Animal prints have a way of emerging every season but in different styles, whether in colour, silhouettes or even structure. Animal prints of motifs in varying colours and sizes were juxtaposed together as runways saw cheetah prints placed strategically amongst panels of zebra stripes. Rihanna’s Savage x Fenty show underscored this mixing of wild and subtle accounts of animal prints just as Roberto Cavalli did, with differently sized cheetah prints. Snakeskin patterns were a major hit this season as they showed up in the side seams of voluminous dresses, all over on the sheer vests layered in faux furs or in several accessories such as tights-sandals and hats. Gucci and Tod’s were the forerunners when it came to using this particular motif on their lines while Burberry, under the creative helm of Riccardo Tisci, experimented with fun animal prints such as the Dalmatian and tiger print.
