Colour me fabulous this summer! Featured

A selection of the brightest items on fashion radar for the upcoming season
by 12 April 2012

Do you live in black and white, or in colour? Do you dream in colour? If colour is part of your life, then this is the season for you! There are some really bright products out there, such as these Façonnable sunglasses that you really need shades to look at! This is a limited-edition series by Façonnable and Italia Independent, with the classic aviator shape, frame featuring the brand's stripy lines, and coloured lenses, blue, turqoise, orange, yellow, pink and green. Part of the €165 price tag goes to a good cause, the Lyla Nsouli Foundation for Children's Brain Cancer Research.

More colour from Tod's who are producing their classic D Bag for spring summer 2012 in a fantastic series of tuttifrutti colours, lemon yellow, purple, forest green, turquoise, mandarin and fuchsia. The python and matte crocodile used to make the bags are as soft as ever for Tod's. Whatever the occasion, you'll make a colourful appearance and carry it off!

Versace have demonstrated that their summer will be bright as well, with some fluorescent men's looks on the SS12 runway.

Brit brand Mulberry are making their sumptuous leather products in some great colours including this bright lemon yellow.

Spanish brand Loewe have added fluo pink handles and labels to their bags.

And, last but not least, we couldn't resist this lovely Borsalino hat, a bit like a cross between Charlie Chaplin and Pop Art.
Colour. Fantastic. Long may it last!
