TROMPE L’OEIL

Stella McCartney’s scaly blouse only looks like snake leather. It’s actually made from 100 percent cotton jersey, which the vegan designer cut to create a wide boatneck, draped cap sleeves, and ruching at the hip that (kinda, sorta) resembles molting skin.

ORIGINAL SIN

Made from repurposed truck tarpaulins, Freitag’s “Hind” shopper comprises 648 pieces, laboriously hand-knotted to scaly effect. Another fun fact? The bag gets its name from Ella Cora Hind, western Canada’s first female journalist—a tangential nod, according to the Swiss manufacturer, to the serpent that made an apple-chomper out of Eve.
