Kate Spade | Cannes Handbag
When I came across this bag, I said to myself it’s about time for a new Kate Spade collection. This new straightforward collection is titled Cannes. Named after Cannes the geographical scene, which is located on the Mediterranean shoreline of France, which was once fishing village that turned into an international resort. This Cannes collection offers glamorous jewel-tones satin bags, that come in your choice of classic black, chocolate brown, kelly green, snow white, or pumpkin orange. I was looking forward to the spring / summer collection with the recent Resort and Cruise collections finally hitting the stores, so I was a bit saddened when I noticed the colors of this collection were foliage like hues. I know it’s only like a week or two into the winter season, but I prefer bright or colorful patterns, like the ones in other designers Cruise collections. You can’t complain too much though, this collection is very simple in pattern and design, nothing too extreme or over-the-top.
At this moment in time the Cannes collection is available in the smaller going out classic favorite shapes, which are perfect to carry around only your essential items like lipstick, cards, and cell phone.
