    I am surprised that I didn't find a thread on this while searching, because it was all over the place on the F/W 0506 runways. Mainly in accesoiries, like bags, hats and shoes. A luxe animal skin that can look very good!

    Knee-booted and capped at Christian Dior

    i love it (in the sense of 'it looks good.')!
    but personally, i wouldn't wear it. firstly, because i make a difference between 'ordinary' leather and reptilian leather. and secondly, because fake leather (which would be the alternative) looks tacky.

    The boots are very interesting, thanks a lot for the great thread Mr Dale. :flower:

    I am all for this trends, especially the boots, as long as it's faux reptilian leather. Although I would never wear this trend myself, it looks way too "bourgeois". ^_^

    I think reptilian leather can look quite good as long as it's done subtlely. If there's too much of it in your outfit it can look a bit tacky.

    love this look, but I think it can only be pulled off in accessories. Those knee high suede and reptillian leather gucci boots r amazing!

    I have definately seen a lot of this in stores but unfortunately it's not always done well, a lot of it look cheap

    But I love the trend when it's done right thanks for the thread!
