I've never personally liked animalistic prints, in particular the leopard obsession. Lanvin's collection at H&M worked, where the trend was dipped in purple rather than sticking to the safari stereotype. And recently I came across an Alex Christopher vest that was a tropical and colourful treat away from the norm, showing that 'animalistic' doesn't have to just ignite attitude. I love the tapestry of parrots that adds a touch of fun to all things urban. I also loved a previous Etro collection that took animal inspiration in a swarv and suited direction. The trousers looked like they had delicate scars hidden in them, and the velvet edge to the jackets almost has an Aztec vibe about it. A treasure to the eye.
