September 3, 2014, NYC - JACK SPADE’s Spring Collection explores interactions of color and its ability, through careful application, to lend sophistication and harmony. Minimalist painter Josef Albers understood that color is relationship: one to another, a pattern to its frame, the eye to the mind. Even simple blocks of it, placed with care, can create a whole greater than the sum of its parts.
Design Director Todd Magill was also inspired by the mix of Sport and Classic American sportswear. "I see a lot of guys on the streets mixing their sport gear with their work clothes. Ultimately, the collection is about ‘urban utility’ so you can look good in transitional moments, like when you are in between work and running to or from the gym and then out to meet friends."
Bags are paired down and minimal with function and utility designed into the interior, while "Floral Camo" and “Chambray Floral” prints pack just the right amount of punch. Key fabrications include technical packable nylon, as seen in a trench and blazer that are lightweight enough to roll up and throw in your bag.
Artist Ian Hundley designed a special navy grid print for a capsule collection of bags and several apparel pieces inspired by aerial maps of the streets of New York.
