Kate Spade lives in another world. It's a world without stains, rumples or wardrobe malfunctions, one where women have "beaus" instead of casual sex partners. For next spring, designer Deborah Lloyd continued with the retro-sophisticated aesthetic that's made the brand so popular.
Styled by famous face Brad Goreski, models at the brand's spring 2014 presentation looked like they had just stepped out of the late '50s. They stood, gazelle-like, about a grass-covered space in West Chelsea in feminine, fit-and-flare cocktail dresses, pretty brocade trousers and flippy little skirts. If you hate that the '90s is back and you can get down with bobby socks, you'll dig this vibe.
Pretty accessories completed the picture, like dainty pointy-toe heels, glamorous oversize hats and sunglasses, and structured little bags. See nine of our favorites after the jump.
