From jumpers and cushions to shower curtains and weddings, the South American camelid is this season’s must-have animal adornment
November can be a chilly, soul-sapping time. Not only is it dark at 5pm, but, most importantly, you have no idea what the next whimsical animal trend is. What on earth are you going to festoon your cushions with?
Fret no more – it’s llamas. Yes, it’s (finally) time to say goodbye to ubiquitous unicorns – one-horned, prancing, glittery, rainbow-covered idiots – and wave hello to your new friends. The South American domesticated camelids are ideal for the fashion crowd and social media obsessives alike. Not as relentlessly pink as flamingos, or as fishy as mermaids, they’re cuter than pugs, thanks to their shaggy coats, funny ears and expressive “smiles”. Even better, their exotic origins mean they pair perfectly with on-trend cacti, mountain ranges and bright hues.
