Leopard print will never go out of style. Even when fashion went through its minimalist phase the print still appeared in collections. You could call it a neutral now – as it’s use as often as black a white. However, there’s nothing minimalist of neutral about the designs above. For Spring/Summer 2013 leopard print was given a punchy update, appearing in acidic brights or forming statement pieces, like A.P.C’s attention-grabbing biker jeans.

Although I love leopard print I’ll be sticking to a subtle take on the trend, investing in key accessories. Kenzo’s patenet leather pouch is top of my wishlist, along with Topshop’s pointed-toe courts. Which leopard print pieces are you loving?
