Crocodile Dandy

When Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana set out to distance themselves from other mass-marketed designer brands, they decided to offer an exclusive range of limited-edition and custom-made products that would appeal more to connoisseurs than status seekers. This winter they continue that mandate with the launch of a new collection of one-of-a-kind weekend bags produced entirely out of crocodile and limited to 20 worldwide.  In the U.S. the company is offering two custom-made variations of the bags?a beige crocodile weekender in the shape of a vintage bowling case, $53,995, and a two-tone brown boxy overnighter, $45,695.  To further differentiate the bags from other exotic-skinned accessories in the duo’s ready-made repertoire, each piece comes with a metal engraved plaque inside identifying you as its owner. (877.70.DGUSA, www.dolcegabbana.it)
