Leopard prints elicit strong feelings. Diana Vreeland said “I never met a leopard print I didn’t like” and Man Repeller’s Leandra Medine voices the time-honored opinion that “…leopard print is a neutral.” Leopard prints can go Kim K flashy, Deborah Harry punky or Jackie O classic. For pre-fall 18, leopard prints abound, and look right for coats, dresses, separates and accessories. Many of the prints use “realistic” markings, but novel approaches include mixing different scales, stretching and distorting the motif, or taking a flat graphic approach.
