In support of her first collection for Kate Spade New York, creative director Nicola Glass called upon actresses Julia Garner, Sadie Sink and Kiki Layne to appear in its spring campaign. The campaign was shot by Tim Walker, who previously worked with the brand from 1999 to 2006 under Kate and Andy Spade. The ads were styled by Sara Moonves. “I’ve always been drawn to the idea of a spontaneous gathering of girlfriends, and the joyful, spirited celebrations that ensue. The intimate moments of a girl’s weekend away is the backdrop for the spring 2019 campaign, bringing to life the optimistically feminine world at the heart of my vision for Kate Spade,” said Glass. “I was honored to work with Julia Garner, Sadie Sink and Kiki Layne on our spring 2019 campaign. As a brand, we encourage women to be the heroines of their own story, and these three women are the ultimate embodiment of that idea.” The spring 2019 campaign features print and digital images that were shot on location at the Floating Farmhouse in Eldred, N.Y.—Lisa Lockwood
