Snake Charmers

Wrap yourself up in python.


Python continues to slither along in fashion, this season in myriad creations and a host of ultraluxe textures. With its stylish and slouchy triangle tote, Cole Haan mixes practicality with extravagance. Made from the supplest of skins, the carryall will add a bit of bite to any wardrobe. For an edgy-meets-pretty vibe, VBH weaves a girly floral motif into a dazzling metallic clutch. Bottega Veneta aims for seduction of a different sort with a coil-like, oxidized silver bangle. And even Christian Louboutin has temporarily forsaken alligator and crocodile skins for something a little more sinful: Stacked atop a towering heel, his rose-colored pump, inspired by the works of artist Allen Jones, was just made to take a walk on the wild side.
