Founded in 1993 when Kate Brosnahan Spade, a former accessories editor set out to find the perfect handbag, Kate Spade combines sleek, utilitarian shapes with bold colour palettes for a fresh, modern sensibility.
The brand’s first store in New York City opened in 1996, and as the company grew so did its graphic approach and trademark wit that’s now synonymous with the namesake label. In 2007 Spade turned the reins to design house Kate Spade & Company (formerly known as Liz Claiborne, inc.). Deborah Lloyd was assigned as president and chief creative officer, broadening the line to include jewellery, bedding, legwear and fragrances.
As the label grows into a global lifestyle brand, Kate Spade’s exuberant approach to the everyday is evident in each and every design, from jewellery to shoes, stationary to fragrances, bedding to gifts. Kate Spade’s spirited approach, commitment to curiosity and passion for sharing the brand’s colourful world is what led the brand to become what it is today.
