This summer, Kate Spade announced plans to take over your entire life with merchandise in practically every category, from sleepwear to yoga clothes to a cupcake-themed collection with NYC's Magnolia Bakery chain. Now, we can see exactly what Kate Spade's collab with a cupcake shop looks like after Marie Claire and Teen Vogue posted images of a few of the bags from the collection. Kate Spade x Magnolia Bakery will be available online and in stores on October 12th.
Kate Spade's cornered the market on whimsical bags, and this collection is no different, with cupcake-shaped bags and bags that look like tubs of banana pudding. There's a cupcake carrier tote and another tote that shows the exterior of Magnolia Bakery, which had a permanent line outside for years thanks to its appearance on Sex and The City.
Prices for each bag aren't noted, but Marie Claire states that the collection tops out at $348. The cheapest item is a frosted cupcake keychain, which still rings in at a hefty $78. A cupcake-shaped coin purse will set you back $98 and that cupcake tote is $198, according to Delish.
