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 our favourite muses to inspire you this season.

Debbie Harry

Brigitte Bardot

Naomi Campbell

Shania Twain

Thanks to their potential to be both statement-maker and wearable staple, animal prints are having a real moment.

Marilyn Monroe

Audrey 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 tees and black jeans to add a wild edge – our Leonard Leopard wristlet is a versatile piece that will take you from day to night. 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 spring-summer more is definitely more.

Kate Moss

Naomi Campbell

Angelina Jolie

To make an impact, look to investment outerwear this season – think Kate Moss and Angelina Jolie in their staple jackets. Elevate outerwear further by teaming it with an animal print dress or go all out in printed separates. Our most-wanted mini leopard print dress is the perfect summer solution and can be styled throughout occasion season – just add heeled sandals and simple jewellery to let the dress do the talking. 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.
