In recent memory, Kate Spade's aesthetic has always been one of quirky cleanliness. Edgy prep, irreverent femininity, whatever you want to call it--Kate Spade is traditionally ladylike and youthful, but not without self-awareness of the tropes into which it plays. For Fall 2017, though, the brand has dialed back the jokes just a bit for bags that are simple, classic and more or less seasonless.
If you like the funnier side of Kate Spade, don't despair; there are still some cute clutches, including one in the shape of a matryoshka. The collection's clothes are also impressively luxe, with a rich mixture of prints, textures and saturated colors. Some of the line's florals make the jump to the bags by way of neat embroideries, but on average, the bags are simple leather shapes that women who shop in Spade's price range will find useful for a lot of different occasions. Best of all, none of them will look especially dated after a season or two. Check out the collection below.
