A Chinese New Year capsule by Givenchy introduces Ox motifs and a selection of sharp, street- inspired men’s and womenswear in black and red hues that tap the brand’s younger audience. Casual tees, jackets, cigarette pants — urban essentials and sleek accessories designed with a nod to the Year of the Ox, a collection that “ [heralds] an auspicious period of togetherness, hope and bright horizons”. This monogrammed shirt is one such exemplar.
Over the years, Qeelin’s Wulu has appeared in a range of vibrant colours, from minimalist designs to intricate motifs.

The auspicious red agate is intricately carved, encased in rose gold and outlined with diamonds — as shown by this delicate pendant.
