After the reign of the wild cats— leopards, cheetahs, and tigers— in the past couple of years, now comes the year of snake prints in fashion.
Spotted on the Spring 2013 collections of several international fashion giants, like Gucci, Lanvin, and Proenza Schouler, the snakeskin trend is expected to pick up real quick, especially since the season coincides with the Year of the Water Snake in Chinese astrology.
In old pagan and oriental traditions, snakes are considered bearers of good luck and good fortune.

This is perhaps the reason why some people try to make lucky charms out of molted snakeskin, keeping them inside their wallets or money cases to attract wealth.
