Animalier prints and neutral tones for summer in the city

[On cover: Tod’s e Jimmy Choo SS2020]

There’s no need to take long and costly journeys to faraway lands to immerse yourself in the leafy vegetation of jungles and forests, go on photographic safaris to see wild animals up close and carry a suitcase packed with suitable clothing. You can just stay in the city and travel with your imagination, fuelled by fashion offering a vast range of options from colonial style safari jackets, comfortable tracksuits in neutral tones, animalier print dresses and straw accessories to artisan-style leather shoes, flat sandals and heeled mules eluding to the coats of ferocious beasts and exotic plants and fruits.

Leopard, tiger, giraffe and phyton prints are still on trend in both footwear and clothing. Some designers, like Dolce&Gabbana, have made animalier a veritable code enrooted in the brand DNA that is both sensual and ironic. An evergreen that returns season on season. Here is a collection of shoes to wear in the city from dawn to dusk.
