The chic bohemian spirit of divas, sirens, and the creative firebirds ruled the Kate Spade Fall 2016 collection. This year’s Kate Spade fall 2016 collection was nothing but perfection as it reached out to the 70’s with its floral A-lined skirts and white blouses with neckties. The concept of dull muted fall colors is long gone as rich reds, blushing pinks and bright floral took over this season. Deborah Lloyd, the chief creative officer of Kate Spade New York, drew inspiration from music legends Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday, Sade, and Liza Minelli who she credits as her muses.
Kate Spade is known for its floral and feminine touches, this season the oxblood shades, sultry mauves, burlesque nudes and moody blues ruled the stage against a backdrop of black and white. Although this year’s fall collection was more edgy and versatile it still kept the brands signature feminine touch with floral prints and soft hues of pink.
The easy to wear pieces from this collection were the turtlenecks, tunics, and wool topper coats as they not only synchronized with the weather but created vibrant color combinations. The colors that enveloped the dresses this year were the candied tones of pastel rose, royal blue, apricot, and sunflower creating a feel of romance in the air. What really stood out was the pink soft eyelet dress that was paired with a white fur collar and a black handbag shaped like a peacock feather. The Kate Spade collection felt multi-seasonal pairing spring floral with wool print overcoats.
From luscious silks to eyelet laces, all the feminine and colorful floral prints were seen stitched beautifully into dresses and skirts that had flowing length. A shift to the seventies bohemian rouge was seen in the designs along with the music themed accessories such as the boom box clutch. From monotone black and white looks to delicate floral patterns, the Kate Spade 2016 collection had it all.
