When it comes to summer collections and bags, you know Kate Spade New York always has amazing pieces to offer! What does summer mean to them? Striped green and cream awnings. A spritz with a slice of cucumber. A cross-category cabana capsule. Floral murals. Fairy lights. Fruits and veggies exploding in shiny black pots. Seersucker. Summer plaids. Multicolored wicker chairs. Sun. Sundresses. Sun hats. Sun-kissed. Music floating up from the streets below.
In celebration of all the little things summer has to offer, this collection is inspired by summer and cocktails on the roof. Continuing this year’s theme of celebration, the new design motifs and silhouettes evoke the summertime. Kate Spade Cabana is the new handbag line that is carried across other categories. Handbags and SLGs have been reimagined with fresh variations of classic fabrications, including hand-embroidered straw, puffy quilted leather, raffia, and canvas.
Meet Gracie, a wicker top handle bag with silky leather details. Meringue is another must have style! With a braided top handle and tassel details on the sides, this new addition emphasises the adaptability of nappa leather in both a medium bucket bag and a small crossbody.
As an homage to their Squeeze novelty, their iconic Spade Flower Jacquard has been updated with grapefruit embroidery and is available in the Manhattan mini tote, the Market tote, and the Sinch bucket bag.
The Qixi heart embroidery is also featured on the Jacquard, exclusively available in their markets across Asia.
With fan favourites like raffia, straw, and a woven pattern that evokes a summer sunset, their iconic Manhattan tote reflects their new novelty motifs.
The Voyage collection has expanded to include a grain textured leather satchel, a work tote, and a top handle trunk-esque silhouette.
The Knott, one of their most popular handbags, has been updated with new materials and colorways for the season, including a raffia straw stripe, palm fronds animation, and warm color-blocking. Knott’s soft, feminine curved lines have also been highlighted in new iterations of a medium crossbody tote, a medium flap backpack, and a laptop bag.
Novelty embraces summer with inspiration from seasonal treats and delights. In both wicker and Italian leather, Squeeze is a unique take on the pink grapefruit. In the double small crossbody and the tomato-embroidered small Manhattan tote, Roma takes on a favourite summer fruit. With the green-striped cabana market tote, the cabana straw circle tote, and the 3D cabana tent crossbody from Sunkiss, you can have fun and relax in the sun.
After perusing their lovely summer bag collection, it’s only fitting that we pair them with some lovely sundresses!
With light and airy fabrics and bold colorways, their Summer ready-to-wear collection captures the essence of the season. Kate Spade Cabana is carried into RTW from handbags. Poplin, linen, taffeta, and twill are popular fabrics. This collection has something for every woman, with new patterns and silhouettes. As an ode to their Sunkiss novelty handbags, the Suns Lake Dress in seersucker stands up to the summer heat with delicate puff sleeves. Season-specific novelty prints are scattered throughout, and include the cucumber floral, the rooftop garden floral, cabana stripe and palm fronds, and can be found across the collection, ideal for any summer occasion.
