The Spring Summer Fashion Week has finally come to a close. Come next year, it seems that bag colours are going bright and bold. Perhaps it’s time to whisper a temporary farewell to your usual black or brown handbags and start investing in yellow, orange, green or other vivid shades!

It is undeniable that yellow is coming in a big way next Spring Summer. Many designers have used this colour for their upcoming collections and it does complement well with a good number of other shades – such as pastels, khaki, and bold hues for the colour block trend or even the basic black or white.

In terms of versatility, I love the different green bags showcased by this season. There are different interpretations for different personalities. For example, you could pursue a cheerful and bright shade of olive green as seen at Fendi or Bottega Veneta, or stick to a simple and sophisticated deep green ala Celine. Mulberry’s green printed bags looks adventurous too!

The blue trend is not new and it seems more of an essential in Spring Summer collections. Last year, we already witnessed several blue arm candies for 2011. This year, the Blue Bag continues to reign a section of the runway. You could go for bold electric blue, or a more subdued bluish gray that is similar to Louis Vuitton’s rendition.

I don’t think I have ever owned a pink bag because it seems too girlish for me. But hey, that pink leather clutch from Jil Sander looks rather appealing, don’t you think?

Orange leather feels more subdued on the bags as it appears to be an in-between of brown and tan. If you are not too sure about bright yellow or electric blue, perhaps orange could be a good bet! This reminds me… I have an orange leather bag stashed in the deep abyss of my wardrobe that needs to see the light of day next Summer!

2012 年春夏季时装周终于落幕。面对各家品牌新出炉的设计,是否感到眼花潦乱?仔细观察明年春夏包包,不难发现,大家都倾向鲜艳夺目的色彩。当中,黄色包包预料会大受欢迎。Louis Vuitton, Mulberry, Bottega 等品牌 都推出黄色皮包。而且,黄色其实还挺白搭的-可以衬托粉色系,卡其色,黑白色等。除此之外,绿色、 蓝色、粉色以及橙色都是明年可能受宠的包包颜色。我在几年前购买了一个Kate Spade的橙色小皮包。看来明年夏季,这皮包将是我常携带的包包之一!
