As fashion’s fiercest trend, it seems animal print really is the ‘new black’ for AW18. Offering a high-octane alternative to the subdued earth tones that permeated a number of the new season catwalks, the animal print look was a runway favourite for style heavyweights such as Tom Ford, Diane Von Furstenberg, Victoria Beckham, Calvin Klein, Michael Kors and Carolina Herrera.
From zinged-up zebra to lashings of leopard, it may not be for the faint-hearted but there’s no doubting that this is as fun as fashion gets. So let your style sensibilities run free with the wildest buys around.
