Actresses Julia Garner (ÒOzarkÓ), Sadie Sink (ÒStranger Things,Ó) and KiKi Layne (ÒIf Beale Street Could TalkÓ) are once again featured in Kate SpadeÕs fall ad campaign. The ads were photographed in London by Tim Walker, a longtime collaborator who worked with the brand from 1999 to 2006 under Kate and Andy Spade. The campaign was styled by Sara Moonves.ÒFor the fall season, I started by imagining raiding an insanely glamorous womanÕs closet, and the rich, eclectic mix youÕd find that you could make your own. I was inspired by the idea of a womanÕs closet Ñ the thought of where clothes end up rather than where they originated. I envisioned women are looking for clothes that are spirited, feminine and fundamentally effortless,Ó said Nicola Glass, creative director of Kate Spade New York. Ads will break on Instagram July 29 and in the September issues of national and international magazines, other digital platforms and out-of-home as well as across social media. Ñ Lisa Lockwood
