Here’s your first look at the Chinese New Year limited edition of the new Furla Metropolis bag.

Italian fashion brand Furla celebrates the Chinese New Year with a special limited edition of the iconic Metropolis bag. The special pattern features two stylised figures of dogs surrounded by a digital motif of the rose, the sign’s auspicious flower, on a red lacquered background – the traditional colour of the Chinese New Year.

The collection also features the key ring Furla Eden and the credit card case Babylon, both drawing from the Metropolis limited edition’s pattern.

The two Furla Metropolis bags in Ruby and Gold hues represent the theme well, recalling the main colours of the Chinese New Year.

The Furla Metropolis Chinese New Year 2018 bag will be available in store and online from February to celebrate the Chinese New Year in style.

The Chinese New Year – also known as the Spring Festival – marks a new lunisolar year: this year the celebrations in China start on February 16th and end on the 21st. 2018 will initiate the year of the Dog, representing loyalty and kindness.

During the Chinese New Year celebrations and at other important events, friends and relatives in China give young ones the hongbao, red paper envelopes containing money and symbolising good wishes for the new year: this gift, in fact, is supposed to scare away a mythical monster (called Sui or Nian, according to different legends).
