ANIMAL INSTINCT

March 17, 2014

Animal prints again reign supreme this season, as they have for the last few years. By transcending the bad ( but sometimes fun ) fabrics of the 80s and 90s , this trend has avoided it's mistakes and stuck to key silhouettes in which it always works -  a little vintage inspired but finished in a far superior way. In the same way that nature's fauna never goes out of fashion , this trend will also never die. Designers may tire of it for a season or two but rest assured your investments will stay relevant for the rest of your life. Leopard print has become a staple in my wardrobe and I treat it as I would a neutral - paired with a black or white t-shirt or some simple pumps , it becomes an interesting pop for an otherwise bland outfit. Being a bit of a magpie, I do like leopard on leopard with a lot of gold jewellery to offset the look  - but then again I do feel like I missed the 80s and I'm forever trying to make up for it! Here are some things high on my wishlist at the moment...Swoon!

Clockwise from top left:

1) Dolce & Gabanna bra
2) Giuseppe Zanotti sandals
3) Saint Laurent sequin leopard skirt
4) Valentino flats
5) Balmain t-shirt
6) Camilla & Marc dress
7) Proenza Schouler bag
8) Roberto Cavalli cuff
9) Saint Laurent shoes
10) Versus skirt
