This Week I’m Coveting… Fawn Print

Although this print is nothing new (see it in Jill Stuart’s Fall 2011 collection below), more recently it has taken a sophisticated turn, transitioning from bouncy young fawn to graceful doe.



French design house Carven, led by Guillaume Henry, has some beautifully elegant pieces this season that are VERY covetable – in particular this gorgeous Bambi belted coat (find it here).


However at $1950.00 (Approx £1219.00) it might be a little out of my student budget (but a girl can dream, right?)

Some other fawn pieces by Carven – a split pencil skirt and a cropped bustier.

With inspiration taken straight from the woodlands, this print is perfect for A/W. Neutral shades and a soft pattern make this print easily wearable for both daytime and evening, it will go well with almost all colours and it can be used in a subtle manner, or to make a big impact.

Currently, there is a distinct lack of fawn on the hight street. However, I suspect it’s only a matter of time before this easily workable print filters down from the catwalks.

If you’re wanting a little deer in your life at a high street price, you’ll have to pass on fawn print for the time being. However, there are plenty of deer-inspired pieces around at reasonable prices, such as this ‘Bad Bambi’ dress from Federation (currently on sale! Find it here)


Or this Bambi t-shirt from Dorothy Perkins (here)


For a more subtle take on the trend, Oliver Bonas has an adorable ‘Bambie’ necklace (here)


So, think Disney’s ‘Bambi’, think gentle doe and fawns in a woodland clearing, think what you will – fawn print is a trend to covet.
