Where the runway meets the street

Animal print has reappeared on this fall’s fashion circuit as a go-to pattern for some of the biggest fashion houses. Just as last year’s FW17 runway shows foreshadowed its return, this fall you can expect to see a range of animal-inspired prints on everything from shoes to shorts and even backpacks.

Designers such as Stella McCartney (a recent newcomer to menswear) have recently embraced the print (leopard leading the pack), allowing you to make it the centerpiece of almost any outfit. Leopard print even appeared in Supreme‘s FW17 collection in the lining of the cobalt blue coat. Other designers, such as the daring Junya Watanabe, incorporated the print into his FW17 collection, signaling that camo is no longer the go-to pattern designers are styling with. For example, take Watanabe’s COMME des GARÇONS bomber jacket, with its leopard print collar, or his plaid-sleeve leopard print leather jacket, too.

Sure, camo can lift your ‘fit to fire status, but peep our selection of animal print pieces below. Ranging from a very affordable overshirt to an almost $4000 jacket, there’s something here for every budget and style.
