Glamor, provocative and lustful: in a word animalier. Originally it was known as zoote and represented the wearing of animal skins. In fact, these were used by primitive men to warm up and protect themselves, but to wear them also had another spiritual meaning. The Egyptians, for example, used the skins of the cats because they were attracted by the aura of sacredness that surrounded these animals. Or Gillne, they were worn as a symbol of status, especially by aristocrats who preferred to have embalmed animals in their homes. Today, the term animalier contains all those prints of animal matrix: python, leopard, tortoise, zebra and tiger. Following this trail was also Valentino, who in 1987 also created a collection that had this same theme as its cornerstone. Indeed, he was given the nickname "King of the fashion jungle". And finally, in the early 90s, Gianni Versace made a change of course and introduced the animal print also for men's fashion. This winter stylists return to make the animal style protagonists of their creations. Not just in clothes, furs tulle and lace wedding dress, pullovers and over clothing, but also accessories. Bags and ankle boots take on a new face: the wild one.
