TOEING THE LINE
A cobalt toe-cap makes a bold statement on the faux-snakeskin “Nora” ballet flat by Cri de Coeur, a vegan-friendly shoe label that uses such cruelty-free materials as low-VOC polyurethane, 100 percent recycled Ultrasuede (derived from post-industrial polyester), and reclaimed wooden soles.
Stella McCartney’s faux-python tote isn’t just good news for snakes; it also benefits communities in Nairobi, Kenya, where it’s made. Part of Ethical Fashion Africa, a United Nations-backed program that works with bold-faced designers such as Vivienne Westwood, the bag features recycled tent-canvas fabric in 100 percent cotton.
Available for a song, this vintage gold-tone bracelet features textured chains that gleam and writhe like reptilian forms.
Another affordable vintage find, these vermillion studs offer an embossed faux-snakeskin design that’s as timeless as it’s wearable.
