If there is one thing I love more than red coats (see previous post), it’s leopard print coats. I have two; one belted mac – very feline and sexy, and one cropped faux fur number- very retro and cute. However, there’s always room for one more addition to my big cat collection. The latest hero ‘Leo’ is this rather mod-ish somehow Parisienne-looking grey and black leopard print coat by Reiss 1971.
I love the wide deep collar, cropped sleeves and double breasted buttons. It’s cosy, contemporary and cool, but with those vintage touches I can’t resist. It’s a little pricey for a coat I don’t deem highly practical (those cropped sleeves lead to goose-pimpled wrists and the shorter length means bottoms could feel the breeze!). However, I am a little bit in awe, so depending how my crimson coat quest goes, this ‘Leo’ could be scooping up all my winter love. Will keep you updated on my final purchase(s).
