Kate Spade New York’s Lobster Crossbody and Crab Bag for Spring 2018

Since it’s Friday, or, as I’d like to call it, “Friday Funday”, I thought it would be appropriate to feature something fun. And, when I think fun, the first thing that comes to mind, is Kate Spade New York‘s whimsical designs, or, what the brand refers to, as their “novelty bags”. Since Spring is just around the corner, I’m giving you a heads-up on what the brand has in store for us, and also because I know that many of the brand’s novelty bag collectors out there who look forward to the season’s offerings. For the upcoming season, the brand takes us to the sea with the Lobster Crossbody and the Small Crab Lottie bags. Hmm, perhaps you seafood lovers might also find these adorable?

Personally, I prefer the more three-dimensionally designed lobster. I’ve found some to be too heavy, while some were quite impractical due to the small openings that made it hard to retrieve your things from your bag, and others just weren’t roomy enough to even keep your essentials, but with the zipper on the side of the lobster it’s quite easy to access the contents of your bag. Oh, and although it comes with a detachable gold snake-chain strap so that you can wear it as a crossbody bag, I’d rather carry it as a clutch because I find it much more adorable this way.

The Small Crab Lottie, on the other hand, is more, well, what I call, “bag-like”. I guess this is why I prefer the Lobster. Though this may be so, I think it’s quite clever to turn one of the brand’s classic styles (the “Lottie”) into something more cutesy by adding crab claws and a kiss-lock closure which becomes the crab’s eyes, don’t you think?
