Ad genius: Kate Spade

Mary Quant lives! The best ad in the whole magazine (Elle September '09), and the most eye catching one I've seen in forever. Kate's been doing some interesting things color-wise for a while, but I've had trouble warming up to her palette. Perhaps it's the addition of these very large polka dots that pushed me over the edge.

This supports my observation (completely unscientific) that orange is the new pink. It is everywere, but not so much that it's obnoxious. One of the best things about it is how great it looks next to pinks, particularly berry pinks.

I can feel a photo essay on orange and pink coming on!
