If Joe Exotic had a taste for Supreme – not that we’ve any confirmation that he does or doesn’t – this latest collaboration with British heritage label Barbour might just be right up his big cat-breeding animal print-favouring alley. Whilst the streetwear label doesn’t need to ride on the coattails of the Tiger King to hawk merch in daytime and have them flipped for quadruple the price by sundown, the current obsession surrounding the Netflix crime docu might just be giving these leopard print merch a cause for wear too. True followers of the Barbour aesthetic also know that it’s not every day – or even at all – that the heritage label allows its iconic all-weather-friendly waxed jackets to take on an outlandish animal print or even a trippy bright orange hue. Just recall every time Kate Middleton had a pap pic taken while she was on a stroll in the park and you’ve got a rough idea of Barbour’s approach to reliable colour schemes. That said, there’s still a staple black option to fall back on if you don’t consider yourself a cool cat or kitten. The collection is available on May 7.
