Burberry is one of the few luxury fashion brands that has been consistently releasing Chinese New Year capsule collections in recent years—and this year is no different.
In a film directed by Derek Tsang, brand ambassadors Zhou Dongyu and Song Weilong celebrate the British label’s heritage of exploration and the outdoors. Titled A New Awakening, the motion picture also evokes a sense of almost childlike wonderment and an appreciation for adult friendships.

Along with the fashion film, Burberry has launched a Chinese New Year collection that features a reimagined Thomas Burberry emblem that celebrates the Year of the Ox—this year’s Chinese zodiac sign that’s associated with earth, power and calm.
“This film really represents our connection as humans to the outside world and the journeys we take in life, always discovering new things in both our environment and also in ourselves. I truly believe in renaissance: rebirth and new beginnings. For the new year, I think we all want to find love, balance, strength and hope – this is the real beauty in life.’ said Riccardo Tisci, Burberry’s Chief Creative Officer in a press statement.
