Snakeskin Video Review

Category : Reptile fabrics, Snakeskin Fabrics

This short video shows the balanced combination of a long-sleeve, button up shirt, made out of snakeskin, along with a cute black, leather skirt. The particular print is not overwhelming in color or pattern. The black skirt helps outline the gray tones and scales of the blouse, and the texture of each article compliments the other.

Snakeskin can be difficult to dress with, because of its weight and vivid exterior, but there are numerous styles of reptilian print available. Not all like-fabrics have to be heavy, either. Faux snakeskin is made with materials that can have a mild to strong stretch, are soft on the inside, and thinner than real snakeskin. These factors make it comfortable, as well as stylish, to wear a pair of tight, snakeskin jeans.

Leather can be expensive and is thick, especially if combined with something as bold as snakeskin. Vinyl is an alternative choice because it is cheaper and lighter. Vinyl comes in matte style or patent style. A matte vinyl fabric would go much better with clothing similar to what is being worn in the video. Snakeskin is hyper on its own. Therefore, wearing duller finishes with it can help keep the whole ensemble calm and casual.

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.
