Animal Magic -
by: Katie Smith - EDITED.com
Leopard print, snakeskin, cow hide, deer hide, crocodile print, tiger print, zebra print…they were all there on the Spring 2019 runways, so cast your animal print fears aside and get close to the wild.
Classic leopard is the easiest route to take on the mass market, though Off-White’s neon snakeskin will be riffed aplenty.
Animal print represented just 6% of new printed arrivals in womenswear in the past month – beaten by the likes of graphics (27%), florals (15%) and stripes (12%). However, animal was the third bestselling print in the last month.
That early consumer stirring is evidenced in the street style of the fashion capitals, where leopard and cheetah prints were leading stories.
