Kate Spade RTW Fall 2014

Creative director Deborah Lloyd has long been a fan of location-inspired collections and this season she looked to her recent travels in Japan and China (the company will open a Ginza flagship later this year).

While the brand’s signature whimsy still prevailed, looser silhouettes gave this line a more modern feel than usual. The Tokyo group drew from the city’s frenetic energy with a bright palette and neon-light print, while the Shanghai portion was influenced by the old Art Deco hotels, so there were leopard prints, chunky knits, mohair and metallics. The Orient Express was the last stop, offering what Lloyd called “a new take on evening” with a mix of old-world glamour and modern styling rooted in navy.

Some of the accessories were kitschy as always — bags in the shapes of a Chinese takeout container and a birdcage — but men’s wear-inspired loafers and brogues and a bag in leather and calf hair marked a new, more sophisticated destination for the line.
