Unless you’ve been living under a rock high high up in the mountains, you’ll know that 2012 is also the year of the dragon as far as the Chinese zodiac is concerned. In another 18 days or so, it’ll be bye bye fluffy rabbit, hello majestic dragon.
And while everyone from high street to luxury designer brands have been churning out dragon-related merchandise to
cash in herald the coming of the year, it did take me quite a while to sieve out the horrifying nasty (I won’t name names, but I’m sure you know what I’m referring to) from the classy and fun.
Without further ado, here are 10 of my favourite picks, from the downright affordable to the absolutely desirable. And don’t forget to check out my earlier post on the Loewe Amazona Dragon either. Rawr.
