Animal Magic

Faux animal skin is our new favourite print for summer. Keep it classy with subtle detailing.

This season's catwalk looks range from clashing tiger-print patterns to contrasting colour blocks. Tiger print is the perfect alternative to leopard print, as the versatile design lightens a heavier frame and complements blondes or redheads with paler skin tones.

Elegant marbling and a vintage-inspired cat-eye shape command attention. Whether you're having coffee with clients or cocktails with the girls, these Alex Perry frames will get you noticed. Both colour variations are dappled with a leopard print pattern and have a metal Alex Perry motif on the temple. The grey frames feature bright white sides for a fresh finish, with gold detailing for a touch of elegance. The brown glasses channel confidence – think hot pink interiors and gold accents. The brand logo also appears on the curved tips in a nod to quality.

Leopard print has shrugged off its loud connotations and has cemented itself as a staple pattern, from single accessories to head-to-toe combinations. For a modern take on this classic print, try a bold, graphic design.
