Year Of The Snake

2013 is the year of the Black Water Snake, according to Chinese  Zodiac. Year of Snake is meant for steady progress and attention to detail. In this arena, snakes are thought of as enigmatic, intuitive, introspective and refined. According to ancient Chinese wisdom, having a snake in your home is a positive omen and means that your family will not starve. However, others view a snake is a bad omen of things to come (all in perspective I suppose).

Each animal of the Chinese zodiac is associated with an element and the snake’s is fire but, in the larger Chinese astrological cycle, 2013 is also associated with water. So, specifically, this year is actually of the Year of the Black Water Snake, a combination of two elements (fire and water). This should make 2013 for an interesting year, huh?

In celebration of the snake, the fashion world is obsession with snake print and snake icons and I've been bitten by the fascination (pun so intended). I'm not a fan of the usage of real snake skin or any animal skin, fur, for that matter, but that doesn't mean we can't have fun playing with snake patterns.
Here's are a couple inspirational collages.

Let's Hang Out!

love how you wrote about the chinese zodiac and the meaning behind it:)
i'm not a huge fan of snake prints - i love little details, like a clutch or an accessoire piece but i don't think that i'm ever going to wear snake leather pants:)
