If you're looking for the newest look in retro fashion, you can't get much more retro than with the Leonardo Da Vinci handbag, which was originally designed around 1497.

Da Vince was not only an inventor, artist, musician, writer and scientist, but a fashion designer as well! Sadly Da Vinci never got the chance to get his fashion career off the ground, but luckily Italian design company Gherardini has done it for him. Designer Carla Braccialini has made Da Vinci's handbag come to life by creating a side satchel based on Leonardo Da Vinci's ancient sketches.

The handbag is named 'Pretiosa,' which translates to precious. With only 99 handbags created by Gherardini, a Da Vinci handbag is extremly hard to come across, making it "pretiosa" indeed. Stats for Iconic Inventor Purses Trending: Older & Buzzing
