THE COVETED — be stylish

THE COVETED — be stylish
Many years ago, my husband and I were at the Vintage Fashion Expo, and while there I thought I would get the “perfect” leopard print coat. You know, that vintage leopard print coat every woman should have in her wardrobe. As I pulled out a leopard print coat which I thought would be the “one” my husband put his hand on my arm, and said, “Nooooooooo. Not that coat.” Not that coat? Was it too long? “As far as I’m concerned, leopard is a neutral.” Don’t like leopard prints? Once upon a time leopard was considered a luxury, well, because the only way to get it was to kill a leopard. “But to wear leopard print, you must have the kind of femininity which is a little bit sophisticated.” In 1947, Christian Dior came out with the first leopard print dresses for day and night. Earlier this year, Elizabeth Hurley came out with a swimwear line for girls, in, you guessed it leopard print. Sexy, exotic, tacky, classic, neutral… it seems that leopard print is the most polarizing of all the prints.

The cult at its finest: as Yohji Yamamoto prepares for an upcoming show in Paris, Wim Wenders captures the reticent designer in what is commonly a habitually private scene.
