Anyone who’s stepped foot inside the accessories section of a department store in the past few months has probably realized that bright colors are a certifiable Thing (with a capital “T”) for Summer 2012, and I have to say, ladies and gents, I’m not mad at it. We talked about yellow bags quite a bit yesterday, and while I still find myself on that bold, sunshine-y bandwagon a full 24 hours later, I felt as though a bright bag in a different shade deserved a spotlight all its own: the Reed Krakoff Gym Bag in a hue that the company calls “zephyr green.” It sure feels like a breath of fresh air to me.

I was a little suspicious of the Gym Bag when Krakoff first introduced, not least of all because the name evokes the mental image of sweat-stained nylon duffels. This bag, though, is far from it, and not something I’d ever recommend bringing into the women’s locker room. Instead, it’s a perfectly casual option that puts its emphasis on color and leather instead of external design elements, and the results are fantastic. At a little over 10 inches wide, it’s a great option to sling cross-body for a weekend brunch or walk through the park, and really, who wants to do anything else during the summer? Plus, with a color this saturated and radiant, all you need to wear are some denim cutoffs and a white T – the bag will do the rest. Buy through Neiman Marcus for $990.

    I love it. I bought a Prada green bag (the same green) in 2008 and I thought I would have used it just for one season, and look now we are in 2012 and the green ist still a great color to use. Can’t believe it. And surprise surprise it’s an easy color to wear.

    I keep seeing this bag lately and the color is TDF but I wonder if I can pull it off?  I’m not sure if I’m one of those brave women who can do so with confidence!
