kate spade new york comes to London

US label kate spade new york is coming to London for the first time with a ‘Pop-up Apartment’ offering a selection of its colourful modern classics open throughout this month. Located in a Georgian townhouse in Covent Garden, everything in the apartment from the crockery to the art and furnishings will reflect the kate spade new york girl. The bespoke interior will provide a fitting backdrop to showcase the kate spade new york range (bags, luggage, shoes, jewellery, stationery, eyewear, apparel and homewear) as well as a selection of exclusive London merchandise. Highlights include: a graphic tee featuring the phrases ‘no sleep till brooklyn’ and ‘london calling’ screen-printed on the front in red and blue lettering; a light-weight, black canvas tote with thin leather handles; a cloth journal in a bold signature red with a pop of aqua on the inside cover; and a ‘london calling’ enamel bracelet. There will also be a series of events such as champagne teas and baking parties will take place throughout October.
