Leopard print

Leopard print often gets a bad rap when it comes to menswear. Many consider it too gaudy and risqu? and others associate it with dirty old men who prey on young model types. But in the past couple of seasons, more men have warmed to the idea.

Animal prints

Take a walk on the wild side as animal prints, a perennial autumn favourite, reappear this season. Some designers are experimenting with animal motifs, such as panther (at Givenchy) and snakeskin prints (at Chloe).
