Review by Lucas Pantoja
There’s a certain appeal about leather, that when it’s brand new it comes smelling fresh and paired with a glisten; then after it’s used for a particular amount of time it becomes worn and detailed as it encompasses the travelers memories and experiences.
While some people prefer leather with a rustic quality, others may prefer their leather looking pristine. But what the artisans at Orciani have succeeded in doing is finding that right balance between aged and new products, be it in the leather itself, the design, or the embellishing of their products; and it’s all done at a price far more affordable than that of the esteemed luxury brands we all love so dearly.
In their latest Fall/Winter collection, Orciani presents a collection of belts and bags all with their own unique personalities, drawing in elements of nature and a sense of maturity. Their highlighted models feature the Dalia bucket bag, Beth saddle bag, Janine tote bag, and the triple-formed-rucksack, hobo, and saddle bag Alexa. The materials range from: ‘LOTUS’ and laminated calfskin, ‘LONG BEACH’ nubuck, laser-cut leather, as well as eco-fur.
Colors come all primarily modest and earthy including: fir tree green, soft burgundy, and varying shades of brown and tan. As for the belts, they exuberate a sort of western-antiqueness, many of which are decorated finely with a bit of crystal embellishments and or sculpture-like buckles portraying symbols of nature.
For those ladies looking to flash some accessories at the rodeo, buffalo-style; then this collection from Orciani may just be what you’ve been needing.
