Kate Spade has teamed up with New York pudding-and-pastry shop Magnolia Bakery to create a 25-piece collection featuring cute handbags, purses, accessories and iPhone cases. Everything about this collection is sweet, and the designs are yummy enough to make any buyer hungry for more. What’s more, you can already shop the collection now on KateSpade.com!
The designs are reminiscent of what little girls would want to carry around, but brought together with a modern, more mature twist that makes it perfect for girls and women of all ages. The perfect example is the line’s cupcake handbag, which is just that: a handbag with a gold chain in the shape of a full cupcake, complete with cherries on top. This bag is simply delicious and adorable, and would look great attached to the arm of any woman who wants to add a fun twist on her outfit.
In similar, yummy fashion, the handbag with a side-view of cake is just as quirky, but a bit more subtle, for the woman who doesn’t want to make such a loud statement. This was my personal favorite in the capsule collection, because you get the tasty cake image, and even the dimension of a slice from a round cake, but you also have a bag that would look great dressed up or down, which is quite a grand feat for a dessert!
With prices ranging from $198 to $378, the Kate Spade x Magnolia Bakery bags aren’t for the light-pocketed, but they’re also within reach for the everyday woman. This makes for a great bridge between the worlds of everyday style and high fashion. Women can save up for a bag if the money isn’t readily available, so you don’t have to live a wealthy lifestyle to carry these adorable bags.
From this fun collection, you can definitely see that Kate Spade has a sense of humor. These whimsical looks really show innovation and out-of-the-box thinking. You see these designs and you can’t help but smile. They bring back memories of childhood for some, and other can simply enjoy the fact that there is a high fashion cupcake bag.
Any woman who wears a bag like this is a woman who knows how to have fun, and a woman, who loves to make others smile. That is what’s so great about these accessories. Fashion doesn’t always have to be taken so seriously, and there are way more important things in life than maintaining a stuffy fashion sense for the sole purpose of wearing luxe clothes. Every woman needs to know when to cut loose and wear a cupcake on her arm.
I know it would make my day to see a slice of cake every time I go to pull my credit card out of my purse, and my goal would be for others to see it in the same light and get the same sense of joy. I think that’s the intent Kate Spade had when she teamed up with Magnolia Bakery for this collection. The world can always do with a little more happiness and laughter, so why shouldn’t fashion do everything in its power to help?
