The price may be obscene, but this’mirror-effect panther motif jacket is fabulous. I’m mot sure it’s worth the price of a deposit on an apartment though…

A more subtle take on the trend is offered by this DSquared2 sweater. The?cute wildlife?animals?appear more as sketches or illustrations. With it’s slightly cropped style, it would look great paired with high-waisted trousers or a pleated skirt.
