvin Klein

This lunar festive capsule is a first for the American brand, and spreads across Calvin Klein Jeans, Calvin Klein Performance and Calvin Klein Underwear. Count yourself covered from innerwear, then trendy denim for the reunion dinner, and even the gym sesh to work it all off later.


Miu Miu

First, decide your hue for CNY 2019. Red or pink? Next, embellished...or nah? Go all out with Miu Miu's selection of pink python print and crystal-studded matelassé leather.



The yearly scorching CNY weather is almost upon us. Beat the heat in rose-tinted glasses, c'est la vie en rose!



Say Gong Xi Fa Cai with a hint of Brit. The latest Belt bag design comes in a newly knitted form in show-stopping gold on red. Love the iconic check scarf? Here's one that's sure to turn heads.



More cartoon heroes to the rescue! Looney Tunes' sweethearts Porky and Petunia Pig are the perfect embodiment of this year's Chinese zodiac. Lovable, shy and honest to a fault, wear them proud on denim jackets, t-shirts and oversized hoodies.


Christian Dior

The toile de Juoy motif returns in flaming crimson. The print was originally inspired by classic French fabric that lined the interior of Christian Dior's first boutique. Wear a piece of fashion history in the new shade for a dose of east meets west.



Don the iconic medallion to welcome a prosperous new year. The polo tee and leather zip wallet incorporates the Chinese zodiac into its seams with an embroidered emblem, but if you're looking to make a bigger statement, look to the baroque Icon shoulder bag decorated in the festive season's hues.
