With one season under her belt and a splashy Spring ad campaign featuring It-girls like Kiki Layne and Sadie Sink, Kate Spade’s creative director, Nicola Glass set her sites towards Fall. Taking over Manhattan’s Cipriani restaurant, Glass created a ’70s-inspired set (plush pink carpeting, glass curtain-like dividers) with the outfits to match. “This season, I started by imagining raiding an insanely glamorous woman’s closet, and the rich, eclectic mix you’d find that you could make your own,” said Glass in a press release. “I envisioned women who are looking for clothes that are spirited, feminine, and fundamentally effortless.”
As seen on the runway, those clothes include sharp suits, shirt dresses, knit polos, overall dresses, and A-line skirts. Accessories like to-the-knee lace-up boots, top handle, and cross body bags, plus the turbans that punctuated each models’ look added an extra layer to the style. The color combinations were unexpected, yet inspiring: canary yellow with brown, jade green and purple, chartreuse and lilac—all mixes a woman can DIY right now.
