Concrete Jungle: A New Trend Puts a Twist on Animal Print

We first noticed it in Rogan's Target collection: a little twist on animal prints, in a lighter, pastel color. Then, in September, when we saw it strutting down the catwalk at Karen Walker and Lanvin, we made a note in our trusty journal. Now, as we were flipping through A.P.C.'s lookbook, we saw the muted and colorful animal prints yet again, and we said to ourselves, "Selves, we smell a trend." That's when we decided to prove it to you. Funny how changing the shade can give this wild print a totally different feel. What's your take?
