According to the traditional Chinese calendar, 2018 is the year of the dog. Many fashion brands, including Gucci and Diesel, have dedicated an entire collection to the event. GuidoMaggi celebrates the anniversary by being inspired and dedicating many of its handcrafted shoes to the Chinese cities…
Chinese New Year is one of the most important dates in the Chinese calendar, and is celebrated in a number of Asian countries, as well as in other communities around the world.
The Chinese New Year is celebrated on a different day every year because it all depends on the moon. This year, 2018, the Chinese New Year is celebrated on Friday, February 16th and signifies the first day of the Year of the Dog.
There are twelve animals represented in the Chinese zodiac, with their history stemming from the legend of the Jade Emperor who required 12 animals to guard his palace. And it’s because of the behavior of each of the species that each of the animals got their reputation.
The year in which you’re born can affect your personality, fortune and relationships because of the animal that is associated with that particular year. And it is often tradition that people wear red underwear on every day of the year when their zodiac year comes around, as this is thought to bring them good luck. People can also assess their lives by seeing their personality traits in the animal of their zodiac year.
The significance of the Chinese zodiac and the importance of bringing good luck and fortune throughout the year is not only seen in the color of your underwear. Fashion houses are also jumping on the bandwagon and bringing the Chinese traditions to their clothing and accessories brands, including Gucci and Diesel, and even Vogue Italia ran a Year of the Dog feature to highlight the influence of the Chinese New Year in fashion this year.
From dog inspired clothing to bags and accessories featuring cute canines, there are plenty of ways to bring this year’s zodiac year to your wardrobe. And at GuidoMaggi, you can even increase your height with elevator shoes that have an Asian influence. The Shanghai elevator boots can be the ideal footwear for bringing some Chinese good fortune to your world this year.
