Dispatches from Spring '11: Jack Spade

A light, breathable, warm-weather tweed for those early "extended winter" months of spring.

This morning, Jack Spade gave the editors of Gilt MANual a sneak peek at its offerings for spring and summer 2011. Appropriately enough—given the bone-chilling wind blowing down Crosby Street, where the entire neighborhood had seemingly overslept (ahem, Saturdays?)—the label peppered its collection with decidedly un-spring-like tones (dark blues and grays) and fabrics (heavy, treated cottons and tweeds). This isn’t to say that the typically playful line has gone all somber, and plans on following winter south. The wax-dipped canvas totes still sport orange and yellow dyes, and some Pegleg-like color-blocking (the two brands have a bit of a guerilla history) even found its way into the collection via hoodie pockets and ’90s, Polo-inspired outerwear.

A wallet for that mushroom aficionado in your life. Or you.

Channeling the '90s Polo vibe with a light (in color and weight) parka.

A motley collection of stamps to grace your money holder.
