Bright colors like shocking pink, pool blue, and sunshine yellow and cheeky accessories, including a clutch shaped like a giant pair of sunglasses, were the big messages at Kate Spade New York
for Spring. The models' manicures even matched their gingham separates. We're not against having fun with fashion, but heavy-handed styling that paired a sleeveless pink dress with pink polka-dot tights and pink flower-print shoes was too cutesy for its own good. Casual looks like a miniskirt/T-shirt/cardigan combo were the best things about this collection.
