Such A Bummer: Kate Spade Saturday Is Closing For Good

It’s only been about two years since Kate Spade launched its lower-priced, just-as-playful-and-colorful line, Kate Spade Saturday — giving us further reason to appreciate the weekends. But sadly, the company announced this morning that it will be shuttering the diffusion label within the first half of 2015.  According to The Wall Street Journal, Kate Spade not only plans to shut down its short-lived label to focus on Kate Spade New York, but it's closing up shop on menswear label Jack Spade, as well. The line created by Andy Spade in 1997, however, will continue to be sold online. The store closings seem pretty sudden: Saturday locations continued to pop up throughout 2014, as Fashionista reports, and exciting collaborations were just recently announced. Fashionista also clarifies that the Saturday aesthetic will be absorbed into Kate Spade New York (not necessarily its lovable prices, though). In a statement, the brand says it's moving into "a new business leverage the distribution network of its retail partners and expand its e-commerce platform." This news follows right behind the announcement of Piperlime's closing, and marks yet another difficult goodbye to a store and site we love to peruse. Stock up on the home decor, colorful handbags, and that New Balance collaboration while you can. Saturday ends for good by mid-year. More style scoop:
