Italian designer Regina Schrecker designs theatrical costumes as well as fashion accessories for women. At some point she must have brought out a line of neckties for men; this is one of them. I'll date it at 1978-1980, to give the animal print and narrow width 2-4 years to migrate from punk fashion to mainstream(ish) menswear. They were still migrating well into the 80s, but I'm guessing Schrecker was on the leading edge, on the basis of her theatre connection and her cool name.
