Obsessions: Animal prints

Obsessions: Animal prints

Thanks to their potential to be both statement-maker and wearable staple, animal prints are having a real moment. From snakeskin textures to leopard spots, there’s an array of ways to embrace the trend and we’ve handpicked eight style muses to inspire you this season.

Marilyn Monroe

Audery Hepburn

Claudia Schiffer

To lend a cool touch to your outfits, take note of Marilyn Monroe and Audrey Hepburn who energised their iconic looks with a simple printed accessory. We’d suggest styling a statement accessory with understated knitwear and black jeans to add a wild edge. Or if you love Claudia Schiffer’s take on the trend as much as we do, mix leather textures with a combination of leopard accessories – when it comes to autumn/winter 18, more is definitely more.

Kate Moss

Naomi Campbell

Angelina Jolie

To make an impact, look to investment coats this season – think Kate Moss and Angelina Jolie in their cold weather staples. Elevate outerwear further by teaming it with an animal print dress or go all out in printed separates. Our most-wanted Leopard Print Esme dress is a wardrobe mainstay that can be reworked for every occasion. And if you want to go head-to-toe in leopard, draw inspiration from Naomi Campbell who channelled an unforgettable all-over look at the Azzedine Alaïa 1991 show.

However you choose to weave the trend into your wardrobe, look to our irresistible animal prints for inspiration and take a walk on the wild side this season.
