SPRING FORWARD: Roots Preview

The Canadian heritage label offers get-happy accessories for Spring 2011

Doctors advise a daily dose of Vitamin C, especially in the winter months. While a packet of Emergen-C might ward off the common cold, a pop of citrus hue (perhaps via a great bag) will surely lift your style spirits. With pick-me-ups on the mind, check out this lively orange bucket bag from Roots. For Spring 2011, the label’s leather collection is upbeat and the strongest its been in a long time. The Canadian heritage brand has found a balance of nostalgic staples – such as mini-duffle and saddle bag with a reworked beaver emblem – and fashion forward styles like this orange number. A iPad envelope clutch – again in feel-good orange – and Celine-esque colour-block totes also caught our eye as modern essentials. Crafted from fine Italian leather in the Roots factory just outside Toronto, the collection was chock-full of luxurious accessories with plenty of pep.
