Jordan Brand

Jordan Brand is seeing in Chinese New Year with a brand new Air Jordan 12, honoring the impending Year of the Pig with pigskin leather overlays and super luxe detailing such as quilt-like multicolored lining, Chinese characters of the left shoe's tongue, and metallic gold accents add to the luxurious finish of the kicks. Dropping February 5, early iterations are already circulating at StockX.


Gucci's Chinese New Year offering goes the whole hog, comprised of pig-inspired knitwear, jackets, bags, and even sneakers. Highlights from the line include GG-adorned accessories which use an original 1933 illustration of Disney's "Three Little Pigs" as its graphic embellishments. Menawhile a colorful dancing pig shimmies on tees and sweatshirts and a flying pig can be seen on knitwear and a shiny brooch.
