One of the new season’s practical fashion statements is all about keeping warm using vibrant patterned stoles—and our new pure wool Gattopardo Stole is fabulous. A punchy accent to solid black, grey and neutral colours, it is a great way to work in a pattern without going over the top.
Elegantly styled in a trio of subtle shades, it is a striking addition to wear with everything from trousers to a jacket, dress or suit, it adds flair to the rich dark hues of winter. Choose from Red Leopard teamed with black and green and a sprinkling of red sequins (pictured), or Coffee Leopard with its shades of dark coffee, caramel and bronze sequins, or Blue Leopard in midnight blue, teal and grey with blue sequins.
Wrap it around several times or tie once loosely past the nape of your neck to give it a drape. Wear over a jacket for extra warmth, or instead of one when you think the weather has warmed up—but you are not too sure! The stole is 2ft 2in (67cm) wide by 5ft 10in (178cm) long, excluding tassels.
