For Summer 2017, model and architecture aficionado Fernanda Ly returns as the Kate Spade New York girl in a real-life scenario, when a seemingly every day morning commute becomes extraordinary. As Fernanda stands in a crowded New York City subway car on a hot summer day, a trumpet and guitar begin to play, and she finds herself completely surrounded by Flor de Toloache, an all-female Mariachi band, creating a moment unique to New York City and bringing a rush of joy to all in the car.
