This summer designers took us to a safari-adventure where we were in hot pursuit of khaki prints, leather, animal prints and fierce beige. For both countryside and urban jungle, day to night, Safari style is still present, even if it’s Fall already.

Safari was presented in many catwalks this year. Hot prints, different shapes and lines, leather and of course the Safari color palette, including beige, brown and khaki, gave a fascinating trend to fashion world.
When Burberry Prorsum and Hermes dealt with safari as an inspiration for their collections, where we saw beautiful, leather, oversized jackets, jumpsuits and khaki prints in uncommon materials, Kenzo created an aggressive collection, representative of safari style. Kenzo played with khaki color and floral and the statement of the collection were the full-length garments.
Another designer that played with materials and created a collection that hited the ordinary was Damir Doma. He created extraordinary jumpsuits and combined the neon-blue color with khaki. Also, Max Mara took us to a safari fashion ride in which the smart combinations of several materials and patterns gave an amazing result. Animal prints, fur, leather dominated in accessories when ethereal shirts in fierce beige, camel or khaki combined with imaginative pencil skirts.
Last but not least Salvatore Ferragamo preferred khaki and grey colors in classic, geometric forms in which the over-knee leather boots break the lady-like figure.
