Happy Chinese New Year everyone! Who else is excited about the year of the Rooster? Of all the twelve signs, the Rooster is perhaps the most grandiose, guided by its instincts— the Rooster loves nothing more than to loudly crow and welcome the sun every morning for no reason other than to show off! And not only is it the year of the Rooster, it is the Female Fire Rooster. In other words, we can just call it the year of GLAMOUR. Roosters are known to be hard workers who can find food in the barest of grounds, they’re thought to be born beautiful and handsome, and they love dressing up!

Roosters are also the most loyal of friends, but perhaps they are most known for their flashy taste and style! Luckily, 2017 is also a year full of ornately embellished bags, worthy of the most glamorous of birds in the Chinese zodiac.


The hand embroidered details of Valentino‘s mini rock stud bag is like a self portrait of the Rooster. A grand piece of selfie art.


Snakes and Roosters are most compatible, so naturally a golden gilded python bag from Chloe is on top of the Rooster’s list of must have bags! Similar style available on Farfetch for $2,290.
