Africa and all its mighty fauna have become the inspiration for one of the wildest trends of Spring-Summer 2011.
The catwalk was filled with fluid fabric, elegant lines and everything the exotic air of big African cats could bring when painted in the most fascinating pastel hues.
Blumarine, Cavalli and Givenchy created the most spectacular combination of animal printed street wear.
If you expected the trend to continue this season in the common neutral sandy colors, you could never be more wrong. The sky blue, turquoise, electric pink and mellow yellow are very much translating the animal print into disco style.
Zebra prints are matched by snake prints both on clothes and on accessories. Beautiful details and sort of a hippie combination with fringes and leather descended on bags and shoes creating a daring look for the free spirited woman.
The right way to wear these prints is combining them with a color block and accessorizing them with native style jewelry.
The beauty of this trend is that it can make the fluid fabrics absolutely amazing and compliment the long length in dresses and trousers.
The bottom line is, there has never been a better time for a woman to be a sexy wild cat.
