Safari we’ve looked at the leopard and the snake as top of the animal prints this season, but it is a jungle out there with two more creeping up to usurp their fashion thrones.
This shy creature is venturing out of the forests and into the stores, ready to take on the leopard as Top Cat. Its orange and black striped coat may be used as camouflage in the wild but in the fashion world it makes a bold statement.
For all you nocturnal tigers partying all night, don a pair of sunglasses to shield your eyes from the flashing bulbs of the paparazzi waiting outside. Le Specs x Adam Selman cat eye sunglasses with tiger striped frames available from Net a Porter. Price £75.
Team with a pair of Alto pointed moc croc leather ankle boots from Office. Price £96. Not the best of mates but they look so good together!
Whilst the predator prints have had to fight their way to stylish status, the zebra’s fashion path has been a walk in the (national) park due to its already classic and striking monochrome print.
The Bafari clutch bag from Dune London is available in zebra print but why not put a cat amongst the pigeons (or in this case the zebras) with the red leopard print version in soft pony hair. Was £70 now £56.
