Kate Spade New York might have just showed the very on-brand '80s glam disco party on the runway, but its latest collaboration is off the beaten path for the brand: Lingerie by The Lake & Stars. Their under-wares are hipster-friendly (they once collabed with Urban Outfitters) with a streamlined, athletic look, which is different for the Kate Spade brand. But alls well, because the collection is pink. As Nikki Decker, one half of The Lake & Stars brand's design component, explained, "Pink has always been a traditional color not only for lingerie, but to represent femininity and sweetness. I love using it to create a different feel in an athletic or dark context to show a different side of what 'femininity' can mean." The collection, shoppable now, ranges in price from $58 for panties and $248 for a hammered silk chemise. Take a look here.
