Kate Spade Creates Holiday Collection With Swarovski

The 14-piece collection, called All Aglow, incorporates Swarovski Elements on signature apparel and accessories.

ALL THAT SPARKLES: Kate Spade New York has created a limited-edition holiday collection with Swarovski Elements that will launch at Spade’s Madison Avenue flagship in New York and on katespade.com today. The 14-piece collection, called All Aglow, incorporates Swarovski Elements on signature Kate Spade New York apparel and accessories, such as a fit-and-flare dress, elbow length gloves, and a pavé bow collar necklace and matching cuff.

Apparel will retail from $158 for the Be Dazzling T-shirt to $3,298 for a jacket with crystal detailing. Accessories start at $248 for the crystal stone embellished scarf and go as high as $798 for the metal and crystal clutch.

Deborah Lloyd, president and chief executive officer of Kate Spade, said of the collaboration: “2013 is the year of things we love, and since the month of November celebrates ‘all that glitters,’ Swarovski was a natural partner for us. Swarovski’s penchant for sparkle paired with our playfully chic approach to occasion dressing allowed us to create a dazzling, festive holiday collection.”

To kick off the line, Kate Spade New York will create a cityscape with Swarovski Elements in the Kate Spade New York flagship window. The window, also to be unveiled today, will highlight pieces of the collection.
