Zest For Zebra

by The Zoe Report

While we will always have a penchant for all things leopard, this season there is a new print on the block: zebra! Taking center stage in forms from footwear to handbags and scarves—i.e. today’s silk and wool shawl by Balenciaga—the wild motif cultivates a fresh look that is impossible to resist.

Offered in two color-blocked designs, our kerchief du jour is inspired by Cristobal Balenciaga’s Summer 1964 collection for an effect that is at once timeless and modern. Echoing the zebra prints from the Parisian designer’s fall show, it can be worn as a conventional scarf, a belt or even tied onto a handbag for a modern update. Our inclination? Style Balenciaga’s scarf alongside a bomber jacket, coated jeans and heeled booties to flaunt your zest for zebra.

Availability: Balenciaga Zebra Color Block Scarf ($495). For additional information, visit Balenciaga.com.

P.S. Don’t be afraid to get your boots a little dirty this fall. Sink your feet into SOREL’s iconic styles and you’ll be ready to move from the city to the mountains with luxurious footing.
