We Go Wild for Safari Fashion

25th Jul 2014

Jo rounds up the best zoo-inspired pieces…

Call it the safari effect, but we’ve fallen in love with an animal collective. Ever since Mulberry declared pugs a catwalk essential, we’ve been craving furry friends to add a little wildlife to our wardrobes. As Cara cuddles up with parakeets. Louis Vuitton’s statuesque creature comfort comes by way of golden giraffes.

In London, Ryan Lo masked models in bestial disguise, channelling a pack mentality and mammalian power. Indeed, Mexican Shamans have long proclaimed the power of our inner animal spirit, our Nahual, while the Chinese zodiac’s animals rule our personalities from birth. So fasten ear lobes with a tiger or bird, and embrace the art of animal instinct.
