Summer 2021 Collection: Strut down the runway with playful prints and with sustainability in mind

by Grace Sundram

The Summer 2021 Collection is a celebration of the city coming into full bloom. We’re inspired by the everyday beauties noticed while walking to the bodega, to dine alfresco in the village, or out to meet friends for an aperitif: daisies springing up in the sidewalk, vines flourishing along a brick wall, and bumblebees adding their buzz of excitement. Maybe even some dancing in the streets. Everything feels organic yet purposeful, in just the right amounts to make you smile, everyone working together to make things a little better.

Although we do celebrate summer all day, every day here in Malaysia, it’s going to be a celebration as the city will be coming into full bloom real soon. With Kate Spades newest collection, the fashion mega house was inspired by



Handbags and SLGs feature classic summer textures and playful prints, like dots, checks, and stripes. We love playing with a mix of prints grounded alongside graphic colours and new neutrals. A deep, moody green called ‘forest night’ is juxtaposed against bright ‘crushed watermelon’ and ‘loquat’ yellow, and sits alongside shades of ‘parchment’ and ‘lava red.’ Seasonal fabrications like wicker, canvas, nylon and jacquard give each style a unique look and feel.

This season, our Spade Flower Jacquard collection debuts in a new green colourway trimmed with matching leather, giving the new styles a rich monochromatic look. This updated assortment continues our collaboration with famed Italian mill and jacquard innovator Limonta (est. 1893).


New for the season, we are re-releasing the original Sam, with sustainability in mind. As we work to be better for our planet, The Little Better Nylon group is made with recycled materials in the shell and the lining. The collection plays with a mix of brand codes and nods back to our heritage in a modern way, with stripes, dots, scattered daisies and embroidery details, all available in three sizes: mini, medium and large.

Smile is our key fashion silhouette: a feminine shoulder bag available in bold gingham prints that will have you grinning ear-to-ear.


Lane, a new pebbled satchel with fantastic functionality, available in two sizes and five colourways, has something for everyone. Our Knott satchel, a core group first seen in Spring, has three new silhouettes: an elevated open tote and two new crossbodies, all of which are available in a woven gingham canvas and pebbled leather.


In novelty, we have a 3D leather crossbody–Dottie, a charming ladybug–as well as a moulded leather bumble bee called Buzz.


In wicker, we see Hopkins, a beautifully crafted frog, along with a honey-pot-shaped crossbody, scattered with daisies and a bumblebee.



Ready-to-wear highlights easy pieces this season–easy to move in, easy to work in and most importantly, easy to live in. Versatile dresses and separates complement any woman’s own unique shape, mixing comfort and function, making her ready for all occasions.


Well-loved brand codes shine through in playful, feminine details like ruffles, smocking, defined waists and voluminous sleeves. Dresses continue to be key, created in light and breezy fabrics and a variety of prints: gingham in mini and exploded scales, botanical florals and daisy dots are shown on new shapes and silhouettes that can take you from the farmer’s market to a summer wedding.



Jewellery nods to nature and reflects the season’s themes of blooming and resilience. Miosotis is a group of delicate floral earrings, bracelets and pendants that can be worn layered together or alone. Nature Walk is a subtle nod to all things growing around us, featuring sweet details like flowers and frogs. Inspired by a compass, the My Medallions group is our north star. Earrings, bracelets and pendants have luxe chain details and are perfectly balanced in scale.



Casual, wearable, go-anywhere styles are seen in warm-weather textures that reflect seasonal themes of gingham, spade flower jacquard and daisy dots. We introduce Lilah, a new sophisticated, feminine, low heel slide, finished with an easy knot and available in seasonal colours, like lava red, and signature dotted prints. Additional favourites include Panama Nights, an easy mid-heel wedge espadrille slingback, and La Danse, our go-to sandal, in leather all over and complete with raffia tassels. There are new takes on the iconic gladiator sandal and jelly sandals complete with a ladybug charm.

Fashion Accessories

Fashion accessories add the finishing touch to our summer collection–from silky scarves in the season’s colour combinations and distinctive prints to raffia and spade flower jacquard bucket hats.


Graphic colours and playful prints that tie back to handbags and ready-to-wear make even our smallest everyday devices special.
