OPUS TO SNAKESKIN

My fondness for animal print as depicted in my previous post, continues today with a take on snakeskin. There are numerous ways to style this jacket from Jenni Button, but having regard to the glitz and glamour of the textile and particular print, I prefer wearing it with something more demure. The jacket is rather striking, and with the print being rather loud, I would be reluctant to team it with anything that detracts from the beauty of it's design and print. My elegant friend Hanle complemented the snakeskin look with her beautiful soft chiffon top, worn with very flattering skinnies and ankle cuff shoes.
 
Jenni Button is a South African designer and most sought after.  She is the creator of Jenni Button (Pty) Ltd in South Africa.  They have stand alone stores in a number of the top end shopping centres. I understand that Jenni Button International was recently introduced as her export label.  The general look is not exactly "everyday day",  but rather cutting edge glamour with distinct elegance and style! Instead of being met by over zealous sales assistants, the stores have stylists who assist in creating a particular ensemble and who advises in a very subtle way. I was met by the stylish Nadia, holding the snake skin jacket below, a stylist at the Canal Walk store in Cape Town. Nadia gladly assisted me in styling my outfits and finding the right size......
