Review by Lucas Pantoja
Whether fashion is an interest one subscribes to or not, it can be said that our leather goods are indeed our companions. Wallets, bags, belts, card-holders etc. — these items tend to travel with us frequently and often times are used till they either become lifeless, or undergo repair resulting in their spending even more time following us around.
It was with this philosophy in mind that the Italian leather specialists at Orciani crafted their latest Fall/Winter 2019 collection. Directing attention to the eclectic and worldly taste of the Orciani man, the collection mixed different aged qualities to the various belts and bags — ultimately allowing for the products to be styled to fit various personal images of their refined clients.
Hints of sportiness could be seen in the shape of the holdall bags, but the sophistication of their construction allowed for them to be interpreted as a functional bag for work, daily use, or even as a gym bag to those brave enough.
Belts featured were all quite different from one another and each full of its own character. Constructed with different patterns and effects etched into the leathers, then topped off by their own unique buckles, each belt would surely suit a different man.
The studs on a dark brown belt complimented its raw design and a tobacco washed cintura with stitched lining and glossy silver buckle would suit the classy type. While the black leather strap belt with a wavy serpent on the front was designed for those who’d prefer an edgy flair to their look.
