Kate Spade is pretty well-known for its kitschy bags (the brand's version of Fendi's bag bugs are starring in their upcoming fall ads), and the new Holiday 2015 collection doesn't disappoint. Purseblog got a look at the upcoming collection and the winter-themed bags take on a very literal translation of the holiday season: there's a clutch designed to look like a polar bear sitting on an ice cube, a camera bag that is literally a bag shaped like a camera, and a leather bag designed as a champagne ice bucket.

The bags are priced from $198 to $798, with most of the super-themed bags coming in at around $300–$400. For those who don't have too many holiday theme parties scheduled just yet, there's a selection of regular day bags to choose from as well.
