Jack Spade New York has extended its collaborative efforts for spring, partnering with Sperry and the Museum of Modern Art on a collection of accessories that will bow later this month.
These collaborations will join ongoing ones with Barneys New York and Save Khaki United and are intended to mark the 20th anniversary of the brand.
They were spearheaded by Cristiano Quieti, senior vice president and president of Jack Spade New York, and are titled “Friends of Jack.” The partners were chosen, the company said, because all share a “connective thread — they are iconic East Coast, often New York City brands, with an appreciation for great design.”
The Sperry shoes will include slip-ons and lace-ups with stripes or colorblocking that will retail for $75 to $100. They will be available on the Sperry and Jack Spade web sites as well as in select Sperry stores.
The Museum of Modern Art capsule offers seven canvas accessories including totes, wallets and a paddle bag that will be sold on both companies’ web sites and will retail for $38 to $298.
The Barneys bags include messengers, totes, briefcases, wallets and card cases that sell for $648 to $698 while the Save Khaki United offering offers seven styles of washed shorts in earth tones that retail for $140 to $150.
Jack Spade is the men’s wear offshoot of Kate Spade and was founded in a loft on Warren Street in lower Manhattan in 1997.
Kate Spade & Co., the parent company, has been up for sale since last year when activist investor Caerus Investors pushed the brand to seek a deal. Final bids were due last week and Coach Inc. and Michael Kors Holdings Ltd. are among those rumored to be interested in the firm.
