Rain is not all gray and gloom. 

When we hunch under our umbrellas or scoff at a downpour engulfing us, we shy away from the joy in rain. Rain makes new beginnings. It washes away dust, dirt or whatever debris might be in its way. It gives life to plants. It pools in puddles to happily splash in. 

This is the philosophy Kate Spade New York’s new creative leads have infused into the Spring 2023 collection. This season marks not only Tom Mora and Jennifer Lyu’s debut for the brand, but it’s also Kate Spade New York’s return to New York Fashion Week since the beginning of the pandemic. (Mora will head up ready-to-wear, footwear, jewelry, home and lifestyle categories; while Liu will lead handbags and accessories.)
