Leopard prints are still strong. Witness this Dolce & Gabbana patent leather number. At $2195 you might bag your own leopard and do it yourself. The Miss Pocket satchel has a large zippered pouch flat side pocket. Silver polished chain AND leather straps add flair. There is some practicality to luxury.
Implications - Animal-inspired motifs make a welcome return to fashion, as consumers embrace prints and patterns with animal-esque skins. While fashion is one industry that loves the application of animal themes, other industries that could incorporate it include tech gadgets, autos and furniture. Even brand packaging can be given a fun animal twist to appeal to the more stylish consumer segment.
