I love that Louis Vuitton still continue giving a hint of edge to the menswear when they releases the new collection of leopard print scarves for Fall/Winter 2011. If back in FW09 the fashion maison has also did the same animal-prints, this time around there's been some update in the new color arrays. It's more unisex look rather than inclined too much to ladylike.
From left: Camel (brown/pink leopard spots over camel background), Marine (red/pink leopard spots over navy background) and Fuchsia (violet/fuchsia leopard spots over taupe background). Pretty simple design with a Stephen Sprouse-esque Louis Vuitton scribble.
The only issue that I'm having with these scarves, not only the price is so pricey (US$860 each!), the material seem to have the essence of silk blend (cashmere silk). Though they look quite 'out there' in the trend factor, but hey... I still can't wear silk!

Mentioning leopard-print scarves, I actually have one which I bought in Fall '09 from French Connection. Fine, I can call it my own 'vintage' now but it still look amazing nonetheless. The color is quite masculine spot-on, in grey background and leopard spots. The wool/viscose scarf is actually reversible with darker grey on one side (and the spots in lighter hues) and lighter grey on the reverse side (with darker hues leopard spots).
I actually quite lucky that day when I went to get it at their store just beside Selfridges. Not only that it's the only one hanging on the shelf, I can't believe they give me 20% off without I'm asking for it. So, the final price? Just £16.
And I'm quite surprise that some eyes on the Tube really love the scarf too, especially when I wore it like in the pix at the bottom right. They said you look so fashion? Really? Well, that's cool...
