I’ve been a fan of preppy, whimsical and girly American brand Kate Spade for years now. Known for witty wordings, polka dot patterns and gilded details. Launching on the 15th of March is it’s first super-sweet tableware collection in the UK with John Lewis.
I guess what has always attracted me to the brand is it’s witty Gossip Girl vibe – its refined but flirty aesthetic and references to the good life. Like life should be all about brunching from your best mint green china and spending afternoons being seen sipping cocktails from gold polka dotted highballs.
