Kate Spade Saturday Closing Its Doors

Kate Spade announced yesterday that it will be closing the brick-and-mortar stores and ecommerce sites of its sister and brother brands Kate Spade Saturday and Jack Spade to focus solely on the original line. This news came as quite a shock to many, as Saturday was celebrating new store openings as late as the fourth quarter in 2014, and just released their collaboration collection with New Balance as well as a collaboration earlier this month with West Elm. Needless to say, the two collections are quickly selling out.

The two lines are expected to be fully phased out by the second half of 2015. The Saturday line was launched just two years ago as a lower priced line targeted at a younger audience. It managed to maintain the pop and fun of the Kate Spade brand, but apparently did not succeed in attracting a large enough customer base. The line will now be absorbed back into the Kate Spade New York line and sold in Kate Spade stores, although there have be doubts about maintaining Saturday's lovable lower price range.

Hopefully Saturday will be more successful once integrated into the Kate Spade New York line, and will keep offering the spunky playful patterns and pieces it is known and loved for.

Don't miss your chance to snag your favorite Saturday and Jack Spade items now! Or just plan ahead for potentially excellent sales...
