designer lounge: snakeskin

This season animal print, particularly snake print, will be making it’s presence felt on the high street.

Designers such as Henry Holland sported his SS12 ‘House of Holland’ collection at LFW and it was clear to see the excessive use of snakeskin print. Needless to say, it looked fabulous.

Henry’s collection was full of sugary colour palette pieces with a hint of snakeskin thrown into the mix. The delicate look of the silks and soft colouring was contrasted with the bold leather and snakeskin print. When it comes to wearing snakeskin, try adding a little neon colouring to ensure you stand out from the crowd.

Elsewhere leopard print will also be making another appearance this season. This print in particular can look fabulous if it’s done properly, get it wrong and you will never live it down. If you are brave enough to attempt this look, why not add a touch of leather, which will create a sultry sexy style.

Topshop recently showcased their Dalmatian print Unique collection at an A/W11 catwalk, which was interesting! The designers, inspired by 1930’s America, went all out- even giving the models dog like hairstyles! The monochromatic Dalmatian pieces were just gorgeous and designers have reassured fashion addicts that this collection will soon translate into store.
Karen Bonser, head of design at Topshop, admitted that the collection was inspired by dogs and particularly the film 101 Dalmatians-amazing!
That’s what I love about fashion, it’s always evolving and it’s so wonderfully weird and unpredictable!
