Inspired by the “classic men’s cabin bag,” Reed Krakoff has crafted his famed Gym bag in cheerfully bright yellow for his Pre-Spring 2012 collection. Actually, the color of this bag is such a pick-me-up, I’m humming “Bright Sunshiny Day” as I write this.
Nope, there is nothing like a cheeky citrus bag to jumpstart your spring wardrobe. As a matter of fact, yellow is the easiest color in the whole spectrum to see (even those who are colorblind can still usually spot it), so you know it will make you stand out in the crowd.
Set it in pebble napa leather and put it in the Gym bag style, which has always been my favorite tote from Reed – a metro look for both boy and girl snobs – and we have a winner. A great, sleek size (just some low-key black nickel hardware, so the hue is adequately emphasized), and as it is with all of Reed’s satchels, it’s lightweight and oh-so-easy to use on a daily basis. Available exclusively at Reed Krakoff for $890, for pre-order (to be shipped in early-November).
Pair with: No color wars here. Go for seamless high-shine and total walk-ability with Christian Louboutin’s Dufferin metallic loafers. Anthracite with black embellishments will compliment the black accents of your tote, and menswear inspiration speaks to the boyish gym-bag style. On Net-a-Porter for $995.
