If you wanna buy fashion pieces that never go out of style you should – besides the LBD and the trenchcoat – invest in some animal prints. Season after season they’re a big trend on the runway, as well as on the streets.

In case you’re getting with the good old leopard print, there are plenty more animal-inspired prints on the market. Perhaps a Zebra dress (as seen at Louis Vuitton) or a snake skin jacket (like we saw at Burberry)?

And if the natural colors of all those animal prints are not daring enough for you, opt for some color. Burberry, Louis Vuitton and Blumarine all showed that. And though we’ve never seen a blue zebra, we still think it’s kinda cool.

It’s also nice to know animal prints can be mixed and worn together this season. So wear your favorite zebra skirt with your snake skin jacket and your full on trend!

Here are some pictures. Get inspired!

Trend Report: Animal Inspired Shoes

Animal prints have been very popular in fashion for ages now. For this winter there were less animal prints on the clothes, yet looking at the shoes, it was one big designer jungle.

Blumarine opted for zebra prints, Blugirl for leopard and snake prints. Also Emporio Armani, Rochas and Etro gave their shoes a leopard look. Vivienne Westwood did so too, yet showed her leopard print in red.

Dries van Noten presented some croco leather and at Dsquared designers Dean and Dan used pieces of skeletons as heels for their shoes.

Of course Roberto Cavalli, king of the animal prints, exceeded everyone by using leopard, giraffe snake and tiger prints for his heels and boots.

Which print are you gonna be strutting the streets in?

Catwalktrend FW2010: hairy situation

For a lot of designers we hope it’s going to be a cold winter. How else would they get rid of their many enormous fur coats?

The fur coat we’ll see this winter is thicker than ever before. The models at the Chanel show looked like snowmen and at Michael Kors they resembled big hairy animals.

For Fendi Karl Lagerfeld came up with patchwork fur, at Chanel he opted for faux fur and stated: ‘You fake chic, but you can be chic in fake fur’. Viktor & Rolf’s first look was Kristen McMenamy wearing an gigantic fur coat (under which many layers of clothing were hidden).

Lanvin, Thakoon, Hermes, Bottega Veneta and D&G put a small belt around their big fur coats to give it a little more shape.

We saw real and faux fur in just about any imaginable color. PETA activists won’t be so delighted, but the fur looks really were show-stoppers.
