Kate Spade New York x Darcel Fall 2013. ALL PHOTOS: KATE SPADE
Known for charting the “highs and lows of life in a big city” in his Darcel Disappoints webcomic, Redman puts the city dweller’s insouciance aside for a campy celebration of all things New York.
Featuring the ubiquitous yellow taxis, apples and all the little things we love about New York – hot dogs included – these loud-as-you-can-get accessories are not for the wallflower, that’s for sure.
From pretzels on handbags to a doughnut-shaped bangle, we find most of these pieces almost too cute to resist.
So shout your love for the iconic city with these weird and wonderful new accessories; we won’t blame you if you’re tempted to take them all home.
The Kate Spade New York x Darcel Fall 2013 collection is available in Singapore stores from August 5, 2013. Prices start from $100 for small accessories to $520 for handbags.
