When thinking of Summer trends, designers are never far from the tropics of Africa. Rawr! Leap into the trend as the tradition references continue to inspire. Animal prints - particularly big-cat spots - are a perennial favourite, and this season they're scattered across flowing gowns and cocktail numbers. Safari suiting is also back, with khaki jackets, crisp skirts and white shirts still holding appeal, whileBalenicaga brought modernity to the look with safari trousers featuring a techno sheen. This season's Africana also mixes ethnic prints, raffia-work, tribal sketches and intricate beading into a modish melting pot of ancient techniques and avant-garde ideas.
