Did you know that the belt is an item with very ancient origins? The first evidence dates back to the Bronze Age. An accessory with such a long history has necessarily taken on many rich, different meanings, besides the most practical one: to keep the pants steady and firm!
In the time of ancient Rome, the belt also had a symbolic value, enough to represent a “status symbol” able to demonstrate the role and weight in society, while starting from the Renaissance it enters the female fashion becoming an ornament and a symbol of elegance and refinement.
Today the belt is an essential accessory in the male wardrobe, a little less in the female one. Why? Very often this practical ornament is considered unnecessary, inconvenient or difficult to match.
Actually, the belt is a very simple and complete accessory, able to radically transform an outfit and change your figure. For this reason, never underestimate its usefulness!
In this article, we will give you 8 reasons to wear a belt. We are sure that at the end of this reading you won’t be able to resist buying a new one!

CONTINUING THE JOURNEY TO THE REDISCOVERY OF NATURE
As previously announced by the color of the year 2017, Greenery, this spring will be defined by colors originating from the world of nature.
Here, the proposals of the Pantone Color Institute:
Like Greenery, this palette is strongly inspired by nature and unequivocally evokes positive feelings of change and rebirth. It is composed of shades that combine a mix of vitality, relaxation and desire for a deep connection with the nature surrounding us.
Look around you, are these not the colors which characterize our world in the spring? Are they not the colors which trigger in us positive emotions and instill a deep sense of calm yet also vitality? Are they not the green of the forest and the blue of the sea which come to mind when we feel the need to disconnect from everyday routine and indulge for a while in the respite of nature?

The annual press release regarding the PANTONE color of the year has finally been issued: the color of the year 2017 will be GREENERY, a color that draws all the vitality and freshness of nature.
The Color Institute itself defines Greenery as “a fresh and zesty yellow-green shade that evokes the first days of spring when nature’s greens revive, restore and renew” and in our opinion it is one of the more evocative descriptions of all time.
Greenery is a lively and vibrant color which recalls the image of the first leaves on the trees, the first stems of the flowers and the smell of a morning meadow, immediately sparking vitality and high spirits in those who observe. Continue reading
Trends are ruling the world. Fashion is changing in every season, and every season has its own ‘it’ objects. What about a luxury bag? Do you buy just to accommodate yourself to the new fashion trends or because it is a piece that you will wear for many seasons unlike all the ever-shifting clothes?
Classical luxury handbags will certainly be the main pieces of your closet for many seasons. What makes it so special? Why do we even buy second hand vintage handbags? What makes a bag special is; the combination of unique design, the quality, the craftsmanship and the leather. A leather bag, if a well, it is made from exotic leather, will never look old fashioned for many years. That is why your daughter is using your crocodile bag, that you were wearing in your 30’s. And that is why you spend your money to invest that bag.
More than ever, brands are using exotic leathers as a symbol of luxury, distinction and high-end quality. Of course there are people who does not prefer exotic leather, because of their old fashioned designs. In this moment, Italian design steps in. Italian design which is respected by the world, treats the exotic leather like a jewel, and exotic leather gains modernity and glory that it deserves. That is how you get the perfect luxury handbag that you can use for years. Continue reading
When we buy an item Made in Italy we do not purchase just a product. We purchase a value made of quality, elegance, research. There are many sectors which claim the quality Made in Italy, from gastronomy to automobiles, from furnishings to fashion. The luxury of Made in Italy is forever known and renowned not only nationally, but also internationally, where it is forced to contend with Asian competitors that rely on low prices to the detriment of quality. A considerable difference in the way of conceiving a product, given that the history and tradition of Italian luxury is based on genius and creativity, on beauty and innovation, on refinement and elegance, on quality and originality.
One of the industries in which Made in Italy most expresses itself is fashion, as exalted on all runways national and international. It is of fashion that we want to speak, pausing and analyzing a product forever admired and celebrated in this field: Italian handbags. More and more international celebrities choose Italian bags to complete their look, testimony to the fact that this accessory produced in Italy has bewitched by now also foreign markets.
