URBAN JUNGLE: THE WILDEST AW18 EDIT
Posted on August 30, 2018 by Alex Perrins
As fashion’s fiercest trend, it seems animal print really is the ‘new black’ for AW18.
Offering a high-octane alternative to the subdued earth tones that permeated a number of the new season catwalks, the look was a runway favourite for such style heavyweights as Tom Ford, Diane Von Furstenberg, Victoria Beckham, Calvin Klein, Michael Kors and Carolina Herrera.
From zinged-up zebra to lashings of leopard, it may not be for the faint-hearted but there’s no doubting that this is as fun as fashion gets. So let your style sensibilities run free with the wildest buys around.
We’ve hunted down our must-haves from Harvey Nichols.
