The fashion world may be looking ahead to winter, but Kate Spade reminds us that we haven't seen the last of summer yet with this Lawn Party purse.
The Lawn Party strikes the balance between Kate Spade's conservative side and her more whimsical nature. Its large flower is playful but also on trend. It's the latest in a long line of purses just like it, which may disappoint some fashion fans.
But while Kate Spade hasn't pushed the envelope here, I think she's done enough to make me take another look. The straw body is inspired; it gives each petal structure while making the Lawn Party seem a bit more summery. The version with the natural and black straw also looks quite trippy, although I think I prefer this more classic black one.
Whichever one you choose, you'll need to remember that this is a bitsy purse so space is very limited. It's really meant for lawn parties, those high class occasions where drinks are free, chauffeurs are provided, and you need only worry about having a lipstick on hand for emergency touchups. Modern misses may struggle with that limited space, but if you know how to travel light you'll appreciate the freedom a purse like this one offers.
I probably wouldn't mind a purse that I could only carry on occasion if it was affordable, but at $195 I'm not sure Kate Spade is giving us enough bag for our dollar.
