The collection is inspired by Kate Spade's home, New York City. Each watch is named after a Big Apple landmark. The Carousel Bangle, a gorgeous bracelet with a clock face, comes in fun, candy colors, but my favorite is the gold polka dots, Gold Confetti. The Delacorte Bangle is a little thicker and is etched with pretty gold designs. The Gramercy, Gramercy Crystal, Gramercy Grand, Seaport and Seaport Grand are old-school basics, like the locations they were named for, but are on trend with the oversized look that is popular now and come in gold, silver and bronze. The Metro has a classic round face and thin leather strap. It's convenient and practical, just like everybody's favorite form of public transportation! I love the Gold Spade and Pink pieces. The Cooper has a delicate square face and comes as a strap, or with classic, ladylike links. The Parsons is available as a strap or with links, and embraces its namesake with an artistic square design. The Waldorf also comes with links or a strap, and looks elegant, like the hotel with a crystal edge.
The watches are fun and feminine, consistent with Kate Spade's current direction. The bangle watches feature sweet messages like "Kick Up Your Heels," and the classic watches come with the option of a cute pink spade. I really love that another trusted designer is getting in on the watch game and think I may have to pick one up for myself!
