Kate Spade launches Garance collab for AW12

“Toutes Les Filles Sont Folles.” All the girls are mad. Mad for Kate Spade, that is.

Creative director Deborah Lloyd has been on a roll at the American brand in the past few seasons; for fall, she hit a home run with a collection of ladylike accessories and ready-to-wear that stayed sweet while injecting a dose of masculinity.

Inspired by the Cour D’Honneur at Paris’ Palais Royale, the play on prints, mixing abstract patterns with watercolors and plenty of polka dots was at once both dreamy and charmingly approachable. Black and white continued to be a palette cleanser, while mustard, red, aqua and green hues peppered themselves throughout. New for autumn winter 2012 is a collaboration with the blogger Garance Doré, whose whimsical illustrations were featured on a capsule collection of flirty dresses, full skirts and tops.
