The best of the Lunar New Year monkey collections
Sifting through the contrived and the flashy, see our top picks on how to don the monkey zodiac in good taste this Chinese New Year

For the occasion celebrating the start of the New Year according to the Chinese calendar, the zodiac is a key symbol that many identify with. And if you're looking to incorporate the monkey motif into your wardrobe as a marker of fresh beginnings, here's how to do it in style — or, at least discretely. 

Score some style points by wearing Louis Vuitton's Jungle Fever scarf with panache and turn to Dunhill's quirky statement tie as a cheeky addition to your accessories. If a low-key display of the motif is much preferred, adopt the Shanghai Tang x Moleskine notebook and Berluti leather bi-fold — tattooed with the monkey zodiac — to keep belongings and thoughts in check.
