HIDE AND SEEK

Fashion (Canada) - - The Draw | The New Armour -

We asked Dr. Matt McEl­roy, a post-doc­toral re­searcher of evo­lu­tion­ary bi­ol­ogy at Univer­sity of Cal­i­for­nia, Berke­ley, to cap­tion some of Fall 2018’s most feral looks. Here are his thoughts on the sea­son’s likely an­i­mal muses.

BA­LEN­CI­AGA

“Masters of dis­guise, oc­to­puses can change colours to match their back­ground and blend in with sand, rocks, coral and more.”

MARC JA­COBS

“Apose­matic straw­berry poi­son dart frogs se­quester tox­ins from the mites in their diet.”

MAI­SON MARGIELA

“The bright yel­low col­oration of the banana slug may serve to warn preda­tors that this meal is un­pleas­ant, distasteful and quite slimy.”

ALEXAN­DER MCQUEEN

“But­ter­flies and moths are model sys­tems for study­ing dis­rup­tive col­oration and other un­usual pat­terns like eye spots.”
