Yves Saint Laurent first created the “Saharienne,” or safari jacket in 1967 as a one-off design for a photo shoot for Vogue Paris and debuted it in a runway show of the same year.
Saint Laurent’s reworking of a men’s jacket into elegant womenswear’s became an immediate success and was later available in a ready-to-wear version at his revolutionary ready-made boutique Rive Gauche and sold like wild fire.
To this day, safari style remains a revolving fashion trend and is currently one of the hottest looks of the season. The beauty about safari style is it’s versatility – from the boardroom to the beach, you can conjure up your very own urban safari.
Relaxed, tonal silhouettes of belted jackets, fluid pants, button and pocket details add a touch of African plains to your everyday work wardrobe.
High-waisted shorts, jumpsuits and utility style dresses in laid back cotton and linens are perfect for relaxed weekends.
Soften safari reworked in fabrics of silk and satin and add chic animal prints in leopard and zebra work so well for night-time safari dressing.
