It’s official: Skin – and by that we mean snakeskin, both real and faux – is in. Just as Eve was lured by the serpent in the garden, tastemakers can’t resist the appeal of a serpentine print this season. Jessica Jensen’s python clutch, for instance, is a sexy take on a classic shape; Tiger of Sweden and Liu Jo offer novel ways to wear snakeskin prints, including a bold yellow blazer and slouchy, monochromatic silk trousers. To add a slinky twist to home decor, Williams-Sonoma’s snakeskin vessel is a s-s-s-s-simply stunning choice, while Kevin O’Brien’s velvet throw pillow is the only serpent you’d probably consider caressing. Go ahead, be tempted.
