In honour Chinese New Year this Saturday we have decided to put together some of our favourite red items in celebration.
The colour red in Chinese culture represents ‘fire’ and it is also the national colour representing happiness, beauty, vitality, good luck, success and good fortune. People wear red during weddings, festivals and other celebratory events. Red envelopes “Hong Bao” are stuffed with money are a common present and are given as gifts during Chinese New Year.
The ‘Lucky’ Outfit
After a full red outfit to wear on Chinese New Year? The Bauxite Red Tencel Jacket from 2plus1equals2 is our pick. This Bauxite jacket is a structured jacket crafted from red Tencel fabric. It features button fastenings down the front. It has two external pockets, padded shoulders and is fully lined. Cut to a loose fit. We love the loose cut of this jacket as it gives off a relaxed yet polished look. Roll up the sleeves to dress it down, or leave unrolled to a more classic look. Purchase here.
Pair the Bauxite jacket with the matching Bauxite red dress from 2plus1equals2. This is an above-the-knee, short sleeve dress crafted from red coloured Tencel. It features a sweetheart neckline, two side slit pockets and subtle pleats coming from the waist. It is fitted at the bust and waist and is true to size. We love the simplicity of the design of this dress. This piece is the perfect addition to your summer wardrobe as the colour and cut are timeless. Purchase the dress here.

The Red Envelope
The Akira Origami Clutch in Red from Isalda reminds us of the red envelopes given as gifts in Chinese culture. This piece is an oversized clutch with an innovative sculptural silhouette inspired by minimalist origami.

Another Isala piece we absolutely love is the Bau Bag in red. It's a structured box bag, crafted from soft calfskin leather.
