Kate Spade Collaborates with Current/Elliot | New Westward Capsule Bag Collection

Posted on: Jul 12

Westward BagDeborah Lloyd, Kate Spade's creative director and president, has teamed up with Emily Current and Meritt Elliot of denim brand Current/Elliot for the Westward capsule collection.

This is one of the more unlikely designer collaborations we've seen. Kate Spade is famous for its conservative retro style, while Current/Elliot items ooze casual California cool.

However one look at this ostrich embossed satchel tells me this unlikely match may be one made in heaven. It has the structured look Kate Spade loves, but the weathered leather and antique hardware gives the purse a more relaxed feel. The design could have become confused, but the opposing influences actually work really well together.

Westward's debut collection is relatively small line, with just six bags in all. Hopefully that means the creative brain's trust has made each accessory right with some serious attention to the details.

If you were hoping this capsule collection would be a cheap and cheerful one, you're out of luck. While the bags start at a relatively affordable $245 the most luxurious models top $1295.

We should see the Westward handbags appearing in stores next month. Will you be rushing out to see the other bags in the collection, or would you rather stick with the Kate Spade we all know and love?
