The price of peace: $598

It's been used to fight the spread of nuclear weapons, end the war in Vietnam and save the whales. It's Peacekeychain been reviled as hippie drivel, communist propaganda and secret Satanic code. What the peace symbol has never been -- until now -- is a $598 fashion accessory.

''Oh, it's hot,'' says Natalie Abecassis of Silver Dagger, the Boca Raton designer that employs the peace symbol on everything from a $598 soft-leather hobo bag to a $200 velour hoodie. ``When we started using it, maybe eight months ago, we were almost the only ones. But now it's everywhere.''

No kidding. Once the province of tattered jeans and Day-Glo vans, the peace symbol is this holiday season's smartest style. It's not about television, but you can read my story about the vogueization of the peace symbol in the Miami Herald's holiday gift guide.
