Bold, brilliant and unique are all the vibes we get from Kate Spade New York. The designer’s main focus is on individuality and from the tweed handbags to the leaf textured dresses – it is clear to see that Kate succeeded in this year’s NYFW. But whilst the prints are outlandish, the clothes themselves are familiar – the classic a-line skirt, the blazer, the shift dress to the shirtdresses are all recognizable pieces we all own. All of which means Spade’s style and the clothes she designs are universal: we could wear them on a date, to an interview or just on errands. The range of dresses went from simple sundresses to more formal ones– perfect for any occasion.
We adored the simple yet detailed floral and striped patterns, and the adorable take on the bucket hat trend, trading the hat’s typically dark colours with bright pinks and reds.
From shorts, to trousers to the feminine silhouette of her dresses there is so much to say about this collection! The colours are playful: we saw shades of red, green, beige, blue and pink. Like the rest of us, Kate clings onto summer, the models wore panama hats and white-framed sunglasses on the catwalk, and whilst it’s not practical for a British Summer, it looked stunning on stage.
It’s of no surprise that the Kate Spade handbags were a hit; we were lusting over every single one! The diverse mix means there’s a handbag for everyone. We saw large heart-shaped handbags and logo clutches that have ‘Kiss’ sewn on. We also saw the unusual: animal-shaped bags (you can choose from snail, fish, frog to a crab) and bags shaped like flower pots. It may not everyone’s cup of tea but one thing’s for certain: the Kate Spade show was one we won’t be forgetting for a long time!
