Over the years there have been some pretty iconic duos in the fashion industry: Yves Saint Laurent and Pierre Bergé, Gianni and Donatella Versace, Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana, Carol Lim and Humberto Leon, Viktor Horsting and Rolf Snoeren… And now, Tom and Jerry. Kate Spade New York is ushering in the Year of the Rat with a line of ready-to-wear and accessories inspired by the playful relationship between the two beloved cartoon characters.
The Chinese New Year collection showcases a mirthful Jerry mouse motif against the brand’s signature floral spade motif on a range of classic Kate Spade silhouettes, such as a mini backpack, a top-handle canteen bag, a chain wallet, and a shopper tote (complete with a cheese tag), along with small leather goods like a bifold wallet, a north south phone crossbody, a magnetic wrap phone case, and a round key fob.
Flushed with vibrant shades of red and pink, these accessories are not just cute, but also environmentally friendly, thanks to the predominant use of vegan leather. Other pieces in the collaborative capsule include a t-shirt and a sweatshirt made from 100% cotton, and a pendant, bangle, and pair of earrings in gold-plated metal with red and black accents.
The Kate Spade New York x Tom & Jerry collection is available in stores now
