didn't notice that about Christopher Kane's
great to use something naturally stiff, crackled and shiny and put it on something more fluid and soft..smooth..
the others can feel a tad extreme

^^ i know some of the other pieces in the collection i didnt post .. from the pictures you cant really tell its snake skin but if you see it in person there is a thing piping of it around the edges of rara skirts and soft floaty dresses .. really beautifull and a totally different take .. i didnt post the pictures because to look at them you would enver guess what it was

I love this trend too and especially love how it is being used differently this season. It gives a whole fresh take on snakeskin

Quick Fad
Snakeskin is something that re-emerges every 8-10 years - AND since I clearly remember the fad in 1999 I'm not feeling it this time

Trust me, this will soon pass...

This is like the late 90s again...I remember snake skin everything!

I think Hermes used Croc skin not snake skin...and I think a few other things are croc skin...
