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.

Upscale cookware retailer Sur La Table has relocated its Las Vegas flagship store to Fashion Show. The 3,200-square-foot space, adjacent to Coldwater Creek and Chico’s, carries brands such as Le Creuset, Nespresso and Zwilling J.A. Henckels. Sadly, the location will not offer cooking classes, but the expanded space will yield many happy homegrown chefs with major product launches from Scanpan CSX cookware and Bob Kramer Carbon knives, and the introduction of a new gift registry.
