This year's Chinese New Year's celebration is shaping up to be different from previous iterations, with most of us spending time at home while observing social distancing. 

In the words of the famed pioneer of street style photography, Bill Cunningham, "fashion is the armor to survive the reality of everyday life."

While we would be doing away with the tradition of big family gatherings, there are still other ways of commemorating the occasion, like dressing up for the new year. 

In celebration of the festivities, we curated a list of luxury items that pay tribute to the year of the Ox. From Balenciaga's subtle placement of the Chinese character of Ox in their black and white monogram to the fun and irreverent interpretation by Gucci with their Doraemon capsule, there is T's list of the new products to ring in the new year.
