Kate Spade launches Debut Clothing Collection

25 Aug

Preps and sophisticates rejoice. Kate Spade launched her debut clothing collection this week on her website and at Bloomingdales.com. The colorful and uber chic collection features mix and match pieces that will spruce up any urban fashionistas wardrobe. The collection is flirty but grown up with tons of vintage inspired pieces.

The Kate Spade New York debut collection has some pop culture influences. Tweed cigarette pants channel Audrey Hepburn but is updated with a super two-tone cashmere cardigan and a crisp bow-tie front button down shirt. The “Bisous Gale” Lace Dress, a scalloped lace above the knee dress is vintagey but reminds me of Marion Cotillard’s fish scale Oscar gown from Jean Paul Gaultier’s spring 2008 couture collection. Then there’s the “Madeleine Mona” Striped Tweed Trench Coat which is the perfect cover up for the cooler fall months in the city.

There is nothing in the collection that I don’t want to include in my wardrobe. What I really love about the Kate Spade New York debut clothing collection is that each piece can be mixed and matched and will go wonderfully with things pieces that you already own. The price point is mid-range, with most pieces between $200 and $400. The most expensive item is the “Bisous” Sateen Bow Trench Coat at $645. I am going to predict that the Kate Spade clothing line will give J.Crew and Tory Burch some competition.

A few of my friends are already going ga-ga over the collection and one of my girlfriends has already bought the Bisou Gale Sequin dress for an event she’s attending next week. I can’t wait to see all the Kate Spade lovers wearing the designer’s brand head-to-toe. I just hope it’s executed well.
