As many of you probably know, having read some of my posts (or just looking at my pieces), I am a huge fan of Kate Spade. She was definitely one of my favorite accessories designers and I was truly heartbroken today to hear of her unfortunate death. Aside from Alexander McQueen (another one of my favorites whom we also lost to suicide), no other designer was so able to uniquely incorporate the most random, everyday items into their pieces as brilliantly as she did. I remember the first day I wore my Kate Spade Chinese food takeout box bag from her Fall 2014 collection (pictured below). To this day, I have never felt more stylish and comfortable in a new purchase. Every time I wear it (yes I still do!) I get compliments on how beautiful and unique it is. I'm sure that would've made her happy, after all, that is what designers strive for.
Below are some of my favorite pieces from Kate Spade. She was truly an inspiration to me and to my little brand. She will be missed.
Keep Shining, Love, wherever you are now. We hope you're at peace.
