Kate Spade creative director Deborah Lloyd has been California dreaming, specifically about Hollywood and Palm Springs. Those locales, along with the seductive Chinese film “In the Mood for Love” inspired the collection. It translated into vintage-style brocades, jacquards and shiny chiffon fabrics whipped into signature Spade staples like poof skirts, tunic tops and a flirty dress in a colorful abstract flower print.
The accessories were once again cheeky with movie marquee-themed bags and jewelry, along with straw hats and golf motifs (Fore!) on bags. The company partnered with Streamline Luggage for the first time for a set of rolling suitcases featuring Spade touches like handles and wheels in bright hues and a cheerful printed lining.
