Will Kate Spade ever run out of fodder for its novelty accessories? The brand that brought you a patent leather take-out box and a straw armadillo handbag turned to Alaska for inspiration for its 2016 holiday collection — the result of a trip taken by Chief Creative Officer Deborah Lloyd. It's all very reminiscent of the Coca-Cola Holiday ads, what with the fuzzy polar bear crossbody and lucite clutch shaped like an iceberg, topped with a bedazzled bear. 

For those who want a little more subtlety to their holiday-themed accessories, there are clutches shaped like wrapped gifts and suitcases adorned with ladylike bows. One standout piece was also the plainest — a new tote style with a scalloped upper edge.
