For the festive season this year, Marks & Spencer has released an exclusive Chinese New Year womenswear collection. The carefully curated designs of contemporary wardrobe essentials resonate fabulous style, while perfectly embodying the spirit of celebration.

Numbering 11 pieces, they are suitable for both dressed-up and dress-down days throughout the Chinese New Year festivities and beyond. The different designs also retain elements that highlight tradition and themes that surround the occasion, including a seasonal colour palette, silhouette, pattern and fabric.

Bright reds for example, are featured throughout and bring to life the tradition of luck and prosperity for the new year ahead. Feminine florals are also infused across key pieces, highlighting traditional Chinese cherry blossom trees and floral pattern motifs.

Some of the star essentials from the collection include premium longline satin blouses, timeless trench coats, classic chinos, and luxurious woven tunics with flattering fits.

The classic denim jeans and the white shirt have been elevated for the season, with intricate floral embroidery that will help breathe new life into any wardrobe. This is in addition to lingerie, offering soft feminine layers. Floral print pyjamas make for great additions to a woman’s sleepwear wardrobe as well.
