The Arnaud Pyvka Rarefied Hides photo shoot is a provocative display of Hen Long International premium gator skins.

Made from alligators and crocodiles, the dyed skins are featured strewn across naked models who are sprawled, belly up, against the floor. The intimate connection between sheaths of scales hiden on fleshy skin show audiences that one can be comfortable with wearing lizard skin -- in fact, you can look quite alluring in doing so. The variants displayed come in different colors, from bright yellow to deep red and a chestnut brown.

Heng Long International is a family run tannery based in Singapore that was founded after the ends of WW11. It now provides treated hides to high end fashion designers like Herm├Ęs, Louis Vuitton and Prada.
