Must-Have: Kate Spade’s Westward Collection, A Collaboration with Emily Current and Meritt Elliott of Current/Elliott
Kate Spade consistently gives women pieces to drool over each season. Whether they be totally feminine and whimsical in true Kate Spade fashion or clean and sophisticated, there is never a shortage of designs that we all want to add to our fashion arsenal.
The brand’s newest collaboration is with “It” fashion brand, Current/Elliott. Though known for their baggy boyfriend jeans and brightly-colored denim, Emily Current and Meritt Elliott have playful, girly sides and that shows through in the collection and its eleven pieces. The imagery alone is enough to make me want to purchase everything without hesitation.
The handbags are all vintage inspired, in a great Fall palette of black, dark roast, navy, nude and taupe. Pieces are presented in a number of textures from italian ostrich to metallic sequins, giving us all a hint of glam for the season. My favorite style in the collection is the Wanderlust Satchel ($795). I can see it matching perfectly with everything for Fall and my old ostrich bag bit the dust last year, so this will be the perfect addition to my wardrobe.
Kate Spade’s Westward Collection retails for $245 – $1295. Visit www.katespade.com to purchase and www.currentelliott.com to get a matching pair of jeans for your new bag. See more pieces from the collection below.
