Swarovski brings glitter to Kate Spade holiday collection

The New York City-based fashion brand has teamed up with Swarovski for a holiday new collection. 

Kate Spade has unveiled a new collection set to brighten up this holiday season with a bit of crystal magic, courtesy of Swarovski Elements. 

Pieces include a 'fit and flare' dress, elbow-length gloves, a crystal-covered version of the Reese short and a pavé bow collar necklace and matching cuff. Prices start at $158 (for the t-shirts) and go up to $3,298 (for the crystal jacket). 

"2013 is the year of things we love, and since the month of November celebrates ‘all that glitters,' Swarovski was a natural partner for us. Swarovski's penchant for sparkle paired with our playfully chic approach to occasion dressing allowed us to create a dazzling, festive holiday collection," said president and chief creative officer Deborah Lloyd.

The collection launches at the brand's Madison Avenue flagship in New York and on katespade.com Thursday, with a special cityscape window display at the store highlighting pieces from the collection.
