Leave it to Kate Spade to make mittens this irresistible! The tongue-in-cheek sayings turn a practical item into the most fun winter statement.

if i lived in a place where cabs were a necessity, i would so rock the yellow gloves! for now, i'll settle on the adorable white ones.

I love these mittens and KS! I need to get the yellow ones when we go to the city!! Thanks for sharing...

Courtney said...

Adorable. I think the white ones have it for me (although if I lived in a place where I needed to hail taxi's I would want both!)

benson said...

so cute--although it never gets that cold around here--unless of course I'm out at 3 AM (which hasn't happened for years!)on a wintry night.

J said...

I think you need a pair for Fragile :)

It's items like these that make me (almost) wish to live in cold weather. So cute!

CC said...

I work at a school and "need" the HI 5 pair. What a hoot!!!

Courtney, I just checked the KS website and I don't see them. Where might I find a pair???

Hugs!

Courtney said...

CC: They should be coming out this winter, so be sure to check the site or call the stores. In fact, a store may be able to tell you more info. Aren't they the best!

J: I do need a pair for the scoot! Maybe a pair and a new hat to add to the collection started last Christmas...hint hint ;)

Ashlee said...

oh, it would be fun to wave a taxi in san francisco with those mittens...too bad my devotion is pledged to the city bus.

I have been totally waiting for these to go live on the site. Last year I snagged the turquoise pom pom hat with the thinking bubble on the top and I love it. The quality of th knits is surprisingly great.

Love the Hi/5 ones! Since im in the suburbs I don't really need the Taxi ones. They are adorable. Good eye. Now are they going to cost me an arm and a leg?

I'm a big fan of the "let's not take ourselves too seriously" designs. These are great.

How fun!

Those are so fun and adorable. Sorta makes me wish I needed mittens, around here we don't, but I do miss dressing warm and bundling up with all the colorful scarves and hats. Getting that chill which really wakes up the senses. As long as I can escape it eventually, I like it. heh heh heh

Adorable - I've got to get the Hi 5's for my 1st grader

Courtney said...

UPDATE: The gloves will be available at Kate Spade shops this month for $95. All winter accessories have already begun shipping to their boutiques.

Can you tell me if the taxi mittens have the word on the palm? On the top? On just one mitten?

Courtney said...

Anon: I believe the writing is on both palms.
