Are You Charmed By Snakeskin?

-------

It was a clash of the creatures for Spring 2011. In one corner: last season’s reigning champion, leopard. In the other, python. Thakoon Panichgul, for his part, decided snakeskin, both real and as a print on sequins, had the bigger bite. Joseph Altuzarra also saw python as the clear victor. “It feels very exotic and sensual, and has a timeless appeal,” he told Style.com. “Whether you wear a full python jacket with a simple pant, or patchwork it with other materials, it’s feminine and sexy.” Sexy, and how. Roberto Cavalli‘s fringed rock goddess gowns were plenty sultry. But those in the market for something a bit more tame can still take a nibble. Michael Kors worked the skin into a putty-colored pencil skirt, and Barbara Bui used it as an accent on a trench.

    Animal print always manages to make an impression in the collections. We like snakeskin, in small doses of course.

    I don’t really like snake skin print,but i think that for a sheer dress it looks good.
