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.
anna kendrick stole the show hosting SNL in our madison ave. collection hallis dress
April 7th, 2014 § § permalink
for her SNL debut this past weekend, actress anna kendrick channeled her inner princess with a witty opening monologue (set to the tune of “belle” from beauty and the beast) and our madison ave. collection hallis dress—a shiny silk twill fit and flare made for a spin under the spotlight.
we love how anna accessorized with just classic black pumps: it lets the dress’ finest details—an exposed zipper and cutaway shoulders—really shine.

leave it to two broke girls’ co-star beth behrs to up the (sparkle) ante for the 40th annual people’s choice awards this week: she wore the estelle dress from our holiday collaboration with swarovski elements. crafted from more tiny, shiny swarovski crystals than we’ve ever been able to count in one sitting, the limited-edition piece, available only at our madison avenue flagship shop in nyc, pairs perfectly with her metallic heels and a shiny cocktail ring. because, after all, we’ve always believed a girl can never have too much sparkle.

there was more than one stylish lady wearing kate spade new york at the glastonbury music festival. (and we love how they wore it all!)
July 11th, 2013 § § permalink
in the ultimate mixes of fancy and casual, some of our favorite british style mavens set out for their days at the glastonbury music festival last month with their own unique spin on some of our favorite pieces.
we’re inspired by the way poppy layered the gold foil floral shannon top over a sleek black bra and denim shorts; how bip ling teamed the gingham broome street jacket with psychedelic sunnies, and the way suki waterhouse teamed the fancy blanche silk frock with a leather moto jacket and booties.

we’ve long admired the way solange knowles effortlessly epitomizes so many things we love–from bold patterns and vivid hues to playfully bright lipstick. during the coachella festival she was a vision in yellow wearing our ila floral heels, which she mixed with a citrus-print dress.
jessica alba makes traveling in style look like a breeze
April 11th, 2013 § § permalink
how to elevate a travel-friendly outfit (think crisp khakis, easy-to-layer lightweight knit) jessica alba-style: simply add a boldly printed bag. it might seem counter-intutive (prints? limited wardrobe selection?), but note how the colors of our grove court floral thea tote complement the ones she’s wearing. globetrotters take note: simple separates and a statement day bag make for a no-fail wardrobe on the go.
