The adventurous Kate Spade gal traveled to South America for the latest collection. Creative director Deborah Lloyd looked specifically to Havana, Rio De Janeiro and Buenos Aires, translating the laid-back vibe into what she described as a “cleaner essence, with more ease.” There were more separates than usual, especially pants. The Havana group was heavy on olive and tobacco neutrals with bright pops of coral and yellow; the Rio set played off the iconic boardwalk pattern at Ipanema Beach with graphic prints; Buenos Aires celebrated the tango with a custom rose print based on a flower “wall” that Lloyd made out of roses. The motif was shown on everything from accessories to pegged pants, the latter paired with a leather topper — one of three new leather pieces for the brand.
