Luxury brand Gucci and sports brand Adidas debut with a new collaboration signed Alessandro Michele, bringing back one of the most iconic Adidas shoe models: the Gazelle. The Gazelle in history The first Gazelle sneaker was born in 1966, and there are two paths of thought regarding the choice of the name.

Chinese New Year was celebrated on January 22, kicking off the Year of the Rabbit. In the Chinese tradition it is customary to associate each year with an animal. In fact, in the Eastern world, the zodiac sign strictly depends on the year of birth and the cycle repeats itself every twelve years. This is because a legend has it that Buddha, sensing his end on Earth, called together all the species of animals present on earth for a last farewell. Not everyone showed up. The first to arrive was the Rat, followed by other animals: Buffalo, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Goat, Monkey, Rooster, Dog and Pig. To reward their fidelity, the Buddha decided to nickname each lunar cycle with the name of one of the 12 animals. This new year was also celebrated by the sneaker world with some dedicated releases to enhance the figure of the rabbit, the protagonist in this 2023.
