We know its name and repertoire ever so fondly and now the 'spade' in kate spade new york is getting its own spin-off — eponymously named Spade Flower Jacquard Collection. Creative director Nicola Glass reconvenes the iconic symbol that has adorned every accessory from the New York label since its beginnings, by channeling the Queen of Hearts in a spade flower motif.

Since her appointment in 2018, Glass made headway in evolving the brand, while still remaining firmly rooted in iconic design elements across the house's categories of ready-to-wear, handbags, jewellery, footwear, and home. "So many brands look for a symbol to define themselves, and kate spade new york has one of the strongest: the spade. I began working on all types of treatments to cleverly integrate the spade into colorful patterns and playful embellishments, as well as functional closures," she mused.

You'll find every bag in this collection splayed with the spade flower pattern — either boldly and subtly — while intertwined with quirky fruit prints, textures of leather embossing, the occasional racing stripes, and cut-out design details. Upon closer inspection, you'll find the motif itself formed by using four spades that resembles the shape of a clover. A clever play on the unassuming symbol it seems — with Glass' creative interpretation at hand to prove there are more tricks and possibilities that the spade has up its sleeve.

Silhouettes go from roomy totes to handy cross-body bags, all of which are specially coaxed with the famed Italian textile mill, Limonta (est. 1893). Not only are they durable to withstand heavyweight items like your working laptop, but also perfectly easy to wipe clean for everyday use.
