Zebra, leopard, cheetah, tiger, snake… these predators of the wild have been creeping, sneaking and slithering their way through the fashion trends for the past few seasons but for Spring 2019 they will stalk your closet in a whole new way!
The animal print trend continues into Spring 2019 with unexpected colorways (like lavender, hot pink, blues, oranges and yellow) and literal animal prints, i.e. clothing covered in pictures of all kinds of animals.
At Valentino we saw a gorgeous symmetrical design of two storks facing each other, FENDI delivered flocks of birds in spice colored hues and at Dolce & Gabbana (a brand that never shies away from animal prints) we had the unexpected showing of a stunning white gown emblazoned with farm animal prints, yes actual farm animals- everything from roosters to horses and cute little piggies. At Burberry we even saw some Dalmatian print!
When rockin’ animal prints this season make sure to look for fun imaginative color takes on the classic prints. Think purple zebra, blue leopard, orange snakeskin etc. When in doubt channel your inner child. Think “If my 4 year old was to color in this print with crayons what hue would they use”. Let your imagination take the lead and don’t shy away from playing with mixing prints!
