As a lifelong fashionista and seasoned Zappos buyer for women’s clothing and accessories, my friends and family often ask for guided style advice. Questions concerning the season’s hottest trends, colors and patterns, to name just a few, drive many of our girl talk conversations. Because the world of fashion is ever evolving and changes so quickly, I often point them in the direction of my favorite lifestyle brand for insight and inspiration: Kate Spade New York.
Kate Spade continues to be one of the fashion industry’s leading luxury brands, and its clean, modern aesthetic is truly legendary. In fact, its minimalist approach began back in 1993 when Kate Brosnahan Spade, a former accessories editor, 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. Needless to say, women and fashion editors everywhere fell hard for the fresh, modern sensibility.
Throughout the ‘90s and early ‘00s, Kate Spade’s offerings began to rapidly grow as they launched an amazing line of clothing, footwear and jewelry. Thanks to the brand’s ever-evolving collections and spirited approach to style, today Kate Spade has become an industry staple.
From my perspective as a buyer, I fall in love over and over again with the simplistic approach and timeless beauty of Kate Spade products. Whether it’s an antiquing kind of day or you’re dressing up and accessorizing for a gala, the brand's exuberant approach to the everyday encourages personal style with a dash of incandescent charm.
Regardless if it’s autumn, winter, spring or summer, my fashion advice to you is this: always embrace the crisp, clean and colorful world of Kate Spade New York.
