Animal print is nothing new... Most of us have been wearing it in some form or other for a few years now and I'm sure it will be a good, long while before we all donate our leopard print goodies to charity. What I love about the Carlos Miele Spring 2013 RTW Collection is how he uses animal print. Mixing the prints with each other, mixing prints with bright solids, braiding the fabric to transform the print, gathering it to draw the eye to one particular spot or covering it with a sheer black layer that graduates in thickness to create another dimension. It's pretty amazing and the craftsmanship is impressive to say the least. I loved the entire Carlos Miele collection, but these animal print looks stand out the most!
