The Happiest Place on Earth Might Be the Kate Spade New York Collection
Last Autumn, Kate Spade New York did a bit of navel-gazing by looking to the Big Apple for inspiration. But a year later, and it seems the Kate Spade girl is ready for something even brighter. Enter: Tokyo. A visit to the capital city of Japan served as creative director Deborah Lloyd's reference for the brand's Autumn/Winter 2014 collection, which included a happy mix of sparkly embellishments and vibrant colours — from electric blues, neon pinks, and shocking yellows to muted pastels that helped break up the flashing-lights frenzy.
But with so much to look at, what will pique the interest of the Kate Spade girl most? Oh, the three-dimensional birdcage purse, the fan clutch inspired by the Transcontinental Express, and that classic takeout container handbag that is already making the rounds on Instagram and guaranteeing a smile from anyone who sees it.
