Most safaris take place in Africa, but Humberto Leon and Carol Lim's Spring 2013 collection for Kenzo took that theme to the jungles of Asia.

Field jackets were the main vehicle for the feeling of travel and adventure here, and Lim and Leon molded them into sleeveless jumpsuits (in both khaki and prints) and applied their features to other garments. More than one dress was belted by a web belt with grommet holes, and a number of skirts had the sort of large pockets adventurers use to keep ammunition or other essentials close at hand.

There were pieces that were cut from blown-up leopard prints in psychedelic color combinations. But the designing duo really played with their obsession with big cats when it came to a few sweatshirts embroidered with tigers.
