Bolly Bleh!

Kate Spade introduced two new bags under the collection 'Bollywood'...and, (no prize for guessing) I absolutely don't care for it all!

It supposedly draws on the "industry's dazzling palettes and unabashed glitz with a touch of camp" but I fail to see any of the delectable kitsch that defines Bollywood!!

The bags come in soft patent calfskin, and in cheery neon colors that would've been perfect for spring but even that does nothing for me!

I seriously fail to see 'Bollywood' and they say whats in a name!

Doesn't look Bollywood from any angle! I don't understand how they identified Bollywood in it, it's not even lack of knowledge, it's just common sense.
The only way they could have come up with is, maybe they watched some 90s Bollywood song where the actors were singing in the rain wearing plastic raincoats?! Still doesn't make sense.

That's the weirdest interpretation of "Bollywood" I've ever seen! Wow.

Ummm.. Has the designer even WATCHED a bollywood movie? Or been to bollywood??
Shouldn't the collection by kitsch-ier, grand-er (not that this is collection is grand), rich-er than just neon-spring-y??

Just goes to show, how India and Indian is big all over the world, and they think by naming a mediocre bag "Bollywood", the new IT crowd of India will go hollering for it. Dream on sis, you gotta a LOOOOONG way to go

Im surprised because Kate Spade is usually well researched and in context.
