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.

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.

Snakeskin Laptop Case

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!

Celebrity Snakeskin

Celebrities are sporting snakeskin fabrics.

Snakeskin, a look that has many fashion thoughtful individuals pining for in their wardrobe, has poachers on the hunt to make big bucks out of real snakes.  However, there is an alternative to this cruel and thoughtless behavior which is with the adaptation of faux snakeskin.

We are not talking just any old faux snakeskin, but high quality fashionable vinyl snakeskin.  Snakeskin is most notably featured in accessories such as purses and shoes; however, faux snakeskin is making its appearance more and more in other forms of clothing such as dresses and leggings.  Leggings are so in right now, that a hot pair of faux snakeskin leggings would be perfect.

Speaking of faux snakeskin, celebrities are beginning to embrace the faux snakeskin trend more and more every day.  This is largely due to PETA’s work with having celebrities pledge not to wear animal products like true snakeskin or fur.  Celebrities from all across the globe are pledging not to make the taboo decision to wear real snakeskin.

Celebrities like Mariah Carey, Snooki, Naomi Cambell, Sienna Miller, Emmy Rossum, and Rihanna can be seen wearing all snakeskin outfits both on the red carpet and the runway.  These celebrities look stunning in their animal outfits, but it can be hard to distinguish the faux snakeskin from the real snakeskin.

Mariah Carey always wears the sexiest outfits on the red carpet and while performing.  She can be seen in a sexy form fitting mini snakeskin dress that is tanked on top as well as in a gray snakeskin pattern color.  Mariah Carey looks both playful and beautiful wearing this animal inspired getup, and shows how to wear snakeskin without being too over powering.

Wearing snakeskin inspired fabrics can be a fashion disaster if not paired correctly with other pieces in your ensemble.  This is, because snakeskin inspired fabrics are so powerful on their own that when someone wears snakeskin designs with the wrong pieces it can throw the look completely off.

Snooki, a reality T.V. star from MTV’s Jersey Shore, wears an off the shoulder faux snakeskin inspired look that is a little more flowing that what many expect snakeskin outfits to be.  Snakeskin designs are generally out of true snakeskin, faux leather, or leather.  However, the best way to achieve this look in a much sexier way is to purchase a fabric pattern and have the piece made from faux snakeskin vinyl fabrics, because the look of snakeskin is better suited to faux leather than to cotton or other natural fabric.

Using faux snakeskin vinyl fabrics there are many different options out there depending on the look that you are going for.  Some are stretch, some are not, and some stretch in both ways and others look only good stretched in one way.  There are also so many different faux snakeskin vinyl colors that you can turn an outfit from a simple gray or black snakeskin inspired outfit and turn it into blue or a sexy fun pink.  The options are endless.

Naomi Cambell has been seen on the runway in a more modern one-piece number of brown snakeskin.  This outfit is a tube top jumper with pants that end at the knees.  This look is both sexy and playful, as it invokes images of childhood clothing.  This one-piece, Naomi paired with a lacey bra, and bold black leather inspired necklace and bracelets.  This look is made even better by the bold yet plain jewelry as it accents the bold snakeskin pattern well.

The choice of the lacey bra under the tube top gives a subtle oomph to the look.  This kind of large one-piece statement is hard to pull off, but Naomi does it well.  Another snakeskin inspired large statement making piece is that of Sienna Miller on the red carpet sporting a black and bronze metallic faux snakeskin suit with matching leggings instead of trousers.  This metallic faux snakeskin look is both eye catching and powerful, paired with a simple satin blue blouse, this look is classic.  Sienna shows that suits do not have to be boring, and snakeskin inspired suits do not have to be ugly cliché pieces.

Emmy Rossum pulls off a similar look with her all black metallic snakeskin inspired sleeveless dress that is made even more beautiful by her simple choice in makeup and shoes.  The simple dress design stands out, and makes Emmy look gorgeous without the fact that it is faux snakeskin being too overpowering.  Emmy’s look is easily obtained through using simple faux vinyl fabrics, and because the design is so simple almost anyone with sewing experience can achieve this look.

Rihanna's snake skin jacket

Lastly, Rihanna graces us with a faux snakeskin look that can be paired with just about any plain pair of pants or skirt.  Rihanna wears a tan snakeskin inspired ruffed sleeveless top paired with a pair of simple chic white legging pants.  This bold piece paired with the simplistic elements of the white bottoms makes the outfit stand out even more.  The use of less heavy faux snakeskin fabrics allows for the ruffles and details to move and flow.

These sexy celebrity snakeskin inspired looks are hard to distinguish from one another as faux or real snakeskin which is a compliment to the high quality of faux snakeskin seen in fashion houses today, however, it points out the sad fact that real snakeskin is still a coveted item.  More fashion designers should try and choose wonderfully embossed vinyl snakeskin fabrics over those that are real, because it not only saves animals, but it is also far less expensive.  When the same look can be achieved through using faux snakeskin, then why would someone not choose the faux snakeskin option?
