00_Dolce_and_Gabbana_DGarchive_SS_2005TIMELESS Super excited for the upcoming events next few weeks. Sadly at the moment I can’t tell you nothing but especially one which will be held this next week. More news coming up! little hint would be inspiration ‘Africa’. It’s an endless source of inspiration for creatives in all fields. I think, the animal-print is an content stylish history. Oops! I’ve already said too much. anyway I’ve got so many exciting news & projects coming up that I can’t wait to share with you guys. Well my research starting with personal archive from my wardrobe and my library.

07_YuriAhn_theStylistme_feminine_leopard_with_Dolce_and_GabbanaIt’s not secret that I love always the urban jungle safari look and needless to say how much in love i am with leopard print even before i starter working for Dolce&Gabbana. Of course to love the print you have to love the animal too. It was amazing to go on Safari in Africa and to see a real life leopard, elegantly draped on a tree, in the shade, having a dose. Here! I took out all of my leopard print outfits, and they’re a lot and want to suggest what to wear with animalier prints. Many people assume that leopard print is hard work to wear, sexy or even vulgar, but with the right accessories it can be a chic feminine look for the daytime too. First Ultra feminine leopard The corset s one of my favourite items. I think it’s a must have piece in every woman’s wardrobe.  08_YuriAhn_theStylistme_feminine_leopard_with_Dolce_and_GabbanaAnd now, some suggestions of accessories that work well with leopard print. I think large, crystal or pearl necklaces work well. They lift the outfit give some colour and a touch of classic class. Dolce&Gabbana now have added to their leopard print roster the Animalier Bike. As you have already read, i participated in the launch event of the bike along with other bloggers.10_YuriAhn_theStylistme_feminine_leopard_with_Dolce_and_Gabbana 10_YuriAhn_theStylistme_feminine_look_leopard_with_Dolce_and_Gabbana10_YuriAhn_theStylistme_styling_tips_a_-boyish_twist_to_leopardA boyish twist to leopard!

As well as wearing one whole leopard print piece, i also like to mix and match with other elements of prints. I like to create feminine looks with floral prints.

12_YuriAhn_theStylistme_mix_and_match_leopard_with_sequins_Dolce_and_GabbanaThird Mix & Match part 2 something a little more formal. I don’t look to serious eh? But you know i do like to create some harmony with contrasting pieces. For example i like ripped grungy jeans with a sexy chiffon and lace baby doll or for #PFW i wore white leo print with a sequins blazer.13_YuriAhn_theStylistme_mix_and_match_leopard_with_sequins_Dolce_and_Gabbana 14_YuriAhn_theStylistme_mix_and_match_leopard_with_denim_Dolce_and_GabbanaFourth The urban jungle safari look. To celebrate the warm season and animalier, Swide has done a small shoot with me, entirely leopard clad, cycling on the Animalier Bike. What fun!15_YuriAhn_theStylistme_mix_and_match_leopard_with_denim_Dolce_and_Gabbana I love to wear my leopard print with denim, whether its a mini skirt of skinny jeans. A leopard print camisole with a denim mini in very feminine yet casual, while when wearing a white shirt it becomes good office wear.16_YuriAhn_theStylistme_mix_and_match_leopard_with_denim_Dolce_and_Gabbana

17_YuriAhn_theStylistme_passion_for_leopard__Dolce_and_Gabbana_Animalier_bicycleLast one! The shoot was a request by out Editor in Chief of Swide, he wanted total leo on the leopard print bike. I was a little ashamed of the leopard overload!

While doing research, I was reminded one of my favorite (most beautiful) collection from Dolce&Gabbana Spring Summer 2005 : Africa04_Dolce_and_Gabbana_DGarchive_SS_2005Domenico Dolce & Stefano Gabbana took a trip to South Africa, Botswana and Zimbabwe over the Christmas break. the SS 05 collection was dedicated to the continent and to two of the most iconic photographers who immortalized its people, wildlife and scenery: Richard Avedon and Irving Penn.


03_Dolce_and_Gabbana_DGarchive_AnimalierLeopard print is a strong string in Dolce&Gabbana’s DNA, every season there’s leo print and new and exciting colour variants.
