Post after post I have been going on about colour as the most important trend setter of the season. And one colour trend in particular is bright neon shades. Earlier this year I have already blogged about bright handbags but this time I have a new addition to the collection – DesignInverso handbags I discovered at Luisaviaroma.com. At £78 they have the designer feel without the high price tag. What I absolutely love about the range is that they are a clever imitation of infamous Chanel shape – quilted and with a long chain. Where is the clever, you might ask? Well the handbags are PVC and not leather plus the colours are world apart from the usual black and red Chanel flap bags we see everywhere. And that is what makes them fashionable – playful and fun interpretation of one of the most classic bags making it not just practical but totally trendy. So pick your favourite shade and wear it with, well, more or less anything for the fashionably required splash of colour!

The fashion world this seasons swears by pink handbags: both designer and high street items in the girliest of colours have flooded the market. I could not help but wonder why? (Just had to use Carrie Bradshaw’s favourite quote, excitement for Sex and the City prequel Carrie’s Diaries is in the air.) Maybe they are just giving consumers exactly what they want – a colourful and hopeful break from daily worries that have been brought on us with this long-lasting economic crisis. Maybe it is simply an outcome of different shades of pink proving suitable for two of the biggest seasonal trends: pastel and bright colours. Maybe 2012 is all about love (let’s just assume pink is the colour that represents love) since the rumored apocalypse is looming and we need to find shelter in the most meaningful of feelings. Or maybe we should stop reading into it and enjoy our childhood’s favourite colour making a big comeback to a fashion scene.

Usually I prefer my shoes and my bags to be the most expensive part of the outfit. But sometimes there are those exceptional pieces that make you forget the rules. This is it. Miso Golden Zip boot by Republic which is just £34.99 but it definitely looks more pricey!
First of all it is the colour that makes it stand out – great closet update that will push you into Autumn Winter 11. And then it is the heel – on the point with all the shoes that walked the catwalk! Perfect.
I can not think of a better way to fashionably spend £35. And then again some of the other shoes on http://www.republic.co.uk look so yummy…
