Kate Spade’s Holiday 2018 Collection takes design inspiration from penguins and the Manhattan skyline
Offering a wide range of handbags, SLGs, footwear, accessories, and more, Kate Spade New York, the American fashion company came to Chennai’s Palladium mall earlier in March this year. Ending their 25th anniversary year on a festive note, the eponymous brand founded by the late American fashion designer Kate Spade, rings in this holiday season with an all-new collection — inspired by their home city, New York-The Holiday 2018 Collection.
“The uniqueness of Kate Spade is that every month, a new collection is offered in our stores. The Holiday 2018 collection is perfect for the season of celebration. Weaving together hints of New York’s uptown glamour, dashes of artistic downtown glitz and nods to Brooklyn’s eclectic, relaxed edge, the holiday collection captures the magic, creativity, and joy of New York,” says Lipika Ganguly, marketing head, Reliance Brands.
Taking design inspirations from the Manhattan skyline, the ready-to-wear collection includes mini and midi chiffon dresses. Featuring an array of prints from dots and florals to houndstooth and hearts, the dresses are available in a palette of pale pinks and night-sky blacks. Chunky knit sweaters with dramatic sleeves, menswear-inspired pink pantsuits, velvet puffers and houndstooth wool overcoat with faux fur trim are the twists on classic styles that are introduced in the collection.
“People love the ease with which one can wear our pieces and simply elevate any look. The collection mainly features a lot of sparkles,” shares Lipika, adding that the brand’s novelty collection includes SLGs and handbags inspired by penguins, in a proper amalgamation of quirk and fashion. The latest addition to the handbag collection includes the Cameron Street Hazel — a small chain shoulder bag, done in both rose gold or silver leather and resin clutches, with floating pearls and silver baubles. Made of lightly pebbled leather and adorned with rhinestone diamonds and pearls, the bags in the collection come in several silhouettes, ranging from backpacks and tiny totes to crossbody and bucket bags. As for footwear, the season’s kitten heels come in classic black suede as well as in bubblegum pink with shiny studs. Pointy-toe slingbacks adorned with pretty bows are another highlight.
While earrings with dazzling disco balls suspended from delicate chains and crystal-encrusted hoops—
reimagined in pearls and color-blocked hearts remain the key styles, penguin tassel earrings, square studs made of vibrant faceted gems and mismatched earrings round out the collection. There is also a quirky take on phone cases with glowin-the-dark skylines, sparkles on the cover and tuxedo-donning penguin folio cases with upgrades including sticker pockets and kickstands.
