Luxe Leopard

By Kristen Shirley

The fashion world has long considered leopard to be another neutral and this season kicked its obsession with the print into high gear.

The pinnacle of this trend? A leopard-spotted fur coat. New York designer and furrier Dennis Basso channeled a modern grunge queen with a silk charmeuse lace dress worn under a natural lippi coat. In Paris at Givenchy, Riccardo Tisci showed a printed calf jacket with a fox collar, giving the print a high-fashion twist. If a leopard print coat is too much to handle, test the waters with a spotted accessory.
