a cult blog and character whose fun adventures new york city's art and fashion scenes have gained a global following, darcel disappoints is the alter ego of sought after illustrator craig redman. it became a creative outlet of sorts for his observations of the big apple after a move from his native australia. fashion brand kate spade has now created a special new york collection based on the adventures of katie, a darcelized downtown gal who is as comfortable eating hot dogs as she is knocking back glasses of dom pérignon. both darcel disappoints and kate spade celebrate crisp colours, graphic prints and playful sophistication, and this is evident in the eye-catching collection that celebrates the city. the collection contains a wide range of accessories, from wallets to jewellery, watches, bags, shoes and ready-to-wear, all covered in darcel's signature pop new york iconography.
