The latest ready-to-wear collection from menswear designer James Long features snakeskin-clad models. Models sport serpentine ensembles, patterned knits, graphic tees and other exotic prints and textiles. Long's trademark knits are paired with fierce reptile patterns and equally dangerous accessories.

Models wear stunning separates paired with reptilian sandals, snakeskin-made masculine carry-alls and stunner shades. The captivating collection successfully mixes a neutral palette of rich prints and textures. The ready-to-wear presentation is both spontaneous and sophisticated, exuding an eclectic world-traveler vibe.

Memorable pieces such as reptile-clad cardigans, tailored tweed trousers and cuffed shorts as well as cream-colored knits combine desirable aesthetic details with comfort. Lightweight textiles are paired with structured silhouettes while bold neutrals contrast against more metallic and shimmery finishes. Moreover an excess of reptilian patterns and prints adds an undeniable air of luxury.
