Deborah Lloyd, Chief Creative Officer, Kate Spade & Company also expressed her delight on the collaboration, “I couldn’t think of a better partner than Gap to collaborate with on a children’s collection. Their colorful and playful spirit aligns perfectly with ours and they’ve helped us realize our vision of dressing little ones head to toe in kate spade new york and Jack Spade for their next big adventure.”

Focusing on a child’s carefree sense of adventure and excitement, the collection follows a brother and sister imagining their way through a magical journey to grandmother’s house during the holiday season.
