The buzz: This is the biggest standalone boutique by the revered American Kate Spade, well-known for its cheery prints.
The vibe: The 500 sq. meter space is kept simple and stark white so that the clothes take center stage, not that these colorful pieces need any help to stand out.
The goods: The complete Spring Summer collection is available in stores now, spanning a gamut of handbags, apparels, shoes, jewelry, stationery, eyewear, small leather goods and accessories. Don’t know where to start? Just zoom in first on collaboration pieces with Australian artist Florence Broadhurst, who combines bold colors with floral and polka dot prints (very vintage-inspired) that’s even better than the real thing. Especially noteworthy are the pencil skirts, scarves and evening dresses that are both classic and on-trend. There are also lots of stripe and floral motif pieces from the rest of the collection that will easily capture your attention. Price points are $400-860 for handbags and $70-1,430 for the Broadhurst collection.
Why you’ll be back: Everyone needs a little cheering up once in a while.
