Thank the heavens, Kate Spade, that you have hired new talent to guide your company’s creative vision. Because, if I’m being honest, things at your line were getting a bit played out. One can only see so many bags designed with perfect right angle corners before the square and rigid thing gets a little blah.
And the Kate Spade Westbury Opus Satchel isn’t exactly an opus of innovation, it does something that no other Kate Spade bag in recent memory has done: it slouches. And it looks soft and makes me want to touch it. To me, Spade’s bags have always been prohibitively rigid and uninviting, and that’s not the best look for a bag, particularly with the trends that we have going right now. I particularly like this color, which they call Piscine Blue – wouldn’t it look great against a white dress? Buy through Bloomingdale’s for $395.
