This season it seems that fashion is going feral as designers blend a childlike sense of humour into their collections.

While the latest line of fun colabs mixes Jimmy Choo's sexy footwear design with artist Rob Pruitt's cutesy panda prints, the most popular kiddy movement is happening up top.

Animal heads of all species are decorating the chests of fashionistas the world over. Kenzo's seemingly misplaced lion head on a sweater at the Paris winter shows has turned it into one of the most coveted 'It' garments of the season, and Kate Bosworth's modelling of Burberry's owl sweater at their fall show made the piece an instant hit.

Fuzzy creatures are now adorning woolly winter jumpers in the northern hemisphere - and at our end of the world (where the sun is supposed to be shining), lightweight summer tees.

Will you heed the call of the wild this summer?
