NEW YORK — Not since 1981, when Nastassja Kinski curled up with that python for Richard Avedon, has sporting a snake looked quite so good. The current serpentine revival started with Tom Ford’s celebrated Gucci snake dress, cuff and shoes for spring, and now the motif is playing an important role in the accessories market. It’s turning up in bags, belts, sandals and jewelry.
