There was something very catty going on at the Givenchy show yesterday in Paris, and designer Riccardo Tisci was not holding back. Besides the racy sheer panels on many of the pieces, there was also a repeating panther motif, cat-eye glasses and hats topped off with feline-like ears. While these details may be too literal for some, the attendees (including Kanye West, Nicole Richie and Liv Tyler) were apparently over the moon for the whole collection.
Not sure if you’re ready for your own set of ears quite yet? Try some of these inspired accessories to embrace the trend:

Daniela Swaebe 18k Yellow Gold Tiger Bangle Bracelet
Moscow Limited Edition Lion Clutch
Love him or hate him, Kanye West definitely has strong opinions about style. He’s collaborated with Louis Vuitton on a shoe line, has an apartment full of modern art that has been featured in many magazines, and even loves to talk about his accessories on his Twitter account. His most recent post? The worn leather tote above, complete with a caption reading: “Vintage Hermes travel bags are tight yo!!!”
While everyone might not get the appeal of a bag with obvious years under its belt, there’s something about the aged patina of good leather that feels like luxury. Kanye’s bag, while rough around the edges, is still fully functional and has a lot more character than somethings straight out of the workshop. Plus, I love the initials on the front–doesn’t it make you wonder who used to own the bag and where it’s been?
