The fashion world has long considered leopard to be another neutral and this season kicked its obsession with the print into high gear.

The pinnacle of this trend? A leopard-spotted fur coat. New York designer and furrier Dennis Basso channeled a modern grunge queen with a silk charmeuse lace dress worn under a natural lippi coat. In Paris at Givenchy, Riccardo Tisci showed a printed calf jacket with a fox collar, giving the print a high-fashion twist. If a leopard print coat is too much to handle, test the waters with a spotted accessory.
