The Return Of The Leopard-Print Coat

WHEN styled correctly, a leopard-print coat may just be a fashion lover’s best friend. Timeless and surprisingly versatile, it’s become a something of classic item (Kate Moss has been wearing hers solidly since circa 1994). On the catwalks, designers solidified its return this season: Givenchy, Prada, Isabel Marant and Dries Van Noten all showcased incarnations of the ageless coat for autumn/winter 2016 (firmly putting to bed any lingering perceptions of the print being synonymous with bad taste). Unsurprisingly, the stars have followed suit, proving just how wearable animal-print outerwear can be: Gigi Hadid made hers sensual; Harley Viera-Newton channelled sophistication; while Edie Campbell and Cate Blanchett gave theirs a rock’n’roll spin. How will you be wearing yours this autumn?
