 What does the weekend look like for you? For Kate Spade's new offshoot brand, Saturday, the anticipation of a day of leisure is channeled through a collection of graphic, linear, pragmatic designs with a Modernist Pop Art angle. Fun, strong well-design shapes make their impression in the casual lifestyle collection that combines  women's clothing and accessories, travel basics, tabletop and soft goods. I can't help but notice the proliferation of on-trend black and white, it dominates their designs.
The line made it's debut in a Tokyo retail shop and is available in the US through Saturday. Because isn't the best day of the week deserving of it's own fresh finds?

 Wearable and snappy, the Zig Zag Everyday Shift is part of a range of clothing done in the Signature Zig Zag print that pervades the assortment.

I love a good slip on in the summer with a classic shift dress. These slides in the Windowpane Check are so easy breezy.

Wear fun on your wrist with the Jump Around Bracelet that looks like licorice candies all in a row.

Pillow Cover in Signature Zig Zag of cotton canvas peps up a sofa in seconds flat.

Pillow Cover in the Windowpane Check for the minimalist - minded.

It's time for the beach with the two-sided beach towel you won't miss on the sand.

For the table, mix pure white and ebony for visual impact.  Napkins, plates and mugs keep the pattern play going.

Saturday Morning Mug, in the signature ZZ with a low profile and retro feel.

The Windowpane Check version is a bit more toned down.

Deco meets Pop Art in the Half Circle Stacking Mugs, one of the defining moments of the assortment.

Turn tea into a Modernist masterpiece with the Everyday Teapot of matte black and white stoneware.

Choose from tall or short clear glasses in a crisp Windowpane check.
A black rim and white center on the Full Circle Stacking Accent Plates make the case for eating your vegetables.

Stacking Bowls recall Vignelli's classic Heller plastic version created in 1964.

Keep your passport visible in your bag by encasing it in the Fantastic Elastic Passport Holder in the Signature ZZ pattern with yellow elastic closure.

Take to the friendly skies with a catchy striped neck rest and eye mask.

Get your game on and play.

Big Tic Tac Toe Set, great for gifting.

Pull this notebook out in a meeting and get nods of approval. The Slim Notebook with windowpane-ruled pages in Signature Zig Zag with yellow fabric edge is styling.

The black and white geometrical designs are so sophisticated. I love when they pair it with a bold color!
