The Contradictory Reputation of Animal Print

December 4, 2018

    “Leopard has a sexual or at least erotic connotation, because it was linked to Africa,” Régnier says. “If a woman was wearing leopard, it means that she has a savage or wild sexuality. It became one of the most used prints in haute couture, and from haute couture it became democratized to streetwear, and it went back to the African continent free of its initial symbolism.”

    Animal print trend got me really excited lately and I’ve been integrating it into my outfits for a while now. I so do love this trend and it’s the type of print you find in every season’s collection. Every item you own that has animal printed details on it will never get out of fashion.


    Animal prints, whether it is leopard, zebra, tiger, giraffe or snake skin, have long been a popular style for fashion lovers.


     The main reason it will always remain “on trend” is because it is considered to be a symbol of wealth and status, especially because of the expensive prices. Wearing animal printed clothes does not mean wearing real animal skins, this trend is more about adopting their grace and power in order to express a certain feeling.





    This trend has been around since the late 60s, when it appeared in the US.

    In ultima perioada am fost destul de incantata de tot ce presupune animal print și l-am integrat în majoritatea ținutelor din ultimele postari. Sunt mare admiratoare a acestei tendințe si consider ca orice piesa cu acest tip de imprimeu este valoroasa. E o piesa de baza in jurul căreia putem construi o ținuta care sa iasa mereu in evidentă. 


    Fie că este vorba de print de leopard, zebra, tigru, girafa, ele reprezintă elemente importante in istoria modei.






    Principalul motiv pentru care va rămâne întotdeauna "la moda" este pentru că, “pieile de animal” fie ele și artificiale, au fost dintotdeauna considerate a fi un simbol al bogăției și al statutului înalt in societate.


    A purta haine imprimate cu nu înseamnă poartă piei reale de animale, această tendință este mai mult despre adoptarea harul lor și puterea, în scopul de a exprima un anumit sentiment.


    Această tendință a aparut în jurul anilor 60, în SUA.
