ZEBRA PRINT

The beautiful Black & White striped jacket in a soft mock suede, was inspired by the unique patterns of the African Zebra.They present different patterns in Black & White stripes, each being different and unique. They are related to the African equids (horses) although they have never become domesticated. They are on the favourite list as lion food,although they defend their offspring with a vicious kick, packing a mean punch and deterring young lions from feeding on their young. The pattern has influenced fashion over the years, but never featured as dominantly as now, with not only the particular print being  a popular trend, but also featuring prominently in the concept of Black & White. I devote this outfit to this beautiful breed. I happily revived an old pair of Palazzo pants which seemingly finds it's way back onto the fashion scene from time to time.

So by the way, the Zebra lives in small harems.....
