The primary objective of the camouflage pattern is simple: to blend in. Fast-forward to the present, and you have an evergreen print that can be translated into a fashion statement. In this case, the Valentino cotton parka that has a military-inspired boxy silhouette. A ferocious panther sprawled boldly across its front and back lends an edge to the otherwise utilitarian print. Complement it with a shirt in a lighter tone of green and brown, and then finish the whole look with an ever-versatile pair of black slim-cut joggers and sneakers. And with that, you’re ready to hit the streets and stand out from the crowd.
