Kate Spade won't be shopping for its little sister Saturday's colorful new LA abode anytime soon. Although staff at the lower-priced label's West 3rd Street boutique were told that the shop was simply relocating, our sister site reveals that its parent label has decided to shutter all U.S. stores for its sibling brands, including Jack Spade.
As originally reported by the Wall Street Journal, New York-based Kate Spade will absorb its sister label as a sub-brand under its own name, while menswear brand Jack Spade will become an e-shop (third-party retailers will continue to stock its merch in stores). No word yet on who'll take Saturday's West 3rd space and Jack Spade's store on Abbot Kinney, which moved a few doors away from its original outpost and is slated to close on or around Saturday, February 21st.
