Lunar New Year Editorial: Year Of The Rabbit

This editorial features Maison Q 2023 Chinese New Year Collection. The handmade clothing featured is produced using several original print patterns which are designed exclusively by Maison Q for Year of the Rabbit.

Both Orly and Teddy’s outfits worn in the images in this editorial were customized, with one side of their garments featuring the same print, so they could match, and then the other side used fabric that each child choose. This, therefore, created a unique item of clothing and something they will truly love and cherish, as they helped create the garment. Being reversible the garments can then be worn to several events and celebrations over the Lunar New Year. Lunar New Year Editorial: Year Of The RabbitLunar New Year Editorial: Year Of The RabbitLunar New Year Editorial: Year Of The Rabbit

According to Chinese astrology, Rabbits are predicted to be gentle, quiet, elegant, and alert as well as quick, skillful, kind, patient, and very responsible, sometimes reluctant to reveal their minds to others and have a tendency to escape reality, but always faithful to those around them.

In the Chinese five-element theory, each zodiac sign is associated with one of the five elements: Gold (Metal), Wood, Water, Fire, or Earth. For example, a Water Rabbit comes once in a 60-year cycle.

This is the year of the Water Rabbit.
