Kate Spade Yuma Ida Tote | Layered Fringe Handbag in Nappa Leather

59 sec read

When I think of Kate Spade, fringed leather isn’t exactly what comes to mind. In fact, it’s probably one of the furthest things from what I’m thinking, which is usually adjectives like classic or sophisticated.

That’s why I had to blink a few times before believing that this flashy, fringey number was indeed a Kate Spade original. It’s not that bright colors are out of the ordinary for the designer. She’s been known to use shocking shades of orange, green, pink, and other unsubtle colors. No, the deep turquoise blue isn’t surprising; it’s the swishy, snazzy design that throws me off a bit.

That’s not to say that I don’t like it, though. It makes me think of a sexy samba or a flapper-style tap dance. Being a former dancer myself, I can’t help but associate the fringe with dance costumes. Combine the movement of the tote with the modern style, and you’ve got a seriously unique look.

Because of the visual impact of the fringe, I like how Kate Spade kept everything else on the Yuma Ida simple. There’s a limited amount of hardware thanks to the simple style of the cutout handles, which might not be terribly practical but are certainly chic. Even the logo plate is made from a matching turquoise leather square. This fun and fashionable Ida tote retails for $395.
