Editor’s note: Kate Spade announced in early 2015 that all its Kate Spade Saturday stores were shutting down. If you still want to find the brand, check out Poshmark for used Kate Spade Saturday pieces.
Kate Spade, purveyor of all things cute, colorful and cheery, sympathizes—and this spring is launching a brand-new line “meant to capture the spirit of Saturday every day of the week,” according to the company’s president, Craig Leavitt. The new venture’s name? Kate Spade Saturday, of course.

According to Women’s Wear Daily, the line will include apparel, swimwear, handbags, jewelry, eyewear, shoes and home décor and be priced at about 50 percent less than most Kate Spade New York goodies, in keeping with the younger clientele it’s targeting (think ages 25 to 35, as opposed to the 30-to-40-year-olds KSNY attracts). Expect to shell out about $90 for most clothing in the collection; $55 for eyewear; $85 for shoes; $30 for jewelry; $25 for home goods and $50 for watches.
But don’t call Saturday a diffusion line—it won’t actually be sold in Kate Spade New York stores, nor in the Kate Spade section of your favorite department store. Rather, the vertical venture will be available in the United States at Saturday.com and in Japan at Saturday.jp, as well as at a freestanding flagship in Tokyo. Fingers crossed for an NYC brick-and-mortar shortly thereafter… Until Saturday finally rolls around, click through for a first look at what’s to come from this exciting new brand. For our part, we’re planning to snatch up those half-moon handbags and two-tone pumps.
