Stylist and creative consultant Kate Foley with the Kate Foley x Time's Arrow Ishi Wristlet from the new collection.
There’s always that one girl that everyone wants to be. Right now, that girl is stylist and creative consultant Kate Foley. Her recent collaboration with handbag designer Time’s Arrow is bringing vibrant color to an already gorgeous collection, and we just had to know more.
SHOPBOP: Congratulations on the collaboration with Time’s Arrow! How did the partnership come about?
KATE FOLEY: I met Christine Park when I came to view the first Time’s Arrow collection. Upon seeing the bags, I instantly felt a rush of excitement and totally fell in love! After seeing collection after collection of crazily expensive bags, it was such a relief to see a brand making beautiful, high-quality bags at a great price point.

SB: How did you inject your signature style into the Time’s Arrow look?
KF: I love color and always find myself drawn to accessories in bright, rich shades, which I pair with gold, whether that’s jewelry that I wear or the hardware on a bag or shoe. I also have a love for crazy, wacky prints, so I think the bags are 100% my signature style.
SB: What was the best part of this partnership?
KF: Working with the Time’s Arrow team. They're all wonderful, and it was great to bounce ideas back and forth and come up with such a great collection that we're all excited about!
SB: What was the most challenging?
KF: The most challenging part was editing down the colorways and styles so the collection didn't end up being huge!

SB: If you had to pick, which bag are you the most excited about?
KF: It's so hard to say! One moment one bag is a favorite, and the next moment it's a different one. I love how the Ishi wristlets came out. The blue on blue is beautiful, but I also love the Carmine/Capri colorway, which comes in the Helene and the Affine. I don't think I could choose just one!
