Heritage Auctions held its fourth semiannual luxury accessories auction today where such branded rarities as a Chanel bicycle (starting bid: $8,000) and a Louis Vuitton soccer ball (starting at $1,500) will be on the block.

"The world of accessories is different from what it was even five years ago," said Matt Rubinger, the auction house's luxury accessories director. "With the it-bag phenomenon, each season there was *a* bag that was *the* bag to have. The world has changed so much. I think a part of that is a little bit recession-related, that people didn't want to all have one famous bag. It became more about your personal style, and your look. And because of that there's a much wider range of pieces that people are looking for. And the highest-level shopper wants to be sort of unique."
