DaVinci’s Handbag

The hottest new designer of the year 2012 has been dead for nearly 500 years. At left you will see a leather  “Pretiosa” hand bag produced by the fashion house of Gheradini and designed by Leonardo DaVinci. The limited edition handbag is based on sketches found in DaVinci’s Codex Atlanticus. Gheradini has produced a limited run of 99 DaVinci “Pretiosa” bags. They are scheduled to be available at Gherardini boutiques starting in March and will surely sell out in no time.
