Koh Samui Selects: Great Bags For Spring
Spring is finally, shyly showing her face here in NYC. During this time of year I am usually hesitant to invest heavily in new clothes, due to the fickle nature of the weather. However, I do feel the need to embrace the changing season in my wardrobe and, for that, I turn to accessories. What better way to incorporate some new color and life into your wardrobe with a new bag? This often leads to a lot of time spent browsing online stores and fantasizing about what an unlimited budget could do for my wardrobe. So, why not indulge in a little fantasy with me and check out these perfect bags for spring:
Alexander McQueen Hummingbird Knuckle Box Clutch
Buy Online: matchesfashion.com
Florals have taken over much of the sartorial universe as of late. I love this Alexander McQueen take on the trend–which adds a little edge to, what can sometimes be, a very feminine and staid pattern. Here, McQueen has abandoned the fashion house’s usual skull motif knuckle duster and replaced it with a hummingbird and flowers, continuing the motif present on the bag. Overall, this item screams spring and would make a wonderful addition to anyone’s wardrobe.
Mui Mui Two-Tone Leather Handbag
Buy Online: mytheresa.com
Conjuring up sunny skies ahead, this bag harnesses the color-blocking trend in bright and fun colors. This bag is not too over-the-top but still fun–and would make a great work-to-night transition piece for spring.
Mui Mui Two-Tone Leather Handbag
Buy Online: harrods.com
I’m not going to lie, if it were a fiscal possibility I would own this bag in less than a heartbeat. Sure, I love the monochromatic and muted palate of the bag but even more than that I like the bondage-style leather knots incorporated into the bag’s construction. This bag is perfect for spring combining lighter leathers with darker elements and fits in perfectly with the monochromatic trend.
Carven Paisley Panel Canvas Tote
Buy Online: mywardrobe.com
A good tote is hard to come by. A fun tote that works for both the office and the weekend? Even harder. This Paisley Panel Canvas Tote by Carven is just that–bright and saturated colors really make this a stand-out for the season.

Hologram finishing is having a moment as of late and this clutch is a particularly well-executed take on the trend. The deep golden color is sure to remind you of the warm days ahead while the contrasting green hologram effect is certainly spring-like.

Every 11-year-old instinct in my body squealed with joy when I saw this bag. Yes it is minimalist, functional and clean in design…but it also GLOWS IN THE DARK. That’s right, this baby will make all who see it yearn for the days of glow-in-the-dark t-shirts and catching fireflies on hot summer nights. Sure, this is probably meant to appeal to the club going crowd (imagine how easy you would be to find!) but my inner child is going to maintain that it is really meant for her.

A toned-down version of last season’s neon trend this bag is a lovely shade of yellow/green.
ASOS Leather Shopper Bag With Punchout Detail
Buy Online: asos.com
For those who are a little floral trend shy (I sure am) this bag is a perfect mix of minimal white leather design with a touch of spring. The punch-out design is floral but not overwhelming and would make a wonderful addition to any spring wardrobe.
