Animal Prints & Optical Trends

For the 1930 Historical Collection

A very strong trend in recent fashion shows, the animal and optical prints were born in the distant sixties when in America, the Optical Art became an absolute phenomenon, due to its three-dimensional illusions and a then young Yves Saint Laurent who dressed Veruska (his beautiful muse) in a total safari look that has since become a myth. This style has grown to be a timeless, must have, chic and original look.

Leopard, tiger, zebra, python and optical prints have been a strong inspiration for fashion designers and stylists this season. They have represented an invitation to Morellato’s experimentation. Faithful to its constant research of selections of new leather types and treatments, with the goal of turning them into wrist “emotions”, Morellato could not disregard such an invitation.

Let us discover the gorgeous print proposals in the new Glass and Chic lines, part of the historical 1930 Collection. These lines are the heart of a craft tradition handed down from 1930, and reinterpreted for the 2014/15 line, with a wink at the present fashion trends.



The new Glass line proposals feature original animal and optical prints of great visual impact. The calfskin presented into four sophisticated patterns. Zebra, optical black & white with gradient effect, silver or gold-toned tiger print and a python print in coral and sugar paper shades. Fashion reinterpretation made even more precious by the elegant sartorial details of the 1930 Collection.



The new Chic line is proposed in a new finish, soft printed calf leather with an ostrich print, very loyal to the effect of the original leather. The careful research of the aesthetic details is emphasized by the contrasting tone on tone seams that enhance the elegance of the strap, and by the sophisticated range of colors, dark brown, leather, black and white.
