Trend Update | The New Animal Print

We’re not talking about the classic leopard. We love it, it’s chic and timeless and we hope that you have at least one leopard statement piece in your wardrobe. Since late 2014 the spots have dominated animale market share and we have not complained, especially if you take a look in our closets. Nonetheless, like all things fashion – it is a cycle.

Animal prints haven’t gone away, not a chance. They have however, taken a more off the beaten track path. Instead of the understood and much embraced savannah forays, creatures a little less ordinary are being thrown into the spotlight. Chameleons, scorpions, creatures of flight even sea life have all found their way onto dresses, skirts even ball gowns as placement prints or all over patterns. If you remember what we talked about recently, about mixing prints with stripes, well this is another argument for the good old mix and not so match. Designers are getting sleek with their melding of contrasting colour with prints, stripes and repeats with sophisticate as the key word.

It’s inevitable that we are going to see in stores shortly a wealth of animal prints and it’s a trend that we’ll be making sure to explore further. If you’re still scratching your head going ‘I just can’t see it?!” we’ve curated some perfect examples for your inspiration! And classic animal print lovers, take heart – your beloved feline companion is still plenty in vogue, if we take the recent fall/winter display as anything to go by. It’s just that they have some pretty stiff competition this coming season!
