Kate Spade’s new creative director carries on in bold color

NEW YORK (AP) — In her sophomore collection for Kate Spade, creative director Nicola Glass has stayed true to the brand’s roots in upbeat designs.

She added her own twist Friday at New York Fashion Week in the use of bold color for fall. Glass worked in silks and brocades. Leather embossed in a crocodile design for handbags offered a glossy shine.

Actresses Maggie Gyllenhaal and KiKi Layne, the budding star of “If Beale Street Could Talk,” sat on the front row.

Many of Glass’ designs came in fluid silhouettes. In addition to animal print, she used stripe designs and a crochet feel. As for one of the brand’s mainstay, bags, Glass said new designs have the heart-shape twist lock in different sizes. She worked with enamel and her new leather textures, including python prints.
