It’s A Jungle Out There: Animal-Inspired Jewelry

designeranimalshoes 101010 m jpg
From giraffes and monkeys to swans and butterflies, animals were all over the spring/summer 2011 runways. Not just animal prints either; illustrated in bold graphics, watercolor softness, and delicate lines, fantastical creatures lived on the catwalk. Above, butterflies flutter on a model’s feet at Alexander McQueen. Giraffe necks rap around the ankles at Louis Vuitton. And at Jeremy Scott, models’ feet were of the cloven kind. Clothes featured furry and feathered friends as well: Playful monkeys covered Prada’s graphic dresses, graceful swans graced Miu Miu, and Jean-Charles Castelbajac showed kaftans with zebras rearing.

In keeping with the animal theme, we’ve found great animal-inspired jewelry for any season. Check it out — along with some additional sartorial inspiration — after the jump.
