The only print that has not only, never missed a fashion moment in every corner of the globe but also never gone out of style. It was Primarily a masculine print, first adorned by indegenous societies, used as a status symbol and for protection against the cold. The print has gone so much evolution, from the 1940's which saw women taking it over and sexifying it through the emmergence of pin up girls in animal prints. Christian Dior then infused leopard print into his collection,lines, accesories, ad's making it chic and elegant in the 1950's. Then came the hippies who took it over as a symbol of free love. The Punk rockers showed us the dangerous side of it in 1970's. I will skip the 1980's for obvious reasons.
Lately this print has adorned everything from shoes, bags, hats scarves, panties, bedside lamps, you name it. Wearing this print is not the easiest thing either. It requires an unapologetic sense grandiosity - pardon me if I sound pretentious. It is definitly not a safe print, and depending on how it is styled the end result may be cute or tragic. You be the judge... how did I do?
