The more you have, the more you want: when it comes to bags, women are insatiable and they would go nuts to get their hands on the latest design from their favorite designer. To be sure, there is nothing wrong with that, given the extraordinary amount of choice now on the market, especially during the Christmas period, when shops and boutiques are beautifully decorated with sparking lights and decorations to grab your attention and lure you in to savor the latest available trends.
With Christmas coming and with all those presents – more or less satisfying – how can you not fantasize about the perfect accessory we would like to find wrapped up under the Christmas tree?
There is no doubt that in Italy, and in many other European countries, the expression “crocodile bag” is used as a general term: it is used whether the bag is made of genuine crocodile, alligator, or even caiman, which differs so much from the first two kinds of leather. The issue becomes even more complicated when the expression “crocodile bag” is used to indicate an item made with some kind of leather that has nothing to do with genuine crocodile, but it is just embossed leather.
We will discuss the distinction between genuine leather and embossed leather in one of our next articles, together with a series of useful tips and advice on how to avoid being disappointed in your choice!
In this article we would like to focus our attention on the differences between a genuine crocodile leather item and a genuine alligator one.
GOLD – One of the essential colors this winter.
The reason? It’s a strong color, able to attract attention and accentuate the individuality of the person wearing it. Also, it is a timeless color, rich in meaning, and in honors that history has awarded: the color of wedding ring, of the Pharaohs, and of the prosperous periods of history, rightfully called the golden ages.
This shade is inspired from the royal ornaments of baroque churches, to reflections of the sun in mirrored waters, to ancient Roman amulets. It also represents something for every one of us: the story of our personal successes, joys, and powerful moments that could be symbolized through a charismatic and radiant color.
A gold purse serves as a metaphor for energy and the solar aspects of your being, highlighting your independent character and demonstrating the courage to wear an accessory of strong and original color. It will be, above all, a great way of battling the greys of the cold and rainy winter days! Continue reading
You know, a high qualitative bag, handmade with prestigious hardware and well finished in detail by experienced Italian craftsmen who daily transform their job into a source of pride for the Made in Italy, has its own economic value that, although justified by manufacturing costs, is often unattainable.
We can’t do anything but close our eyes and fantasize on our dream bag, so perfect and beautiful, but also so inaccessible, a mirage for our finances.
We, sometimes, look forward the approach of the usual seasonal sales to buy the bag at a discounted price but then, for one reason or another, we are never able to reach the boutique in time for purchasing our “glamorous bag”, because someone else has already preceded us managing to take the bag home, maybe gaining the trust of the shop assistant.

Spring is here at last and, with it, all that cold winter greyness and melancholy is swept away to welcome a period of rebirth, where new energy imbues everything, both outside and in, expressing complete harmony and purity.
Nature comes back to life, displaying its multitude of colours and scents, which intoxicate our days and fill us with positivity and joy, inspiring us to go out and live every moment of our life to the full.
This concept of “a return to nature and of rebirth” has deeply influenced Gleni’s new men’s/women’s Spring Summer 2014 accessories collection; a collection that we can define as totally inspired by Nature and its infinite shades of colour. Continue reading

A bag that is able to give personality and importance to the woman who’ll decide to wear it is the perfect demonstration that it’s not the extra accessories or the frivolous embellishments that determine the trendy and fashion look of a person. What makes the difference in this item is the leather, turning the bag into the best investment of your life.
There are so many reasons why a woman should consider a bag important and irreplaceable: it may be for its shape and design – simple or more showy, minimal but well-refined, classic or super-accessorized – but also for the details that enrich its external aspect; for its ability to be appropriate and perfect for every occasion; or, for the most romantic ones in particular, because it evokes lovely memories since the moment of the purchase or because it is bonded to pleasant situations you experienced while wearing it.
