Most of 2010 fell in the Year of the Tiger. From the start, there was speculation that it might be a year filled with feline prints, always a favorite of China’s fashion types. Most opted for spots that suggested more cheetahs or leopards than that most majestic of big cats.
Sometimes the approach was more subtle as with this Chinese style top.
But full cat was a frequent choice.
Most common was a scarf.
But of course a hat band is always safe.
And furrier leopards were everywhere, from elite parties to the vegetable market.
For both sexes, shoes in this print were popular, often in special editions made for this year.
