Well, obviously I am male and yes I certainly would wear/use that bag. Leopard (or indeed any animal print) is not in anyway specifically feminine to me. What really caught my eye was those amazing patent black shoes with the contrating red trim on the bottom left of the photo! Great shoes, does anyone know who they are by?
Okay, I have to ponder mens/unisex accessories…I have come to the conclusion that I love the offbeat prints, but dislike the feminine touches. For instance, if that leopard bag had wider handles constructed with distressed leather, I’d be all over it like a fat kid on a Smartie!
I disagree that this is unisex. Honestly….. It’s just really gay which is good. Each of the respective patterns featured are specifically gendered and just combining things which are masculine and feminine at the same moment doesn’t equal being ungendered. I’m sorry sartorialist. I agree with pretty much everything else you do or say except this.
Well, at least its Dolce & Gabbana. I can spot their print a mile away! I think it’s not fopr everyone, but by the right personality and with the right outfit, it can definitely work. AND I have never been able to understand why women need a whole bag and men not each day. Surely guys have ‘stuff’ to lugg around…
normally you nail it.. this one’s not so good though. come on, take another look. the beiges create a homologous look with no contrast . agreed, bold patterns in calm tones are a staple this summer, but these two together have no flair and just create a forced consistency in colour palette.
