Fashion: (M)Animal Prints

For a respectable brand such as Burberry, it is striking to see that this brand in particular is showing a lot of animal prints. A total mixture of leopard, tiger and cheetah prints. Classic costumes and trench coats become less formal by wearing them with leopard print shoes. Sometimes only the collars are in animal print. Show-stoppers are the trench coats that are completely in leopard print, but it remains to be seen if those will actually make it to the stores.

To complement it all, the classic Burberry tartan in men’s bags is combined with leopard print. Or perhaps the shopping bag in fantasy zebra print? And yes, even the glasses of the Burberry shades are covered with leopard print. And so is the frame.

For Versace, using animal prints is something in their DNA. And the link to bad taste is quickly made. But this time, the enlarged giraffe prints for costumes have a new and refreshing feel. A bigger contrast to the classic Prince de Galles tartan is unthinkable... also present in the Versace collection.

The prestigious brand Louis Vuitton is using leopard skin in a very subtle way, only visible from up close on the liver-coloured garments. Long men’s jackets have a detachable fake fur collar with animal print. And there is nothing tacky about the long Louis Vuitton men’s coat with fake fur. Not even when it comes in an animal print.

For a controversial designer such as Japanese Yohji Yamamoto, it is normal to experiment with animal prints. He shows long knitted, extra-large sweaters in light-pink leopard print, and knitted jogging bottoms with matching socks. And his classic English bowler hat has a zebra print.

Up to now, animal prints only seeped through to the commercial chains such as ZARA and H&M in dribs and drabs. And there, the black bag packs with animal prints at ZARA are indeed very beautiful. But affordable garments with animal prints for men are still hard to come by.
