We’re big fans of totes in summer. For some reason cold weather lends itself easier to the chicness and uptown luxe of clutches and satchels, but when spring rolls around that relaxed feeling drifts into our closet and suddenly comfort and function reign supreme. So when we spotted this Issey Miyake Prism Rainbow Tote—in on-trend pastel hues no less—we knew we needed it. Multi-colored triangular tiles are randomly arranged to give the bag an individualized look, and change color with movement and light. The angular patterns give the bag a three-dimensional sculptural look, and can go from a flat tote to an architectural marvel depending on what you fill your new bag with. The handles are adjustable to carry either in hand or wear over the shoulder so everyone can see your new artistic fashion statement. Big enough for you iPad, beach towel, pet cat—whatever you like to carry around with you—it’s basically the perfect summer bag.
