REMEMBERING KATE SPADE

I remember my first trip to New York. I was living in London at the time, it was my birthday, and the first thing I wanted to do as soon as we landed at JFK Airport was to visit the Kate Spade store and treat myself to one of her bags. This was pre-2006 before Kate Spade sold the company and it turned into the multi-million dollar business that it is today. I remember walking into the store in Soho, and seeing it for the first time: a black fabric tote with the most exquisite embroidery on the front (not frou-frou at all, more vintage boho-chic), sassy pink lining on the inside and glossy cane handles that reminded me of an antique umbrella. I fell in love with that bag there and then.

I’ve seen many similar stories shared on social media today following Kate Spade’s sad passing, I really hope she knew how much joy she gave to so many women.
