Featured brand: Kate Spade
Inspired by a chic and timeless style, the kate spade new york collection evokes the 60’s, and the influence is clear both in terms of design and colour.
Ophthalmic sun lenses offer many of the refined and distinctive details of the bags and accessories of this brand, with daring but at the same time sophisticated collections, with a range of pretty shapes, easy to wear and with typical womanly colours.
It all started back in 1993, when Kate Brosnahan Spade, a former accessories editor at Mademoiselle, set out to design the perfect handbag. Debuting with just six silhouettes, she combined sleek, utilitarian shapes and colorful palettes in an entirely new way, and so Kate Spade New York was born.
Women and fashion editors fell for the fresh, modern sensibility, and our first shop in New York city swiftly opened in 1996. as the company grew, our graphic approach and trademark wit created a visual shorthand for a brand recognizable the world over.
In 2007, spade turned the reins to design powerhouse Kate Spade & company (formerly known as liz claiborne, inc.). shortly after, Deborah Lloyd took the helm as president and chief creative officer with an aim to broaden the line while honoring our rich history. Along with CEO Craig Leavitt, she quickly launched clothing and jewelry collections, quickly followed by the introduction of bedding, legwear and fragrance.
Today Kate Spade has grown into a global lifestyle brand, and aim to inspire colorful living through our handbags and clothing to jewelry, shoes, stationery, eyewear, baby, fragrance, tabletop, bedding and gifts.
All the while, they've never lost sight of who they are: a spirited approach, commitment to curiosity and passion for sharing a colorful world still shapes all that is Kate Spade New York.
