Fashion lovers around the world let out a figurative squeal last March when news broke that Matthew Williamson was designing a line of accessories for Bulgari.

The only details at the time were really just the release-date target of Milan Fashion Week in September. Well, StyleList has learned a little more via a statement from Bulgari.

The hobo bags and clutches will be available in three styles in a faceted, gemstone-shaped embossed leather -- and even the bag's silhouettes are angular and jewel-shaped. They'll be offered in a palette of "rubellite pink, emerald green, and sapphire blue."

While price points have yet to be released on the leather accessories, one can imagine they'll be in the luxury range. Fortunately, that's not all Williamson has to offer. For those with a smaller budget, the color-addicted designer supplemented the leather line with a collection of coated canvas totes.

Each "features three kaleidoscope prints whose emerald palm, sapphire galaxy, and crystal butterfly original patterns are inspired by some of Bulgari's most iconic jewels" and are trimmed with fluorescent patent leather.

The prints were also used for a small range of hexagonal minaudière, a small hard-cased box for evening essentials that Europeans adore but seems less essential to American women.

Following its September debut, the collection will be available at Bulgari boutiques in January.
