That Kate Spade pop-up shop at 175 Orchard Street we told you about is actually one of four planned for downtown. But there’s a high-tech twist. The shopping experience will be a combination between online e-tailing and standard brick-and-mortar.

Racked learns that each Kate Spade Saturday location – positioned in nightlife-saturated neighborhoods – will offer computerized window shopping with the help of eBay. Real shopping, though. 24/7. Customers can browse and purchase goods, and expect arrival within one hour of checkout. There are thirty total items in the collection, with new product arriving each Saturday. Hence the name.

Yesterday evening, workers were busy outfitting the window displays with accessories, pasting brain-teaser exterior, and ensuring the computer equipment worked properly. How long before this thing is totaled by drunken revelers?

Anyway, All Kate Spade Saturday outposts will be open for one month beginning June 8.

The touch screen storefronts are located at:

154 Spring Street
7 West 18th Street
30 Gansevoort Street
