    Between its 15th anniversary and return to London Fashion Week, Preen has a lot to celebrate this season. Though show notes cited the Vincent Gallo/Christina Ricci film Buffalo '66 and ‘90s minimalism as inspirations, the soundtrack of animal noises and the choice of the Natural History Museum’s Darwin Centre suggested a more zoological origin story.

    Patchwork animal skins and prints — stingray, python, leopard, etc. — were mixed with leather and printed onto delicate silk and organza pieces for an intriguing play on pretty meets powerful.

    The jungle theme soon gave way to a spray of gorgeous, pink-peony prints — someone’s clearly been reading their National Geographic — with silver-foiled French lace and sheer panels appealing to our feminine instincts. Mustard leather and shots of navy and white also hit the catwalk, while spaghetti-strap dresses clearly echoed that aformentioned ‘90s minimalism — and for once, we're not cringing at its return.
