This Fall, Kate Spade designed a collection that pays homage to its place of origin, New York’s iconic “I LOVE NY”, along with some other feathered friends and big apples. They’re mixed with heritage elements of our own, like checks, animal prints and our spade flower.
Handbags & Small Leather Goods
This season, the fashion house plays with a mix of prints grounded alongside graphic colours and new neutrals. Every style has animation and unexpected details, and they have reimagined core silhouettes for now. They focus on weaving their core brand codes for Fall across the collection: the signature spade flower print, classic menswear fabrications, bold animal prints and cheerful novelty. The collection is eclectic, vibrant, and full of interesting characters.
“I LOVE NY” capsule collection
Kate Spade give a big hug to New York with a special “I LOVE NY” capsule collection. In 1977, Milton Glaser drew this iconic logo in the back of a yellow taxi, and today it represents travel across the entire Empire State.
Spade Flower Jacquard
Kate Spade also debuted two new iterations of Spade Flower Jacquard for Fall, a cream and black colorway topped with a pink and red racer stripe, and a black and white pattern scattered with red embroidered hearts. The new designs come in four new shapes this season, including a camera bag, a drawstring crossbody bucket bag, a new flap backpack, and a large weekender duffel.
A new item was created for the season, Manhattan Tote that continues their rich partnership with famed Italian mill, Limonta. Available in pink plaid, a spade flower motif made up of various textures, a velvety chenille houndstooth, and a wool plaid, this tote fits everything one would need for a day of exploration. With function in mind, the tote features a soft handle and crossbody strap – making it easy and comfortable to carry everything from a laptop to a spare pair of heels.
Also new for the season is Lovitt, a polished top-handle shoulder bag that is available in two distinct sizes. Lovitt features a smaller, more delicate evolution of our iconic spade hardware. It comes in smooth, softly grained and croc-embossed leathers as well as polka dots, in an array of vibrant colors.
New for core is Zip Code, featuring an updated casual silhouette that can be used as a work satchel or for weekend adventures, and is available in an assortment of solids and colorblock pattern and haircalf.
Buddie is an easy double-gusset crossbody with a feminine, rounded shape and a wide webbing strap. Available in fun pops of colour and a menswear check.
The Knott group we add a new modern shoulder silhouette made in a range of buttery pebbled leather.
In novelty, the brand designed Blinx, a functional, eye-catching crossbody in the shape of an owl with layers of texture. The “I LOVE NY” capsule features the iconic emblem design reinterpreted in a modern and elevated way through beautiful techniques, and layered into our fashion forward silhouettes, like the Manhattan Tote and Buddie crossbody. Continuing our New York theme, key fobs and coin cases have been designed in the shape of pretzels, hot dogs, taxi cabs and Metro Cards to round out the assortment.
Small Leather Goods
Well-loved brand codes shine through in playful, feminine details like ruffles, smocking and tiering that combine the ease of 70s couture with comfort and effortless design. Versatile occasion dresses and separates combine glamour, soft structure and tailoring to make a collection of spirited pieces, while allowing women to mix and match or incorporate pieces from their own closet. The Denim Bow Waist Dress reimagines a typically casual fabric to be a feminine occasion dress. The Taxi Dress is the ultimate silhouette to take you from day to night.
From pretzels and taxis to the iconic apple, this season’s jewelry collection continues the fashion brand’s Love Letter to New York. The iconic NY symbol, an apple, is the inspiration for a range of styles created in red pave to be the perfect pop. Our Shining Spade group is a gorgeous evolution of the modern pearl with an element of charm. Something Sparkly is a new logo evolution that we debut this season. We continue to reinvigorate the Spade Flower motif in a brilliant cut stone with a spade flower cage setting across studs & huggies.
Brand codes shine in the assortment with leopards, spade flower jacquard, velvet, dots and this season’s owl novelty seen throughout. Meg, a new flat that suitable for all-day wear, available in elevated materials with pop colour linings and topped off with a crystal button.
These new pieces are launched every month from the Fall collection in Kate Spade New York boutiques starting from August 2021.
