The placement may be curious, but Kate Spade’s new Big D outpost offers all the signature color-splashed whimsy you’d expect from the label, once you pass through the front door.
Open just two weeks at 3120 Knox Street, Kate Spade New York sits in a row with On The Border, Crate & Barrel, and The Mattress Firm. The freestanding space builds on the brand’s existing North Texas presence at NorthPark Center and Paragon Outlets in Grand Prairie.
Inside, a black-and-white chevron striped floor accents a front room filled with bright totes, bow-accented pumps, and enamel bangles. Pass through to room two for dresses, denim, fragrances, and a sitting area complete with a full-length mirror. Throughout the jewel box-like boutique, playful flourishes – neon Lucite display signs, fashion-related library books – evoke the brand’s signature style.
Knox Street regulars will note that this spot was most recently occupied by Original Octane, now relocated around the corner on Travis Street. Though the décor and gift-heavy strip is hardly predictable territory for a new designer women’s boutique, Kate Spade delivers a fun break for neighborhood browsers and buyers alike.
