Deborah Lloyd, creative director of Kate Spade New York, has a unique way of approaching each collection. Before she commences and works on the elaborate design process, Lloyd carefully sifts through her mood board – a selection of amazing travel images and photographic keepsakes from her last vacation. “For summer, we are heading to Mexico. Our collection will be inspired by the artful flair of Frida Kahlo, carnations, traditional Mexican wedding dresses, hummingbirds, piñatas, cacti and a few friendly desert-dwelling critters eliciting a celebratory mood,” says Lloyd.
While that’s something we can’t wait to see, we’re thrilled with the brand’s current Spring collection. Here, Lloyd shares with us the whimsical memories from a trip to Morocco that inspired it.
