A brand new The Jungle Book movie was released this spring. Reason for fashion brand Kenzo to launch a special collection dedicated to the Disney movie. But it wasn’t just the designers at Kenzo who figured jungle would be an appropriate spring/summer theme. Dolce & Gabbana, Gucci, Louis Vuitton and Missoni among others all turned their catwalks into a wild nature celebration. Each in their own way of-course. At Balmain, Philip Lim and Kenzo the dresscode was safari chic all the way, with kaki colored overalls as far as our eyes could reach. Antionio Marras gave his camouflage attire a tropical touch and at Missoni the safari jacket was given the ultimate holiday touch. Burberry, Coach and Saint Laurent hinted to the theme more subtly, presenting some animal printed statement pieces. Then there were the models at Dolce & Gabbana, Louis Vuitton, Hermes and Gucci rocking the brands’ full on flora and fauna suits. Junya Watanabe went all the way with it’s male models wearing big braided wigs, safari hats, patchwork T-shirts, bright printed scarves with beads and fringes, handmade jewellery and wooden accessories, creating a true Junya jungle. Fashion darling Dries van Noten probably interpreted the trend in the chicest way, pairing tropical palmtree printed shorts with leopard sweaters; this summer’s bare necessities. Welcome to the jungle.

Trend Report SS2011: It’s a jungle out here!

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!
