Mother’s Day Gift Ideas: The Kate Spade Edition

Mother’s Day is just a week away! If you’re still looking for the perfect gift for Mummy Dearest, here are some of my picks from Kate Spade.

For the Working Mum 

Shoreline Perry, RM 1,540

With the “Shoreline Perry”, your mummy will basically have 2 looks in 1. The foldover top is a more polished look that can be used as a handbag for the workplace. And once day turns to night, all she has to do is to detach the long shoulder strap, and voila! it’s practically a new bag, and even a change in the silhouette!  The bag is now elongated slightly, and the oval-shaped detail now doubles as a handle for a more casual look for post-work drinks. If not, keep it the way it is sans shoulder strap, and you have an oversized foldover clutch! So wait, that’s not 2 but THREE looks in one bag!

Signature Spade Leather, RM 1,880

While the Shoreline Perry is certainly versatile, this “Signature Spade Leather” shoulder bag is slightly more Boston-esque in shape, and more office-friendly especially if she’s in a corporate environment. Though it’s a more serious look compared to the Shoreline Perry, but the red injects more fun, and less “blah” than if it were to be in say, black or nude.

For the Trendy Mum, meet the “Sunny Hills Ellie”, a bag which certainly lives up to its name! Right on trend with the neon yellow, and so fun to colour block with! Made of matte vinyl coloured jelly, it has Summer Lovin written all over it!

For the Elegant Mum, think Charlotte in Sex and the City. I don’t know about you, but that’s the vibe I get when I see this bag. The “Wicker Park Little Sherri” will be mummy’s perfect companion for casual shopping days, lunching with girlfriends, or even a walk in the park, and a stroll with daddy dearest along the beach.

For the Vivacious Mum with Personality, I have 2 picks for you!

First up, the Florence Broadhurst for Kate Spade’s “Bon Shopper in Flo Coral Cockatoo” print is super fun! In Lacqured Cotton it may be (think coated canvas/jacquard) but it’s an artist edition Limited Edition, and super affordable, so ’nuff said!

Last, but certainly not the least, is my FAVE out of everything featured here,  the “Birds of Paradise Harmony” is for a mum who loves prints and has a quirky sense of style. The embroidery work on the straw is just amazing! And again, given that it’s straw, mum will be on trend for summer!
