Nike recently introduced its special Chinese New Year collection for 2019, celebrating the Year of the Pig. The pig indicates the last zodiac animal of the Chinese lunar calendar. The capsule highlights special traditional patterning that references all 12 of the zodiac. Notably, the range utilizes a traditional Chinese patchwork practice entitled 'Bai Jia Yi.' There is also the infusion of classic geometric quilt designs that boast inspiration from the 12 different animals alongside a mosaic detail.
A highlighting silhouette is the 'Air Max 98,' merging the signature 'What Te' pattern along with the Bai Jia Yi patterning. Additional footwear models in the latest Chinese New Year collection include the 'Air Jordan 12,' 'Chuck Taylors,' 'Kyrie 5,' 'Zoom Pegasus Turbo,' and 'Air Max 270.'
