On Relaunching an Iconic Pattern
POPSUGAR: You brought back this pattern that Kate Spade herself designed back in the day. What made you want to bring this particular print into this collection?
Jennifer Lyu: It's one of the archival signature prints, and as soon as we both arrived [at Kate Spade], we were both drawn to it. It was only in handbags before, so we were talking about how we bring that expression of casual into the collection in a lifestyle way.
Tom Mora: We really felt like we needed this more casual expression within Kate's faith. Over the years, there's been different elements of casual dressing, but what we love about this one is that it really encapsulates not only casual, more relaxed dressing, but it also feels incredibly Kate Spade. All the little touches: the play of masculinity and femininity, the colour expression, graphicness of it, and layering that you can do with it.
