Lunar New Year | Beef with the Year of the Pig

by Collin Schreiber

We are bringing in the Chinese New Year! One origin of the Chinese New Year was to have a day allocated to praying to the gods for a good harvest season. Not many of us are farmers these days, but we could all use this time to focus on bringing prosperity and abundance in different forms into our life. It also marks the start of the lunar new year, creating a perfect time to get familiar with your favorite brand’s freshly created Chinese New Year merchandise.

To start the holiday off with a bang, get acquainted with Alexander Wang’s contribution of  Barney’s Designer Burger Series.

The burger is described as “a nod to Wang’s Chinese American heritage, the burger features Chinese Five Spice short rib tossed with fresh scallions on a house-made Chinese style bun. The burger is accompanied by pickled daikon and carrot slaw, cilantro leaves and is served with Freds famous fries, lightly tossed in sesame oil, wrapped in nori and topped with seaweed flakes with a side of Siracha ketchup.”

Dover Street Market is showing their tribute to the holiday buy selling brand’s limited edition t-shirts. Left is designed by brand Doublet and below is is designed by Denim Tears.
