Luxury Leisure: World class Italian luxury goods firm Bottega Veneta has come out with an elegant, extravagant set of alligator luggage for the private jet set. Designed to make the journey itself a pleasure regardless of the final destination, the luxurious collection consists of six matching pieces harking back to the days when aristocrats required a full retinue of servants merely to look after all their luggage. The beautiful collection is covered in a superfine and distinctive noce fume rich brown soft-finished alligator skin.

The six luxe pieces include a large hard-sided suitcase, $47,500; a medium suitcase, $42,000; a small suitcase, $38,000; a briefcase, $23,500; a Torta duffle, $30,000; and a beauty case, $23,500. All feature burnished metal hardware with reinforced corners and locking mechanisms. The entire set comes to $157,000. Creative director Tomas Maier, who was installed following Gucci's acquisition of Bottega Veneta in 2001, has recently expanded the company's offerings beyond the traditional leather goods and apparel, to elegant effect.
