Spring 2011 is all about orange, and if you don’t like orange, well…that sucks for you, I guess. But keep an open mind! Pinkish, coral-y collars like that of the Marc by Marc Jacobs Natasha Crossbody will pull you in with their considerable charms in no time, if only you’ll give them the opportunity.

The Natasha is an easy bag to love in any color; it’s made of great leather and generously proportioned for its price, plus it’s the kind of purse that proves itself useful over and over again, in a variety of situations. But this particular shade of melon not only reminds us that spring and warm weather are coming, but also that being on-trend can often be great fun as well as great fashion. I’m not even a great lover of orange, but bags like this one make me want to convert. Just in the nick of time, too. Buy through Net-a-Porter for $350.

    Beautiful color, and I would love to own a bag in this shade. However, this bag is not large enough. Marc Jacobs always does hanbag color well, and this is no exception.

    I have a burnt orange bag on my desk right now that I’ve been using for a week – I love orange in all it’s variations. This is a great color and now I want this flipping bag too. Sigh. My budget hates me right now. (iPad)

    Okay, now this is a bag would would buy in a heartbeat. But I would first want to see it in person, just to make sure that the colour is really what it looks like on the screen. These sorts of shades never quite photograph well. (ipad)
