This marks the brands first runway show since the untimely death of founder Kate Spade. The show had little touches that paid tribute to the fashion icon. The runway was illuminated with pink lighting and decorated with glitter on the side.
Showgoers also received a small, but mighty message on their seats, the message read: “She left a little sparkle everywhere she went,” which is a play on one of the designer’s most famous quotes: “She leaves a little sparkle wherever she goes.” This was also the first runway show under a new creative director, Nicola Glass.
Generally, Kate Spade’s collections are shown in presentation formats, however this is the first season they switched to runways.
