Kate Spade New York Fall 2019 Ready-To-Wear Collection Review
Description
From here on in, Kate Spade New York is as much a fashion label as it is an accessories brand. Their Fall 2019 collection stood as a testament to that. We thought this was a pleasantly strong outing from a company better known for their bags. Will they now be known for their suits and dresses too? Only time will tell!

It’s high time we start appreciating Kate Spade New York as a fashion brand. Granted, their focus has always been their iconic bags, but creative director Nicola Glass is making it her mission to transform the heritage label as an integral part of the fashion industry. And she made a very compelling case with her Fall 2019 collection for the brand. This season, she went to the 70s—as many major designers did—as her starting point. But what made her offering less costume-y than others was that modern and colorful approach she took on. Rich shades of mustard yellow, juniper green, plum, magenta, and royal blue decorated the finely-textiled and texturized outing. They shimmered in their luxurious velvet finishes, while the silkier pieces wafted with elegant finesse. Leopard, hearts, and leafy prints, on the other hand, added a tinge of quirk that’s well within Kate Spade New York’s identity. The energy here was almost electrifying and encouragingly optimistic of what’s to come with the brand’s ready-to-wear. We think they hit gold with this lot, and many women—such as actresses Kiki Layne and Julia Garner who sat front row—might agree!
