kate spade new york may have held its Fall 2018 presentation in New York – one of the world's most famous cities – but the girl that the collection channelled was not so much Carrie Bradshaw than it was Dolly Parton.
With 2018 marking the brand's 25th anniversary, kate spade new york is bringing its girl on a year-long road trip across the States to celebrate. Their first stop? The great South.
Just for the country-inspired collection, the brand transformed Manhattan's Masonic Hall — the historic meeting place of a notorious secret society — to capture the spirit of Nashville. While kate spade muse Dolly Parton herself was absent, the presentation was enriched with a live performance by the American folk-pop trio JOSEPH. Staying true to its theme, the collection featured flowy prairie dresses, denim and leather midi A-line skirts, and the occasional cow print. There were also lots of boots — from pairs embroidered with floral stitching to ankle-high ones with glittery studs.
