It’s a season of adventure. New beginnings, global destinations and fabulous prospects. At least, that’s what the Kate Spade New York S/S15 Collection is bound to evoke. The brand takes us on a gleefully upbeat journey for spring, with whimsical bags and prints galore.
Kate Spade New York the now eponymous label, was founded in 1993 with fashion editor Katre Brosnahan’s search for the perfect bag, which thereafter lead her to the creation of six hand bags. That would enable her to foster the ultimately global success of the brand we know today. That being said, it is understandable that the brand is known more for it’s great selection of bags. But, with the proposal of ready-to wear in the mix, all boundaries have been removed and for good reason.
As a brand, KS offers it’s woman, classic silhouettes with a touch of whimsy, a youthful exuberance with a grounded restraint, a multi-color print in the most controlled suit jacket. This restraint on the notion of quirkiness, is what enables any buyer to be drawn to the label. A seductively simple shift dress in a lightweight knit for example, was accessorized only with this season’s statement KS piece, ‘The Heart Bag’ a massive tote crafted in valentine-red leather, in the shape of a heart. Or, perhaps the new ‘resin lady-bug clutch’, a beautiful accessory to a subdued outfit. Therein lies the true ‘ace of spades’ for the brand. A global understanding of it’s clientele who diversify from doctors, pediatrician’s to editors and fashionista’s alike. This is a brand that sells items for the modern woman, with a touch of fun.
The spring presentation, now head by creative director Deborah Lloyd showcased midi-length skirts, structured crop tops and simplistic shifts ranging in color tones from bashful fuchsia, to summertime emerald, Victorian orange and metallic rose. Not to mention jackets in textured resin-leather and supple cotton.It’s all about colors, modernity and reality with a touch of whimsy . In short, a brand that is supremely fun, wearable and on-point!
