Kate Spade New York’s offerings are always for the destination-minded, as well as the buy-now-wear-now set. For resort, creative director Deborah Lloyd had something for everyone. Free-flowing boho party dresses continued to be key, coming in black-and-white polka dots and an abstract holiday lights-inspired pattern. A pale pink and black group veered closer to the typical Kate Spade New York fare, featuring an abstract floral pattern on a nip-waist full skirt dress, or appliquéd flowers on a pale pink blouse, which was paired with a scalloped edge miniskirt. The exclusive Madison Avenue group featured red-carpet-ready party dresses, especially appealing in a floor-length black floral style and a tiered black lace look with a bow neckline detail — worn with patent-leather loafers.
Lloyd expressed the brand’s wittier side in accessories that were themed around holidays gifts and lights; bags and jewelry even had a white rabbit popping of a black hat in a nod to what Lloyd called that “magical time of year.”
