Well, this was bound to happen. In fact, we are surprised it didn’t sooner! Since Deborah Lloyd joined Kate Spade as creative director and co-president a year ago, speculation was that the accessories brand would cross over into apparel. According to WWD, perception is reality.
Next spring expect the first collection of
Tory Burch Kate Spade apparel. Initially, the line will only be sold at Kate Spade stores…to test fit. As early as fall 2009, Kate Spade may start wholesaling the apparel to other retailers, including Saks Fifth Avenue, Bloomingdale’s and Nordstrom. The launch comes at a time when retailers are looking to update what once were called bridge floors with personality and pattern-focused lines like Tory Burch and M Missoni.
