The hot days abound in amazing style possibilities and accessories are a major part when it comes to defining these fabulous alternatives. Combining elegance and functionality, the Rodo spring/summer 2012 bag collection brings a myriad of interesting designs to help you shine whenever you want this summer. The clutch-heavy collection clearly highlights the desire for sophistication, refinement and timelessness as opposed to current fads. Classic vibes blend with contemporary twists in a multitude of interesting approaches.

Geometric touches are a key factor to creating versatile designs capable of withstanding the test of time being an obvious choice of the brand who played with textural details to different degrees in order to bring that special touch that immediately puts them on the new season wish list. The concern with offering both irresistible glam options along with alternatives that simply spell out ‘summer’. For options in the first category, sheen proves a fabulous detail that sets the styles apart.

Tiny crystal rhinestones and golden elements are the cues that immediately create that luxurious vibe many crave when selecting an evening clutch. The sources of inspiration become evident at a simple glance of the details: exotic skin prints, leaves or sea symbols such as clams or pearls. Besides shine, patent leather is another indicative of the desire for a classy statement present in most of the designs, being the hallmark of quality and durability.

Moving on to more practical styles we notice a different set of elements that provide an exciting vibe. Woven details or straw bags with a fun twist along with edgy studs are the main options the brand offers for the new season. The monochrome handbags are cheered up by metallic elements which add interest without severely limiting the mixing and matching possibilities. Making a statement can rely simply on creating the right touch with the help of accessories and the spring summer Rodo collection is filled with beautiful examples of how to achieve this fab effect.
