We loved Kate Spade's presentation for AW13. In a set dressed with Yellow Taxi's and Neon lights, the models looked like they had stepped out of the Sex and the City prologue- The Carrie Diaries.

Thinking back to last year, I suspect the return of the polka dots has something to do with the collaboration of Yayoi Kusama and Louis Vuitton for the spotted collection.
