Winter 2020-2021 Lucky Pack Round Up!

Lucky Packs, or “Fukubukuro” / 福袋 (sometimes called “Lucky Bags”, “Happy Bags”, “Happy Packs”, “Happy Sets” or sometimes “Special Sets”) are blind bags of clearance merchandise that you can buy from Japanese stores at the end of the year. It’s believed that keeping old things into the new year is bad luck, so to get rid of all of last year’s clearance that didn’t sell in winter clearance sales, shops will put it in these blind bags and then sell them at a huge discount. It’s a great way to get a lot of brand new stuff for very cheap… as long as you like and fit into pretty much everything a brand makes. Be aware though; you will not get the best selling, most perfect item from the brand of your dreams. If they had a dud item this season, chances are that’s what you are going to get.

It’s become a little like “black friday” in the United States where some stores that don’t have great things to put on sale (maybe they just don’t have a lot of clearance) will often stock a limited number of a specific item just for these sales. In these cases, they usually call them “Special Sets”, instead of “Lucky Packs”. These bags can contain either all items that were made just for these sets, or a mix of special items and clearance. Baby the Stars Shine Bright and Angelic Pretty both design new prints for their new years special sets. While Metamorphose is known to use leftover material to make skirts and dresses in simple patterns.

The list got super long in the last few last years, so I’m including a quick-jump list. I’m also not including anything outside of Japan this year (at least not yet), again, just to keep this manageable.

This year, with the pandemic, everything is kind of weird. A lot of brands did a random early November release? And/or released on December 1st. It feels like each year they push slightly closer to black friday.

Online Shop will start reservation from 15:00 on December 19, 2020
This is different from normal, normally, they so 12:00. So, in EST (New York, USA) time, this is 1am on the 19th, if my back of the napkin math is correct.

2021 Happy Pack (☆2021ハッピーパック☆)
2021 Angelic Pretty Cabinet Happy Pack ( 2021エンジェリックプリティキャビネットハッピーパック)
Angelic Pretty Original Print Happy Pack ( 2021 Angelic PrettyオリジナルプリントHappy Pack)
¥ 22,000 (tax included)

I have no idea what キャビネット means in this context. They list is as original print in the blog. I’ve put both names. I don’t know if they mean “mystery” or if it’s literally a hint about the print? or if it’s just a 2nd way to say the same thing? Beats me. I just woke up.

Pack Style A Contents:
JSK (print) x 1
Headbow x 1

Pack Style B Contents:
Salopette (print) x 1
Barrette x 1

You will not be able to pick which pack style you get, or what color you get, it will be random.

The print won’t be announced until it goes live.

Cream cookie collection high waist jumper skirt set
28,380 yen (tax)
Features Ivory x Wine Ivory x brown yellow x brown

Honey Cake Confectionery set
¥ 19,580 (tax)

There are two colorways of this, Yellow x Brown, which will be online and Ivory x Brown which is limited to in-store. Fit-wise, a semi-similar item from the past ran small, so, I guess keep that in mine?

Rose tea garden skirt
27,280 yen
Pink, green, navy, black

There is a note here that says “※渋谷店のみの入荷予定となります。” Which I think means that this is limited to only the Shibuya shop.

All packs will ship after Jan 1, until Jan 1, it’s all pre-reservations.

These went up December 17th at 10PM New York time (EST)

2021 福袋 (2021 happy bag)
11,000 Yen

Will include 2 dresses, one of them is an original print.

My guess is that means the other is like solid or a polkadot or something like that.

2021 アウターver. 福袋 (2021 outer ver. happy bag)
25,000 Yen

The webshop says it includes 1 winter coat + 1 dress, 2 pieces in total
* 2020 Winter coat is not included. (so it probably is a past season)

The Facebook post says “will include one coat and two dresses (one of them an original print series!).”

The shop was closed for a while in November due to back orders as well.
