Saturday's all right for shopping, and is fittingly opening day for Kate Spade Saturday at Ala Moana Center with refreshments from 1 to 4 p.m. April 19 to mark the occasion.
Where Kate Spade is pretty and proper, this sister brand is geared toward KS's younger, tomboy sibling, with dresses, separates and accessories geared toward bringing a carefree weekend vibe to every day of the week, with bright colors, graphic silhouettes and bold prints.
Prices are less that of the original brand, with shorts running about $80, simple tops starting at $85, and dresses are about $140.
The brand launched in Japan in spring 2013, and after it won U.S. fans online at Saturday.com, brick-and-mortar stores popped up in New York City, Los Angeles, Houston, and now, arguably the nation's fourth most important fashion city, Honolulu.
The 1,041-square-foot store features apparel, handbags, shoes, tech accessories, fashion accessories, home goods and lifestyle items, with new products to be delivered weekly.
A special feature is a charging station where customers can charge their phones while they shop.
Here's a peek from a press preview earlier today.
