Electric Youth

Its story will no doubt become fashion lore. Designer Christopher Kane wanted to craft a bag that would cheer up his ill sister, so he created a bright neon purse from remnants of his upcoming spring collection because, of course, everyone smiles at the very glimpse of neon.

Kane’s sister wore the bag to a party, causing a stir, and Net-A-Porter came calling asking to sell the bags exclusively. The Scottish designer, who hadn’t planned on producing the bag at all, created the clutch in four eye-catching colors: neon yellow, orange, pink and green. $530, Net-a-Porter.com.
