Animal print is everywhere this season, and Emily Ratajkowski's snakeskin bag is right on trend. On Fri., the model attended TheWrap's annual Power Women Summit in Los Angeles wearing a hot-off-the-runway look from Oscar de la Renta's Spring 2019 collection. It's the handbag she carried with it, though, that's sure to be your new favorite winter accessory.
Ratajkowski posed for photos at the InterContinental hotel with a mini tote made of python snakeskin. The square bag is lined with suede, featuring a metallic taupe finish and dainty gold chain handles. It was designed by Dennis Hopper's daughter, Marin Hopper, for her luxury brand, Hayward. The New York-based accessory brand offers modern takes on timeless classics. From pink leopard-print bucket bags to jacquard clutches reminiscent of your grandmother's sofa, Hopper's collection merges old-Hollywood glamour with avant-garde trends.
The snakeskin bag that EmRata chose is the most neutral staple for your winter wardrobe. There's hardly a color that can't be paired with this animal-print accessory. Even when worn with other bold patterns like ones that adorn Ratajkowski's skirt, a neutral snakeskin still works. The model's mix of colors, textures, and prints is proof that, whether worn on a bag or a boot, this print is the best way to elevate all of your ensembles this season.
Get The Look
Model friend Bella Hadid debuted EmRata's outfit on the runway during New York Fashion Week. The fringe-lined skirt is actually a scarf that was also worn as a dress on the runway. The asymmetrical white blouse — long-sleeved on one side and sleeveless on the other — that both Hadid and Ratajkowski paired with the makeshift skirt helped balance out its bold autumnal palette. The model accessorized the ensemble with pearl-drop earrings, strappy metallic sandal heels, and the stunning bag.
Designers like Fendi, Roberto Cavalli, and Gucci launched the trend on the catwalks of Fall/Winter New York Fashion Week, which saw snake-print trousers, button-up blouses, and boots in every hue. Ratajkowski is obviously a fan, opting for a pair of python-print Yeezy boots a week before her recent bag moment.
