As the menswear shows for Spring/Summer 2020 unfolded across New York, London, Milan and Paris, it seems like the animal print trend is going nowhere.
The only way to wear animal print for SS20
Across both menswear and womenswear over the last few seasons, animal print has seen a strong resurgence. But while the women’s clothing collections have been a little more experimental with the trend, menswear has often remained a tad tamer.
But as the designers unleashed their menswear collections for Spring/Summer 2020, it seems as though they were more willing than ever to come out of their cages with the use of animal print, exploring beyond a style-staple leopard shirt that hides at the back of every man’s wardrobe.
But to stay in vogue for SS20, donning the signature shirt with your all-black attire just won’t cut the mustard. This season, the likes of Dolce & Gabbana, Versace, Dsquared and Celine have adopted the animal print trend, and they’ve opted for head-to-toe animal attire, statement trousers taking the lead and safari style that’s more wildlife explorer in feel.
But if you’re keen to add a touch of the wild to your wardrobe next season without overhauling your entire aesthetic, then investing in a new jacket to add your attire is the way to go.
Celine models ran the runway in snakeskin bomber jackets, D&G models donned leopard print trench coats matching their head-to-toe attire while Versace gave the design a latex gloss.
