An exotic journey calls for equally wild gear. These bags have their own pride of place.

Leather straps and chrome studs reinvent that classic South American souvenir. Vida, 646/645-3964, $250.

Embroidered folkloric motifs in bright, joyful colors are just as effective in small doses. Moyna,, $75.

Best buy: Geometric snakeskin set against a mother-of-pearl-studded wood frame reads as both avant-garde and authentic. Dan W, 201/568-2900, $150.

An earthy ombré print gains crispness when trimmed with glossy black accents. Pietro Alessandro, 212/691-6516, $230.

With only a single dramatic tassel adorning this messenger-style bag, the rich burnt-umber leather virtually glows. Alla Leather Art,, $329.

To free up your hands for, say, an impromptu two-step, just slip the gold vermeil bangle onto your wrist. Rebecca Norman,, $250.

Turquoise jewelry is so obvious. Vivid aquamarine washed leather delivers high-impact (and functional) arm candy. Carla Mancini, 212/691-6516, $545.
