MILAN — Purses so precious that they are trimmed with genuine precious stones and shoes dripping in decoration have taken accessories to another level — artistically and in price.The jewel in the crown may be Valextra ’s collaboration with Jaeger-LeCoultre — putting a watch (detachable by two interior clips) and metal labels as a decorative and useful addition to a handbag. This idea of transformation and addition is very much in the Valextra sprit, where narrow chains offer the alternative of dangling a handbag from the shoulder with the help of metal labels. The message here is of a super lightness that makes the box-shaped zippered bags a treasure for a modern woman.Ironically, the invention of the purse/watch hybrid comes at a moment when a younger generation often abandons an everyday watch for the cellphone timekeeper. But with this version, there will be no scrabbling around interior pockets for the phone as the watch face is on the outside. Bulgari , as befits a jewelry house, has made its accessory on metal labels offering rich— in numbers and in quality. The collection of bags put together in the name of Isabella Rossellini, the house “mascot,” is beyond price, because the craftsmanship of the Italian artisans aims to take the purses up to the level of fine jewelry. For example, a pattern of ginko leaves takes 72 hours of handwork, while topaz, amethyst and jade are worked into a clasp. A high-end handbag at the couture level, therefore, includes the “basic” skin (read: alligator or python). Then there is the treatment of the leather, like intarsia weaving of mother of pearl with gold or snakeskin worked like the spine of a fish. Then comes the jeweled clasp or handle. The price — according to the materials used — is from €3,000, or about $3,900, but think ever upward.
