If you're taking your cues from the new fall/winter Maiden Noir/CLAE capsule collection, leopard print is all the way in.

The seven-item collection features slip-shoes, an apron, tote bag, five-panel hat, camera strap and belt that all make use of leopard print. The sole item that is leopard-less is the Yankee blue "MC" hat featuring a lightning bolt between the letters.

Maiden Noir is a Seattle/Tokyo-based clothing company that has specialized in menswear since 2006. CLAE, known for its off-beat, slim shoe designs comes in on the footwear side of this collection.

With such varied items, this is an interesting capsule collection. This is essentially an accessory release, which may be the reason for the leopard print overdose. Although all-leopard all the time might be a bit much for your wardrobe, a hint here and there can add some fun to your look.

The CLAE capsule collection is only available at CLAE’s Our Favorite Shop
