Kate Spade New York travels to Paris in the ’20s – a creative melting pot that encouraged strong, interesting women to shine. Fall ’17 is a tribute to heroines who defy expectations.

Inspiration for the collection is drawn from three original rule-breakers: Louise Brooks (the quintessential flapper), Le Coquelicot (“poppy” in French – a mysterious and bold local beauty painted by Kees Van Dongen), and finally, Josephine Baker, an American who followed her dreams to Paris and became a global jazz age icon.


There’s a folkloric theme this season with an abundance of romantic florals and embroideries. Texture and novelty fabric developments add depth to the assortment with tweeds, jacquards, velvet, clips, embroideries, bouclés, printed leather, and cutwork.

More is definitely more this season with full coats, intricate embroidery and bomber jackets in leopard and printed florals layer atop feminine tiered dresses with embellished denim pieces. Hues range from dusky pink, cerise, dark cherry, and poppy red with touches of army green, black, cream and camel.

The Cameron Street Large Lane handbag, debuted for holiday 2016 is shrunken into a small crossbody this season, making it a staple accessory with new color offerings and detailing. Step into the age of rebellion with pearl t-strap maryjanes, embellished flats, and suede knee high boots featuring intricate embroidering.

The bling is all about baubles and intricate detailing for Fall ’17 – tiered drop earrings in gold and rose gold are lightweight and hang with elegant delicacy while pearl studs, hoops and choker necklaces are distinctly feminine and bold.

Kate Spade New York Tech cases take on the spirit of 1920’s Paris with novelty iPhone 7 cases. Tech takes on new life with variants like a silicone matryoshka doll and sequin cherries as well as prints like vibrant poppies and idioms like “nouveau york.”
