The most exciting style story of the season is animal prints. They are the choix du jour making a huge comeback with fashion designers worldwide.

In the 18th and 19th centuries, animal fur signified wealth or status. Now with the wonderful selection of faux fur, textured and printed fabrics we are seeing a resurgence in new modern designs and prints.

Our relationship with fur is reflected in our love of animal prints. For instance, although we admire the wild spirit of tigers and leopards, we also fear them. Fur is so lusciously soft and irresistible to touch, even when our instinct tells us it is dangerous.

Animal prints incite the playfulness in the women who wear them.
