Kate Spade New York Fall Collection Launch 2019
Fall 2019 is the season of soft glamour and eclectic decadence. Creative Director Nicola Glass continues to focus on the new house codes she introduced for Spring and Summer – a refined approach to color, a unique print language and iconic design elements, like the spade – always keeping the brand’s core DNA in mind, while staying true to our brand promise: Optimistic Femininity.
Key elements this season include a ’70s-meets-’40s mix of fluid silhouettes and fabrics, an explosion of animal prints (because we love leopard, croc, cheetah and snake equally), rich textures, abstract florals, gentle curves and sophisticated colors that escalate from rich to vibrant.
We’re accenting deep fall colors—warm browns, cinnamons and berry shades—with fun, bright ones. Lilac is our neutral, and is paired with everything from warm shades of brown to deep evergreen and golden raisin.
Styling is focused around mixing prints and textures (like croc and corduroy for just the right balance of high shine and soft matte), prints that ignite a sense of discovery (florals that feel like animal prints), and polished looks that are punctuated with playful accessories—two bags worn at once, turbans and tights that sparkle.
The Fall 2019 collection hit a number of seasonal trends seen on the global runways, including: 70s-inspired tailoring, purple hues, animal and floral prints, statement coats, separates and two bags, one look.
