While the world takes the pledge to stay home and spend a majority of their time binge-watching shows, Netflix’s debut of its original true crime miniseries, “Tiger King,” has given a new meaning to the word viral.

“Thanks to the hit Netflix series Tiger King, a very different kind of royalty has got people searching. Tiger, leopard and zebra print searches have all more than tripled over the last month,” Lyst revealed in a newly published report.

The global fashion search platform analyzed fashion’s top ‘Stay At Home’ searches by the looking into the shopping behavior of more than a million consumers. Lyst dove into the searching, browsing and purchase patterns of users, also using Google and social media search data to inform findings. The company also explained that “as the rapid spread of coronavirus Covid-19 continues to affect our daily lives around the world, global fashion search platform Lyst is tracking its effect on our online fashion searches.”

The data also specified that “searches for ‘Kenzo Tiger’ have spiked 200% month-on-month, while Anine Bing’s Tiger sweatshirt is among the most popular products of the week.” The $169 sweatshirt is totally sold out on the Anine Bing website, however we hunted down a few sizes left on Revolve.
