Snakeskin Coats and Long Skirts by Missoni

Category : Uncategorized

Italian fashion powerhouse, Missoni, has long been known for its eye-catching zig-zag prints and patterns that have made it a status symbol the world over.  For Fall and Winter of 2011 to 2012, the Milanese legend showcased another pattern that is catching just as many eyes and turning just as many heads:  snakeskin.

On the runway, the model showed off a full-length snakeskin coat that was a true show-stealer, putting all eyes on the elegant and hip selection, making it the must-have coat for fall and winter.  The Missoni snakeskin coat was a statement piece that captivated everyone and inevitably became the “statement” that everyone wanted to make with their clothing.

It is not just Missoni that is embracing the trend; snakeskin and other animal prints have been popping up all over the runways and it is evident that the look is here to stay for awhile.  It is being seen in all colors, from muted beiges and greys to bold reds to bright yellows and oranges and on all different types of clothing to accessories. Jimmy Choo showed handbags in all colors, Chloe showed a coat similar to the one by Missoni, Marc Jacobs showed a futuristic snakeskin dress, Valentino showed off knee-high boots, and Gucci showed a retro look with a modern take: a yellow snakeskin and fur waistlength jacket.

The snakeskin look is all about making it your own and doing what you are comfortable with.  If you’re a little snakeskin-shy, a handbag may be a great option for testing out the look; if you’re feeling a little more bold, boots may be the way to go for you; if you whole-heartedly embrace the trend and have a fashion-forward side that loves to be daring, one of the coats or dresses will satisfy your love of snakeskin.

Almost everyone loves the new snakeskin trend that is showing up all over European runways, but some people are not daring enough to wear it themselves.  If you love the look but do not think that you can pull it off, the best alternative for you is to incorporate snakeskin into your wardrobe through snakeskin accessories.

Although snakeskin can be found on boots, belts, and all other accessories, a snakeskin laptop case can solve two problems, since it is often difficult to find a laptop case that matches your personal flair in a market pervaded by bland options.  Most of the laptop cases on the market are made from nylon and mass produced in China, which is far from being unique, stylish, and exciting.  Most professionals are not able to take part in the fun and fashionable trend that Hollywood stars have been wearing everywhere, but through laptop cases, you are able to walk that delicate balance between conservative and daring that will get you noticed around the office, but in a good way!

There are a wide variety of options to fit your personal taste; one of the most striking options is a laptop case made from elaphe, a rat snake commonly found throughout the southeastern United States.  This particular type of skin is white with various shades of brown with diamond shapes as well as smaller patterns that when joined together produce an amazing piece of art.

 

Snakeskin laptop cases come in every color and skin type imaginable, so it is all about finding one to suit your individual personality.  The best part of snakeskin items is that all items made from genuine skin are unique, so, while similar, there are slight differences between each bag, which fashionistas appreciate, as there is nothing more bland than cookie cutter fashion accessories.  You can guarantee that you will never be dull or blend into the crowd with one of these fabulous statement pieces.  A snakeskin laptop case is more like an ancient mosaic than something used for storage.

 

Although it is beautiful, it is also incredibly functional: your laptop fits snugly into the case, secured against scratches and dings and there is plenty of cushioning to ensure that it is well protected. As with other laptop cases, each snakeskin laptop case has its own organizational features for storing flash drives, pens, and other items.

 

While a snakeskin laptop case may be considered an investment, it is well-worth it, as snakeskin is far more durable than other, more traditional fabrics used to make laptop cases.  In most cases, they will not show wear, even after several years of use.  While other laptop cases may only last for a matter of months, one of these laptop cases will, most likely, last for a lifetime.

 

This is the perfect way for professionals to take part in the snakeskin craze that we are seeing everywhere, taking their office accessories from boring to brilliant immediately.  Your laptop case is certain to make your co-workers envious!
