Spring 2010 accessories are channeling elements of the exotic, meaning you’ll find yourself investing in something snaky like python or crocodile (embossed please, as I hate to think of the innocent snakes killed for the sake of fashion).

The Spring 2010 runways had designers like Bottega Veneta, Gucci, and Chloé sending models down the catwalk toting venomous handbags in a range of styles from slouchy shoulder bags to large structured satchels. Click through the gallery to see what will be on your Spring 2010 accessories list.
