Deborah Lloyd, president and chief executive officer of Kate Spade, said of the collaboration: “2013 is the year of things we love, and since the month of November celebrates ‘all that glitters,’ Swarovski was a natural partner for us. Swarovski’s penchant for sparkle paired with our playfully chic approach to occasion dressing allowed us to create a dazzling, festive holiday collection.”
To kick off the line, Kate Spade New York will create a cityscape with Swarovski Elements in the Kate Spade New York flagship window. The window, also to be unveiled today, will highlight pieces of the collection.
