As American brands turn away from kitschy accessories and clothes, it’s getting harder to get items that will have you stand out.
By Yvette E
Since the demise of Betsey Johnson as a brand and the purchase of Kate Spade, mid tier Kitsch is on the decline.
Yes, you can still find a cheap kitsch purse at Forever 21 or Rainbow but if you want quality, the next tier is in the thousands.
It’s not even the death of American Kitsch that’s the main problem. Other brands have trouble staying in the US market.
Nicopanda had stores like Macy’s, Urban outfitters and Opening Ceremony knocking on their door in 2015 but now doesn’t even have an online store.
Desigual closed 2 stores in NY and changed direction of the brand for US market.
So where do you go for a breakout accessory?
We compiled a list of possible of mid-priced Kitsch brands below:
Aldo is doing a great job on mid-priced bags, picking up where Charming Charlie left off.
Alternative sites that contain alot of brands are your best bet. Asos carrys a great selection of mid priced brands that cab be kitschy and othef non-normcore styles.
Steve Madden and Sophie Webster both get our vote here but Steve is more accessible in the States.
Do you know any Kitschy brand under the radar or if you design kitsch let us know and comment below.
Happy Friyay and a 3 Day Weekend!!💋
