KATE SPADE SHOWS A LITTLE SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE AT NEW YORK FASHION WEEK

A look from Kate Spade's Fall 2017 collection. 

I spent most of my day Thursday asking former colleagues and industry friends if they were going to Kate Spade New York's presentation, held Friday morning at the Russian Tea Room. After the brand's Fall 2016 event at Rockefeller Center's historic Rainbow Room last February (at which Chantal, Tyler and I loitered for no less than a full hour), the consensus was this: We a) had missed Kate Spade's delightful shindigs when it sat out the Spring 2017 calendar, and b) were excited to see what tricks the label had up its sleeve.

And after a year of build up with our expectations being about as steep as they could be — Kate Spade's last presentation had fries, you see! — its return did not disappoint. The brand had commandeered the Russian Tea Room's entire four floors, with waiters distributing caviar and dispersing flutes of champagne. The space was sumptuous, and for Fall 2017, the clothes fit right in. Velvets, leopard prints and deep florals were seen in nearly every look, combined with the ladylike detailing (like pearl embellishments, leather driving gloves and pussy bow neckties) that help to distinguish Kate Spade's ready-to-wear from its competitors. The brand embraced the venue's theme, too, with a minaudière in the shape of a Russian Matryoshka doll and oversized fur hats. 

The retailer's New York Fashion Week homecoming came with a bonus: In addition to showing its standard off-season wears, Kate Spade also included a number of looks from its Spring 2017 collection. As chief creative officer Deborah Lloyd told Fashionista in August, the brand has a broader plan to better align itself with the consumer calendar. "You can see the total vision of what we create," said Lloyd, describing her reasoning for showing two seasons in one. "The reason for that is really to keep everybody happy. We're a brand that likes to keep everybody happy." Kate Spade's "see now, buy now" offerings ventured to Morocco, with pompom-adorned sweaters, dusty rose prints and no shortage of tassels. (For the record: "Tassels are the new bows," Lloyd wrote.) 

It was a lot to take in, especially when paired with the space's tight hallways and busy crowds, but we certainly can't knock showgoers's desire to hang out in a place so rich, in all aspects of the word.

After Kate Spade created the super-cute Bee Bag, it needed some place to stay. So the creative fashion house quickly designed the Wicker Beehive and signature it with ‘Oh Honey’.

READ: Kate spade Wicker Bee Bag

The Kate Spade Wicker Beehive Bag is the fashion thing you need for this season – it’s small, light weighed, ‘unique’ and it reminds me of the Winnie the Pooh story.

Although it’s too tiny to be your favorite beach bag, the size is ideal for other occasions. Think of the shopping days when you need a mini bag to store your personal essentials, think of the little white dress that marries this bag like bees and honey.

Crafted from natural seagrass with smooth leather trim, refined with 14 karat gold plated hardware, this clutch bag opens with a frame closure. The center is featured with a dividing zip pocket and there is a ‘Kate Spade New York’ charm attached, can you find it?

And one more thing, the bees embellished on the Beehive Bag is adorned with jewel-like stones. It’s made with a woven-straw wristlet. Measuring 8’ x 7.6’ x 7.6’ (H x W x D) inches, priced at 405 euro via Kate Spade store.

The unique design of the crossbody bag is a practical yet fashionable way to stay hands free this spring. Built to look like an old fashioned suitcase, but at a fraction of the size, you can choose from the larger 7.2”h x 9.2”w option or the smaller 3.7”h x 5.9”w if you’re a lighter packer. The larger bag is €505 and the smaller bag is €370 from Kate Spade UK. One benefit to the small one is that it comes in both sunshine and cherry liqueur, while the large bag is only available in red at the moment.
