Snake and leopard may rule fashion’s animal kingdom, but this season calls for broadening one’s menagerie. All sorts of critters are cropping up, whether swinging from pendants or perched on pins and rings, as exotic skins and prints slither and swoop deeper into the jungle of the imagination. They’re going ethnic, multimedia and biker chic. Sweatshirts are among edgy meets cutesy new styles beyond classic bags and shoes. Designers also showed clever use of enlarged and placement prints that will turn closets into Noah’s Arks. So the Year of the Snake really has been extended to the whole zodiac.
