Kate Spade wanted a high-fashion, glamorous shoot for the holiday 2015 campaign, so Karlie Kloss was the natural selection. Photographed with fashion writer Derek Blasberg and even her dog Joe, the campaign was the embodiment of a chic evening out in New York.
With the fashion, styling, and accessorizing, the whole Kate Spade holiday 2015 shoot has a classic luxe vibe, played perfectly against Karlie Kloss’s classic beauty. Kloss’s on-camera intensity really shows off Kate Spade’s fabulous accessories. The photoshoot features a plain white background (besides the cab photos) and it could not have been more perfect. Kloss is absolutely radiant against the simple background, really emphasizing her best features and the stylish accessories.
Kate Spade really wanted to celebrate the holidays, and so the campaign did just that. A luscious shot with silver streamers and a bow celebrate the gorgeous watch on her wrist, and cause us to celebrate with her, wanting a taste of the high society lifestyle the whole shoot portrays. It’s a fun collection, and with such a classic beauty you can’t go wrong.
The addition of Kloss’s dog Joe also served to bring everything together; the love of a dog, the high class New York evening, champagne, streamers, and luxe accessories all play together to show the lifestyle of the character Kloss is playing, which is also the ideal woman for Kate Spade’s campaign. The perfect handbag is an essential accessory for any woman, and is just as important as the smile and personality she portrays.
There is a distinctly American portrayal of this campaign. The whole photoshoot was created in New York, with the backdrop in the classic New York taxi cab, and even on the white background the colors shine through. The apparel is navy, with the exception of a chic black fur overcoat. The lipstick and nail polish is red, popping against the white and also representing the colors of the American flag.
The featured patterns of the apparel are reminiscent of traditional clothes, and exude the perfect balance between restraint and sensuality. The life is breathed in by Kloss herself, really vamping the looks. As a model, Kloss is stunning as always, and anything she is wearing in the shots would make any woman swoon, which is lucky for us, since the featured accessories will be available for purchase from Kate Spade.
You can clearly see the fun story the campaign was trying to tell, from the trip to the party, to the event itself, and all the way to the taxi ride home. You can see the clear progression as Karlie Kloss has a bit of champagne and poses with her dog, and her expressions loosening up by the end of the photoshoot.
All of the storyline aside, Karlie Kloss is never seen without a fabulous look by Kate Spade. From the classic party dresses to the fabulous jewelry and handbags, and all the way to the festive streamers, she looks stunning. And we just have to wait until the collection is released for purchase to spice up our holiday looks.
