Animal prints? I definitely consider them a classic now. Whether they're graphic black and white zebra prints, to (my personal favorite) leopard spots, they're one of the best, and fun, ways to add that extra oomph to your basics. But lately, patterns aren't the only thing that's prowling the fashion jungle. We've seen a lot of animals cavorting on nearly every article of clothing, be it tops, dresses, bags, and shoes.
Remember the playful Prada monkeys from Spring 2011?

|Riccardo Tisci went wild with panther prints. Love them!|
|Ok I know it's impractical, but I kinda want this cat's ears baseball cap. And that sly sheer skirt.|
Mayo W. from Lookbook.nu has some pretty cute animals in her closet, like this bird-print top...
and this adorable Kate Spade woven elephant bag...
As for me, I'd probably want to be cozy snuggly in this horsey sweater if ever I was living in a colder climate...

Have I already whetted your style appetite for animals? Yes? Then I'm pretty sure you'll love our latest collection now live at Martina-Martina.com.
Our Kingdom Animalia collection is a lovely zoo of creatures that you can wear day and night, in or out of the office.
My favorites include the zebra-print scarf in salmon, an oversized wrap that I'd wear with a mini dress, or a cute pair of leather shorts and a tank.
|Isn't this print so cute? And the scarf is quite sheer, so your neck won't feel like it's in a sauna!|
|It's also quite long so you can wrap it several times around your neck.|
There's also the leopard head earrings, a fancy pair of clip-ons that I find quite sosyal.
|And it's blingy too!|
Finally, there are the brooches. I know people normally don't wear them, but you can accessorize with them more creatively. And it's not as overexposed as other jewelry pieces, so they stand out more.

|Instead of wearing a necklace, why not accent your button-up top with our black swan brooch?|
