Item of the Day: Zangliani

zaglianiFor those of us who cannot always afford a luxurygoods splurge, there’s nothing like a jaunt though the main accessories floor of a luxury purveyor.

On just such a recent trip, we spied a truly sumptuous bag at Barneys. It was Zagliani’s crocodile small Tomodachi bowling bag.

The soft matte crocodile bag had an interesting degrade finish—as if its edges had been singed. Zagliani specially treats its crocodile to have a soft, buttery hand. In fact, the bag can be rolled up and stored in your suitcase (or inside another larger croco bag). It has a two-way top zip, rolled self top handles and two organizational pockets.

As expected the bag is made in Italy, home to some of the leading luxurygoods brands.

While well out of our price range, one has to wonder how many months to go without paying the mortgage…
