Hearts, grapefruits, cotton candy, Breast Cancer Awareness Month (October), and cute little bunny noses. These are the things that come to mind when I think of the color pink. It is probably one of the cheeriest colors I can think of. Right now, it would seem that a lot of handbag designers agree with this sentiment. Wait, I thought the hot color for Spring 2012 was yellow? Don’t worry, it still is! But pink is going to be a hot color this season too! Pink is already popping up everywhere. Sure, pink isn’t a novelty when it comes to handbags like yellow is. The color is still pretty though. I, for one, am happy to see its return as a color trend. You really can’t go wrong with this color. Give it a try, you’ll find carrying around a pop of pink has a strange way of lifting your spirit even on the gloomiest of days. Here are a few suggestions to get you to think pink!

We have yet to approach the best holiday festives of this year and designers worldwide are already pouring out their grand developments for their Resort 2012 collections. At this time of year, a typical bagista is jotting down winter favorites onto a Christmas wish list. But Resort pieces are begging to be considered over the classic black or fur handbag, simply check out the Solar Hobo by Jimmy Choo.
If I didn’t know any better, I would have thought this piece belonged to the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel. This may be inspired by deep artistic flair, but has no relations to the great artist Michael Angelo… or to any Biblical sights for that matter.
Instead, Jimmy Choo takes his inspiration for this tote from the segments of the astrological signs. I was first introduced to the Jimmy Choo Scarlet large tote in the trendy Exotic Print. Such a fun design the exotic prints presented and quickly, that eye catching sequined version got a darker transformation with this much deeper Zodiac theme.
One of Jimmy Choo’s newbie’s for the season arrives very glamorous and with much attitude. This is a perfect model of how Jimmy Choo accessories should look like. How could you not want to gaze at this piece for a significant amount of time? If you prefer an evening piece with just a touch of glimmer and sparkles, obviously this isn’t the choice for you.
The Glitter Clutch by the United Kingdom-based Couture House implies just that; it’s a clutch that features an infusion of acrylic glitter, all over. It fits the theme as the accessory to take on evenings out and it’ll fit any party occasion look that you may plan.
When I normally think of Jimmy Choo handbags, I think of pieces that are sleek and simple. Sure… every once in awhile you will see some exotic prints. A little bit of snake here or a little bit of leopard there. But there are those rare occasions when a wild and crazy Jimmy Choo handbag makes its way on the scene. Well ladies, this is just such the occasion. Introducing the Jimmy Choo Lottie Patent Leather and Raffia Clutch!

Brightly colored totes can be so much fun! But when those bright colors have a watercolor look to them, well that’s just icing on the cake! That is what grabbed my attention when I stumbled across the Jimmy Choo Scarlet Exotic Print Tote. Blues, aquas, greens, purples, and pinks all flow across the surface of this tote with a sense of grace about them. And to be honest, I think they look great together!
