The Rare Panther SS 2014 collection gets literal with the lookbook, featuring a mustached Don Juan (Niko the Ikon) photographed next to a powerful black panther.

While some guys like to show off their masculinity by donning muscle tees or revving the engine on their motorcycles, Niko gets creative by parading his sleek jungle cat around. It's definitely a unique way to impress the ladies, that's for sure. Photographer Michael Faso shot the unlikely duo in Santa Clarita.

The collection, which is titled 'ACT 002,' gathers its inspiration from 90s animations, which is most evident in the t-shirts, long-sleeved tees, hoodies and hats. The clean graphics have a futuristic vibe that will surely make the line a summer staple -- whether or not you have a panther at your disposal.
