The Union of the Snake

Missoni Fall 2011, Prada Fall 2011, Chloe Fall 2011

Python had a strong showing on fall runways, from leather coats, bags and boots, to printed silk separates.  The animal print is a natural progression from last fall's prolific leopard prints, and feels fresh when drenched in color.

I wasn't crazy about the trend when it appeared on Burberry Prorsum's spring runway, but other designers' interpretations for fall have me warming up to the print.  The key to wearing python tastfully is to stay fairly covered up, a la the demure floor length coats at Missoni and '50s style skirts at Chloe. 

I'm not quite ready to take the plunge and wear head to toe snakeskin, but I'm finding it hard to resist some of these colorful python accessories.

Botkier crossbody bag ($375), Topshop envelope clutch ($50), and Botkier bag ($210)

Topshop wedges ($150), Topshop socks ($8), Tory Burch clutch ($182.50), Rachel Rachel Roy belt ($21)

These python print items would look very on-trend paired with a pop of color.

Rebecca Taylor skirt ($245), Whistles dress ($242), and Equipment blouse ($228)
