Although fall has just begin, spring is in the air with showers of reports from fashion weeks in New York, London and Milan (with Paris to come). One especially trending topic: The colors of the upcoming season, which span across the rainbow spectrum, from Pantone’s 2012 color of the year, “Tangerine Tango” and variations on that theme, to lime greens to cooling blues.

Put them all together, and you have Kate Spade’s new “Live Colorfully” umbrella, available now for $78 through the company's website. (The Galleria boutique expects a shipment of these fun must-have accessories in about two weeks.) The umbrella comes with a matching sleeve for easy toting.

The refreshing palette perfectly reflects Pantone’s “Fashion Color Report Spring 2013,” which was released just prior to the annual New York fashion event. The umbrella employs dusk blue, lemon zest, emerald and yes, nectarine in playful stripes, adding a dose of delight to even the wettest of weather.

Just pop your new umbrella open, and you’re sure to be on the color target. You can’t miss!
