No, we don’t mean the popular 80s TV show with Johnny Morris, but our current love for animal prints, both in our wardrobes and in our homes.
The fashion world has long been hooked on animal prints – they are fast becoming the ‘new neutrals’, and this year’s leopard print espadrille will add a flash of funk to a classic Breton top and jeans combo. If pink is your thing, then the flamingo continues to poke its head into our wardrobes (and Alex Chung’s) – check out the fabulous flamingo shoes from New York brand Soludos and the fab flamingo print T-shirt from HUSH. Everywhere I look I see flamingos…just today I saw cards, cushions and skirts featuring our feathered friends in just one shop!
Luckily, our lovely friends at RICE have channelled the wild animal trend into some homewares and, here at Pinks & Green HQ, we’re loving it! And so, it seems, are you. At the recent Country Living Fair in London, the RICE flamingo products were hotter than ever. Flamingo print melamine, flamingo straws, flamingo cocktail sticks – if it was feathered and pink then it was flying off the shelves.
Here at Pinks & Green we think we have cool, summer entertaining nailed with our fabulous melamine plates, cups and bowls featuring not only flamingos but beautiful peacocks and butterflies too. For picnics, festivals, camping or just entertaining in the garden, team them with one or multiple colours or go wild and mix it with chevrons, stars or stripes for a fun table setting. And not forgetting our drinks cooler tanks for child-friendly squash or adult-friendly Pimms!
Now, where did I put my Pina-colada!?!
