KATE SPADE NEW YORK SPRING 2019 RTW COLLECTION

KATE SPADE NEW YORK SPRING 2019 RTW COLLECTION

A modern use of color, sophisticated, thoughtful design, discover the Kate Spade Spring collection.

September 20, 2018

The Kate Spade New York Spring 2019 is the first collection by the new Creative Director Nicola Glass with a sense of discovery in every piece. She was inspired by our brand’s beginnings as she refined and evolved our house codes in new ways.

Glass was careful to keep Kate Spade’s spirit present with detail-oriented touches, looking to its archive for inspiration. “There was a purity to their [Kate and Andy Spade’s] design approach that really appealed to me,” Glass said. Here, she reworked classics like the label’s ubiquitous spade symbol, artfully hiding it in prints and intarsias. She highlighted the importance of movement to the clothes. Standouts included a pale lavender dress with asymmetrical buttons cutting across the chest and a yellow frock boasting a matchstick print, complete with a matchstick zipper.

The handbags recollected the straightforward carryalls from the formative years of Kate Spade New York. One came in a bubblegum pink with a thoughtful spade twist-lock the size of a palm. Another artful way that showed Glass’s attention to detail was a basket bag that was created from stacked spades. Outside of the clothing, a sweet nod to the house founder came in a thin trail of never-ending glitter.
