Kenzo inspired tiger takeover...but what animal will be trending next?

As everyone, even people who don't really "do" fashion, will have have noticed Kenzo's tiger jumper has caused a  frenzy on the high street for big cats. From jacquards to embroidered applique and prints Kenzo lookalikes seem to have taken over the high street with every high street brand doing their own take on this design!

I think My favourite has to be the Topshop jumper with the tiger embroidery over the green giraffe print, this design gives a nod to Kenzo while still retaining some uniqueness.

I guess the big question now is...what next? What animal will take over for AW13 and SS14?

Swans could be a possibility, there are definitely a lot of birds on the catwalks and this trend is workable for both AW and SS. With Just Cavalli's leopard print swan in his resort SS14 collection swans could be set to increase in popularity.

Giraffe prints, particularly monochrome giraffe prints, seem to be gaining popularity both on and off the catwalk-Burberry and Mulberry both featured Giraffe prints in their AW13 collections.Judging by the Resort SS14 collections the monochrome trend from SS13 is set to continue, could a black and white giraffe print be a contender for replacing Kenzo's tiger?
