Care to Take a Trip to Paradise With Kate Spade New York?
Each season, Kate Spade New York's Fashion Week presentation whisks us off to a distant locale. Whether that's a trip to the Far East or a walk down memory lane, we're always thrilled to come along on the journey.
For Spring 2015, our adventure was set in the most lovely garden party your heart could imagine. Greeted by Chief Creative Officer Deborah Lloyd's message, "Welcome to the year of escaping the ordinary," guests had to oblige while strolling through the green lawn and the smell of fresh-cut grass.
The clothing lived up to the atmosphere, with easy-to-wear dresses for work and play, in eyelet, stripes, and floral appliqué. And what garden party is complete without wicker? Straw baskets — in whimsical shapes of frogs and cottages — accompanied the designs, as did slides (the most adorable of which had sunglasses as straps). The result lived up to another promise of Lloyd's, which was "These are the pieces that can take you anywhere, on any adventure." While we are assured she's correct, we can imagine ourselves nowhere but in paradise in this collection.
