Just down the hall and around the corner from Curly Girl on the eighth floor of Americasmart‘s building two is Lifeguard Press. One of their licenses is kate spade new york — and I predict their new party collection will set the stage at many a fabulous spring and summer shindig.

Most pieces are melamine or acrylic, but all are dishwasher safe — and exude the upscale, freewheeling, colorful kate spade vibe.

lifeguard_2I love that gold polka-dotted ice bucket and ‘Break the Ice’ cooler. There’s no chicer way to say the cocktails have arrived!

lifetguard_1The office accessories were irresistible as well — dynamic and smartly packaged, and that adorable office in a box will definitely make working fun!

Bags, wallets and keychains are definitely nothing new at market, but ban.do, also in the Lifeguard showroom, puts a fresh, vibrant spin on the category, infusing it with the brand’s signature qualities of fun, lightheartedness and laughter. That watermelon bag is also a cooler!

Special thanks to the brilliant Natalie Chang for playing hostess during my visit — always lovely to catch up!lifeguard_5
