It was officially declared spring just two days ago on the 20th of March. More scientifically known as the vernal equinox, it’s easily one of the prettiest times of the year when everything comes back to life again. Colours are no longer limited to a dreary white and grey; every colour on the spectrum comes out in full force, and they’re everywhere.
As with all seasons, your wardrobe will need an overhaul too. For those who shun wearing colours like a plague, don’t fret. From baby pink to a refreshing shade of turquoise, these vibrant, candy-coloured bags are the simplest way to perk up a springtime ensemble. Here are 5 of our favourites this season.
In a pretty colourway comprised of pastel pink and turquoise, Prada’s Ribbon bag is flirty and elegant at the same time. This Italian-made miniature bag sees a contrasting Plexiglas clasp with a leather loop at the centre over the smooth pink leather, and has just enough room for your essentials. Match it with your favourite LBD for best contrasting effect, or do as Prada’s SS17 show did and pair with sheer fabrics and pastel hues.
The Puzzle bag by Jonathan Anderson is unarguably one the house’s most revolutionary accessories so far. Precisely cut from panels of buttery-soft leather, the bag can be utilised in five different ways. Now, it gets a bold makeover with multi-hued facets, which will give the bag a whole lot more mileage in the style department.
The infamous Balenciaga market-inspired Bazar tote now comes in a more acceptable shoulder bag variation. Crafted from green, blue, white and red striped textured leather, the nifty carrier has a matching green strap that can be removed to become a chic clutch. Use this on casual afternoons out about town, or pair it with your favourite sun dress by the beach.
It’s never been easier to refresh your wardrobe than with this bag, which is fashioned in “Aqua”, a cool grey-green shade. The smooth leather tote is hand-embellished with pyramid studs that are now synonymous with the Italian marque, each galvanised to ensure it doesn’t tarnish over time. Roomy and spacious, this tote can fit a little more than your daily essentials, so it’s great for everyday use.
Equal parts edgy and feminine, Jimmy Choo’s Lockett Petite bag mixes a striking shade of hot pink with gunmetal hardware. It’s also extremely versatile; the chain strap makes it wearable crossbody-style or on the shoulder, be it full length or doubled up. Its sleek enamelled fastening also sees a push lock closure patented by the brand, with a unique mechanism that ensures your belongings are kept safely within all day.
