introducing the star of our upcoming holiday campaign..and more!
October 22nd, 2014 § § permalink
talk about exciting news! this morning one of our favorite leading ladies, anna kendrick, revealed on twitter that she’s the star of our holiday campaign. (we bonded over our shared love of witty banter, living perfectly imperfect and sparkly shoes.)
it’s the beginning of a yearlong friendship between us and the clever actress and singer, who’ll be be our storytelling muse throughout 2015, too. so stay (digitally) tuned over the course of next year as she inspires us to indulge our passions, be the star of our own lives, and with incandescent charm surprise and delight those around us.
as for holiday: in the middle of all the glamour, high rollers and wild cards on the set of the holiday campaign shoot in las vegas with photographer cedric buchet, she razzle dazzled us with a game of 20 questions. hers is an interesting life, well lived, with many stories to tell.
we’re all ears.

August 20th, 2013 § § permalink
we have a hard time keeping secrets. (we just love to share the good news.)
but for the past ten months, we’ve been working with the cfda/vogue fashion fund and five talented young designers on a mentorship project.
go behind the scenes to read about one extra special part of the initiative now on vogue.com — as one of those designers, joseph altuzarra, got to produce his first full-page ad for the september issue of vogue, on newsstands now. (yes, that is the stunning british model stella tennant that you see with him in the photos.)
and then click back here on monday to watch our exclusive three-part webisode series for the full story and to meet all of the very talented designers.
congratulations joseph and the altuzarra team!
we've composed a little visual of what our new perfume, live colorfully, smells like
April 2nd, 2013 § § permalink
get a whiff of this: we scoured the city’s farmers’ markets and flower stands and rounded up the full, complex spectrum of notes in our new live colorfully fragrance–in their original form–to provide you with a pretty peek at the ingredients list.
with spring in full bloom, the sent of tahitian vanilla beans and zesty mandarin peels–plus blooming gardenias and sprinkles of star anise–is just what we’re craving. you too? visit our facebook page for a complimentary sample of the scent, or purchase a (quite stunning) bottle of it here.
bold top notes: sparkling mandarin, pink water lily, star anise
playful heart: tiare flower, golden gardenia, coconut water
sophisticated base: sheer amber, radiant musk, tahitian vanilla

another reason we love perusing our stacks of march fashion glossies

we love snail mail. imagine our delight, then, when we opened up our mailbox to find this month’s crop of fashion glossies and spotted our new live colorfully fragrance campaign splashed across the pages of the march issue of elle.
the stunning katie fogarty (the face of our new campagin) looks vividly chic in a classic cat eye, bright colorblocked separates and our favorite finishing touch, a well-placed, bow — a fitting tribute for our new fragrance launching april 1st.
behind-the-scenes snaps from our special soiree toasting our latest fragrance
February 20th, 2013 § § permalink
with just over a month to go till our newest fragrance, live colorfully, arrives in shops on april 1st, kate spade new york creative director deborah lloyd hosted a spirited soiree in new york city’s chelsea district–our favorite for all things artsy and vibrant–during nyfw.
one of our favorite ways we describe the scent is that it dances on the skin like light on a prism. (the idea of prisms also inspired the decadent bottle.)
as if bringing that idea to life, ladies like jamie king, langley fox hemingway, audrey gelman, oh land, and katie fogarty–the lovely face of our fragrance campaign–danced the night away amid glowing neon signs, swirling disco lights, and a glitter-dusted dance floor to a very special dj set by london fashion blogger, dj and model bip ling (looking sharp in our bow-bedecked ruthie cardigan).
stay tuned for more live colorfully news!
