The fashion brand tiptoed into London with a pop-up shop in Covent Garden last October. Now its coming back in a bigger way, putting the finishing touches on a 4,000-square-foot shop in Sloane Square thats set to open in September.
Expect to find sweet retro furnishings, walls of handbags, and prim dresses loved by the likes of Zooey Deschanel.
In other Kate Spade news, the brand just announced that it has created a capsule collection of lip colour in collaboration with Lipstick Queen founder Poppy King.
We see [lipstick] as the perfect finishing touch, said Deborah Lloyd, creative director of Kate Spade New York. It just felt right. This isnt about a wholehearted jump into the colour cosmetics space our girl wears lipstick, and we want to provide it for her. And Poppy is such a Kate Spade brand girl she just got what we wanted to do. These colours are whimsical and fun and very us.
The concise line of four shades which are lipstick/lip gloss hybridsPop Art Pink, a light pink; Bashful Blush, a sheer nude; Fuchsia Fete, a sheer fuchsia, and Adventurous Red, a sheer red has been given the tongue twisting title Supercalifragilipstick. The lipsticks will sell for $24 (around £15).
