To celebrate the Chinese New Year in 2020, which falls on January 25th, Alberta Ferretti presents «It’s My Year», a small capsule collection dedicated to the Year of the Rat. The icon of this collection is the famous, fun mouse character, Topo Gigio®, that was created in the late 1950s in Italy by Maria Perego and that became a worldwide phenomenon, with the help of «The Ed Sullivan Show.»
