Kate Spade NYFW Review 2019

Nicola Glass revealed her sophomore collection, as creative director of Kate Spade in one of the most anticipated shows of NYFW. The fall 2019 runway looks, entitled “Ready to Wear” are elegant, polished, and paid a sweet tribute to the brands roots.

With every look fully accessorized, Glass managed to create a glamorous and playful line. Silk midi dresses, bright animal prints and lace up boots highlighted the fresh double bag trend. Glass sent out most of her models with not one, but two bags.

Although the ‘70s were a main inspiration for the collection, the double-bag trend was made for the modern women running around New York today. Glass said most city-girls are sporting a smaller crossbody and lagging a large boxy tote. She chose revolutionize the trend while honoring the original Spade box shape.

With fluid silky silhouette’s taking the final walk, stars Maggie Gyllenhaal, Julia Garner and KiKi Layne applauded front row. Corduroy, tweed and turbans filled the Cipriani Restaurant on Wall Street, with powerful female vocalist Deee-Lite’s tune “What is Love” blasting as Glass stepped out to take a bow. Although many of Glass’s designs dialed back the bright colors the brand is known for, the collection is the evolution of bold but soft – like the average city girl.
