June 18 marks one of the best retail holidays of the year: National Splurge Day. And with all the beautiful bags available for Spring 2013, we can't think of a better way to spend this day than looking through the dizzying array of colors and shapes, varying from sleek and simple to festooned with appliqués and visual effects. Mulberry's Willow bag, for example, has a minimal shape that nonetheless makes a bright splash in mint green, while Sophia Webster's Azealia Striped Python Clutch explodes with a variety of candy hues.
A look at the rest of the best — from Gucci, Saint Laurent, Prada, Lanvin, Céline, and beyond — here in the gallery.
