Animal Print is Roaring: 8 Best Bags to Join the Pack

Animal Print. You either love it or hate it. But regardless of how you feel, it’s back in with a leap and a roar. Major brands, such as Gucci, Saint Laurent, and Chloe, are going full-on leopard print (and sometimes snake print) this season. As  Berdgorf’s “Animalia” campaign proclaims, “Consider animal prints the new neutral.” The mammalian and reptilian styles are bold, unapologetic, and—dare we wager?—likely here to stay for a little while.

So we’ve searched the animal kingdom far and wide, and we’ve made a few scientific discoveries. The result? Our favorite animal print bags out right now. See our picks below, and tell us which pack you’ll be joining! (Though we concede if animal print isn’t quite your thing. That said, this list just might change your mind…)
