Recently, the safari trend has been making something of a comeback.

A more understated extension of the animal print obsession, ivory tones, sumptuous linens and tan leather are cropping up all over the high street.

No one does understated chic better than uber-cool fashion house Joesph, who have decked out their Fulham Road store with stuffed safari animals. Walking by this weekend, I was immediately transported to a world of dusty wilderness and childish excitement.

The safari trend evokes old-school glamour, elegance and luxury, in neutral tones and sumptuous natural fabrics. Think linen, silk, cotton and leather – this is no place for acrylics or synthetics.

If you’re not heading for the plains anytime soon, invest in apiece by design boutique member and king of African chic, Patrick Mavros – it will never date. We particularly love his Nguni Ottomans:

Not quite within your budget? Get inspired by ThriftyThea‘s moodboard:

We’d love to know what you think of the safari resurgence so post a comment below.
