Kate Spade New York dates back to 1993, the year when Mademoiselle’s former accessories editor Kate Brosnahan Spade set out to design the perfect handbag. Starting with just six silhouettes, she combined sleek shapes with colourful palettes in an entirely new way. Women and fashion editors all over the United States fell in love with the modern, fresh designs and in 1996 the first Kate Spade shop opened in New York City. As the company grew, it began to be recognised the world over.
Today, they are a global lifestyle brand, and aim to inspire colourful living through their photo frames, dinnerware ranges, vases, gifts and other homeware products. All the while, they have never lost sight of who they are; their spirited approach, commitment to curiosity and passion for sharing their colourful world still shape all that is Kate Spade New York.
