RUNWAY TO HOME: ANIMAL INSTINCTS

July 2018

 


While animal print is a trend that creeps up on the catwalks every few seasons, the 1980s glam favourite staged a full-blown revival on the Autumn Winter 2018 catwalks. From Diane von FurstenbergPradaGucci to Balenciaga and Zadig & Voltaire, an A-team of designers are indulging in their wild sides this season, peppering looks with saturated spots, stripes and scales.

And while embracing the trend sartorially is a ‘yes’ from us, it’s also sparked a desire to flex our animal instincts in the home, too. Whether it be a well-placed tiger throw or splashy leopard print cushions, give your home interiors a quick, easy fashion-forward update with a touch of the exotic.
