It's been said a million times, and a million ways, but it's something that bears repeating. No, we're not about to extoll the virtues of sunscreen, eight hours of sleep, or anything else synonymous with maternally-imparted advice. Instead, the matter concerns a print that's particularly near and dear to our heart—and it just so happens to be one that becomes increasingly relevant after each Labor Day. In the immortal words of one Leandra Medine? Leopard print is indeed a neutral, kids.
Don't believe us? We dare you to take so much as one look through jewelry designer Aurélie Bidermann's Parisian abode and not find yourself hankering for something with just a little leopard; with a catty collection spanning pieces from Alaïa, Christian Louboutin, Lanvin and Miu Miu and that doesn't even include the oversized Cèline coat that virtually haunts our dreams. Alternately, take it from none other than Rumi Neely, renowned for her ultra-minimal, pared-down vibes and typically impervious to all manner of prints and patterns, who put it best when she explained, "Nothing is as potentially disastrous or chic as leopard print."
