The mysterie behind the zebra’s signature print

Denim/ Rebel Alexa


If you wear a zebra-print outfit in a crowd, it nearly guarantees that someone will easily spot you.

However, in the jungle, a zebra’s stripes actually work as a camouflage to deter its main predators: lions and hyeans. Experts believe that the mass of stripes can confuse the predators by acting as an optical illusion that blends their figures together. Consequently, a group of 10 zebras may look like a giant striped blob that a lion wouldn’t want to take on solo.

The mysteries that lie behind the zebra’s signature striped suit in Fashion is the sophiticated black-and-white color scheme. The most importent colours in the future will be black and white as Li Edelkoort ( Lidewij Edelkoort is one of the world’s most renowned trend forecasters) mentioned in a interview. This is nothing new for Coco Chanel because she said during her lifetime: “Black has it all, white too.”
