Trendy, chic, sensual and captivating, the animalier trend now invades the collections of the best designers worldwide. A fashion that never goes out of fashion, a timeless evergreen that has infected the non-followers of this animal-inspired texture. First to establish itself as a trending print, in prehistory, animal skins were used as clothing for warmth and then, after many centuries, establishing themselves as a status symbol of wealth, power and nobility.
When did it become a trend?
With Bettie Page, American model and one of the most famous pin-up from the 50 that, with the photographic jungle betty service, set in a park where he was pictured with a leopard print dress and surrounded by various animals including zebras and leopards, says a new femininity both in fashion and in the culture of that period very austere and conventional. The animalier then invaded our homes, creating comfortable and warm mood recalling Africa, available to give a warm sensation even during the cold winter.
