New season trend alert: Animal Instinct
BY LIZZIE, WOMENSWEAR EDITOR ON 30 AUG 2012 13:58 TRENDSCOMMENTS
As we continue to showcase our hot key trends for the season ahead, our instincts are telling us to make a roaring great noise about the animal attraction we’re feeling this autumn – with safari style prints all the rage here at Debenhams.
Usually, in our trend reports, we tend to take you through the fabulous garments on offer prior to suggesting a few bits ‘n’ bobs from the accessories department. This time around, we’re showcasing shoes and bags first for, though a tricky trend to get right, a simple accessory can be all it takes to get this trend in the bag. Take a look at our Designers at Debenhams ranges and you’ll see what we mean.
When it comes to animal prints, sometimes it’s best to simply say it with shoes so, luckily for animal lovers, we’ve got loads of options for you this season. Whether you’re a woman who loves wedges, suede boots, ballet pumps or peep-toes, you can step into style at Debenhams. Take a step towards Faith and Red Herring to slip into some of our gorgeous new season styles.
If you prefer to go animalistic and fully embrace the trend, one of our Designers at Debenhams, Julien Macdonald, has gone all out with his Star by Julien Macdonald range. Another of our talented designers, Ben de Lisi, fully embraces this trend too with an all-over leopard print dress, while Red Herring takes a panelled bodycon style and mixes it with animal print for a triple trend effect.
It’s not one for the faint-hearted but, with Julien’s style savvy, we’re definitely feeling that this trend is certainly more beautiful than barmaid – she may be starring in Celeb BB right now, but no gal wants to look like leopard-lovin’ Bet from Corrie.
We don’t need animal instinct to tell you that…
