Zagliani has taken a funky new direction with this high-energy shopper tote. Signature ladylike? You won’t find that here, but happily the house has not veered from exotics. Winged edges and a lacquered look give this bag oodles of flair – boredom will not be an issue.

Zagliani Shiny Python Top-Handle Tote: Just a Dream

Oh, NO. Not another knockout white bag to tug at my heartstrings! There is something so impossibly dreamy about a pristine white bag. The problem? Keeping it clean is the other impossible dream. I’ve been loving every minute of my summer-white bags; that is, until the end of every day, when I nervously inspect them … Continue reading Zagliani Shiny Python Top-Handle Tote: Just a Dream

Zagliani Shoulder Bag with Bow

I fell in love with this bag as soon as I laid eyes on it during Milan Fashion Week way back in February. Now that it is available, that same irrational exuberance is back. I say that only because this is an expensive bag but definitely a worthy of a lifelong investment. Sure the bow … Continue reading Zagliani Shoulder Bag with Bow

Zagliani Fall 2010

It was such a pleasure to meet Mauro Oritetti Carella, the creative director and head of Zagliani. A self proclaimed failed dermatologist, he began experimenting with precious exotic skins to give it the supple hand we are so used to in our exotics today.

Zagliani Large Crocodile One Handle Bag

I love Zagliani. The exotic skins they use are top notch and the construction is flawless. Total investment worthy. But this new One Handle bag has some fatal flaws, even though it is still gorgeous and has that same Zagliani look. The buckle is just for show, it sits under the zipper, which flips the … Continue reading Zagliani Large Crocodile One Handle Bag
