A mere soupçon of the sauvage is more than enough for us -- or in my opinion, for anyone.
Yes, leopards and cheetahs (fashion-wise would someone please explain the difference in the spot thing between the two animals?) are with us through the summer and they continued to roam the catwalks into fall and winter. Always a good sign.
Translation: If you haven't already bought into the trend you've got time and it's a good investment, you know, all things considered. . . My philosophy: Might as well get a little piece of the action when you know it will give you long-term fashion dividends. Whatever. You get my drift.
Instead of going on and on about this spot on movement, herein I shall offer ways and means to dabble in it without going whole hog.
(BTW Eau Sauvage is a sublime fragrance for men from Dior. It smells just as delicious on women.)
From the top: A lounging leopard; an 18 karat gold bracelet; stylish sunglasses; a Louis Vuitton bag; Repetto ballerinas; a bit of the beast -- not literally of course -- in a belt from Sonia Rykiel; a just-for-fun umbrella; a skinny headband, all time French bad hair day solution ; a silk scarf from Dolce and Gabbana; red soles and a reasonable heel from Christian Louboutin; unspeakably chic needlepoint mules; and a is it in is it out -- who cares -- pashmina.
