First there were handbags. Different, adorable, charming and whimsical. Then came shoes and sunglasses. Followed by stationery and tableware. Not long after came products for the home like photo frames, glassware, and more. Baby products were a natural addition and as if that weren't enough, she began designing jewelry and released a fragrance as well as candles. And I'm not even including Jack Spade, the line and store, for men.
The Kate Spade Empire:
Now, Kate Spade launches a clothing collection. The line is what you'd except if you're familiar with the designer. Sweet but sexy and slightly retro, cute but couture, precious and pricey. The pieces look like items Kate herself might wear. The model even has a look that resembles both Kate and her talented Creative Director and co-president of Kate Spade New York, Deborah Lloyd.
