HOT TREND: Kitty Cats or WILD BEASTS!
Lions & Tigers, clutches and totes…. Oh,my! These prints are everywhere this season! Sure, leopard and tiger are always visible in some capacity, but this year, you can find these prints by almost every designer with price points both low and high! While I kept being tempted by so many of the styles out there, if I listed them all here, I wouldn’t get to review them in-depth and individually. So here are just a few from brands you know and love to get you started on the hunt yourself!
Judith Leiber Wildcat Crystal Embellished Clutch
I thought I’d start off with a dream bag. Only a few can afford, but will cherish. The quality is jewel-like and so special to see. Silver, gold and brown leopard shaped box covered with fine swarovski crystals. Gold leather lining and a fine, chain link hand that can hide inside the bag finish this bag beautifully. There’s even an designer engraved miniature vanity mirror. Oh so amazing for $5495.

Kooba Tiger Print Mason Tote
Like the tiger, this Kooba is a rare breed. Currently, it’s only available at Bergdorf Goodman, but keep a watch, I’m sure you’ll be seeing more of this beauty! Functional and stylish. This bag features a print canvas with black leather handles and trim. It’s roomy with a 12 ¾” x 11 ½” x 5 1/8” size to make it the perfect run-around day bag this season. At $395, it’s a tremendous price point, especially if you are little nervous about the wild side!

Another unique take on a leopard print, this Botkier will give you miles of use for a small price! Combining a stunning suede fabric with trendy silver pyramid studs, it combines two major trends for a little bit more fun! Best of all, it’s just $345.
