Several fashion houses and brands are releasing capsule collections to celebrate the Chinese New Year, which falls on January 25, 2020. It’s the Year of the Rat and many brands are paying homage to Mickey and Minnie Mouse.
Pandora has released a Shining Rat Charm, $75, with a rat wearing the Pandora crown atop their head. In addition to these adorable charms, they released Disney’s Chinese New Year charms, $85, featuring Mickey and Minnie in traditional Chinese outfits, which are really cute too. For an extra dose of good luck in the New Year, the bail of the dangle charm is shaped like a Chinese fortune coin.
Riri’s Fenty has unveiled a stunning Stunna New Year Highlighter + Lip Set: Lunar New Year Edition, $66.
