Loud, bold and eye-catching, animal print has long been a staple on fashion runways. This season, three fashion houses focus their collection on looks that evoke Amazonian landscapes and manifests inner strength via animal patterns, prints and illustrations. With all the spots and stripes, it’s actually a neutral, meaning you can wear it with everything. And when we say Jungle (Look)Book, we mean zebra, giraffe and snake prints too and not just the fierce looking leopard print. Also, animal print here doesn’t mean animal skin. It can also mean a fabric that’s been printed, painted, or embroidered to look like the cool textures and patterns you see in nature.
We round up these fierce looks for the modern women–from earrings and bracelets to clothes and footwear, the options to stand out this summer is wild!

Chloe Spring / Summer 2019 explores the notion of “hippie modernism” by drawing from the various influences that express bohemian free-spiritedness. The bags are rounded with a belt curving around with its signature “O” hardware and come with a double strap connected to metal rings in a mix of golden brass and silver finishing. This season, the brand also introduces seasonal variations including a crocodile embossed leather. The bags stand out for its saddle shape and decorative stitching, along with sinuous hardware and leather strips that extend from the zipper pull and body as added flourishes. The double-carry style features wrapped handles and a longer strap, whereas the single-strap satchel offers a more compact format. Pale beige, smoky blue, dark green and chestnut are among the new colour options, whether small grain calfskin, croc-embossed leather or in supple suede with leather braiding and tassels.
