I remember when Kate Spade came out. She was unique, and she ‘got’ me. Kate Spade made me feel pretty. Not “Chanel pretty,” which always made me feel like part of a club I didn’t want to belong to. Not pretty like Saint Laurent, who always made me feel that I better make my body deserve to wear him. Not pretty like Valentino, who made me feel masculine in a feminine way. Powerful. (I liked that, but I never felt pretty in Valentino.)
Love this! You helped me understand why my daughter - and thousands more - always loved everything Kate Spade! Simple, clean, feel-good, functional AND pretty! Though the brand continues to exist, its founder will be missed! And that's another conversation.
