Cute City!! Kate Spade Dresses!

Kate Spade was bought by Liz Claiborne Inc. and it seemed like it was going to be the death of the Kate Spade brand as we knew it.  Well, Tim Gunn then took over LC and I have to say, I don't think that there is anything to worry about.

One of the new happenings at Kate Spade is that they finally started making womens ready to wear.  I've moaned for years that they should, maybe they finally heard my private whining.  The clothes that they came up with are cute, fun, quirky and specifically made to look fantastic with the bags.  They aren't all matchy-matchy with the bags, instead they compliment them nicely.

I had the good fortune of being in the front row for their first Kate Spade RTW show, but unfortunately I didn't take any pictures.  Now the line is in its second season and it seems to be going strong.    The clothes still capture the Kate Spade quirky sensibility but are entirely wearable and cute.  You don't have to wear them with Kate Spade bags, they'd go with almost any handbag and accessory.  Its just nice to see someone making clothes that don't look like costumes, instead all of the pieces look like fun!

Time Lag...

I know, I know, I know. I forget to update this thing! And, it gets a surprising amount of hits! Who knew?!

Since I last updated, fashion has of course changed. Some of the changes were awesome--Kate Spade started putting out a rtw collection. I was in the front row at their first show and it was wonderful. There was one terrible change in the fashion world...Lee Alexander McQueen tragically took his own life.

Attached is a picture of one of my favorite Alexander McQueen pieces that I've owned. The cut was ingenious...there were no side seams yet the fit was amazing. Its heartbreaking to think that the man who dreamed up the skirt won't be around to keep on dreaming up more wonderful artwork.

Suicide is never the answer.
