Snake Tamer

by cecylia on March 6, 2013

I experienced a light-bulb moment a few weeks ago. It all started when a friendly zoo snake turned itself into a scarf around my neck. As I froze in fear, a question came to mind: is snake-print still in this season? Sure, last year we were all pretty proud to strut around in snake skin and python hide but is this all going to end soon? Or has it already ended and I’m just a naive Eve? What do you think?

Since antiquity, people have been fascinated by the snake’s mesmerizing skin, commanding presence and incredible regenerating ability. Especially the Chinese, who have collectively, dedicated every 12 years to the snake. Designers such as Proenza Schouler, Preen and Emma Cook also didn’t let the python slip from their latest collections, featuring luxe re-duxes of the exotic skin. But ultimately it is God the serpent must thank for its charming good looks and captivating allure. Removing the snake’s legs helped garner sympathy votes, it is the first animal to receive so much press, plus God was generous with gifting the snake its skin-renewal ability. So let this year be a year of restoration and revival “The old has gone, the new is here!” (2Cor 5:17). Start afresh with some snake print!

几个星期前我突然有个顿悟。还记得有条友好的动物园蛇将自己绕在我脖子上吗?当我愣住的那一刻,这个问题到了我的脑海中:蛇皮纹还时髦吗?去年蛇皮非常流行了,它是不是快要或已经结束了?因为任何浪头都得下潮。你们觉得呢?

自古以来,人们一直迷恋着蛇迷人的皮和令人惊讶的再生能力。尤其中国人,他们那么爱蛇,他们每十二年都来纪念蛇。最近世界各地的设计师例如Proenza Schouler, Preen 和Emma Cook都在他们最新的服装系列里包括了蛇皮纹。但其实蛇最应该感谢的是神。是神将他造的那么有魅力。虽然祂夺去了蛇的腿,祂帮助蛇拿到同情票,更何况蛇的再生能力也是神赐给他的礼物。同样,神给我们每一天都是‘复兴’的机会。当你穿着蛇皮纹的时候,记住“旧事以过,都变成新的了。” (林下5:17)

Oh really like the colours in this outfit – that red belt really pops, such a lovely piece! :)

I think snakeprint is becoming a classic, just like leopard print :)
