Sometimes when we see dresses on the catwalk they can seem like some kind of unrealistic eventuality. So when I spotted this Preen Fitted Python Panel Shift Dress from Preen By Thornton Bregazzi over at this week, I was pleased to find one of my favourite catwalk pieces had come to life. Yes, it's still £1,410, but if you're looking to invest this Spring / Summer 2013 and this beauty is within your budget, I wouldn't think twice.

Seen on the catwalk above at London Fashion Week after five years of showing in New York, amongst a collection of multi-shaded snake prints, this panelled all-leather sleek fit shift caught my eye. With colours spanning natural browns, purple mauves and a sport inspired flashes of white and yellow, this one piece featuring split wrap style skirt is a key wardrobe updater.
