Kate and Andy Spade launched their brand in 1993. Ms.Spade worked as an editor for accessories at Mademoiselle magazine and was often disappointed with selection of handbags for fashion photo sessions. So the idea to create my own handbags came up. She debuted with only six handbags created in her New York apartment and sold just a few of them.
But the success was not long in coming and very soon her distinctive handbags became the sought-after accessory both for celebrities and for all other women who prefer to be original. Kate Spade handbags were appreciated for colorful and effusive designs and utilitarian shapes. They were modern, exclusive, often came in pops of color and were the joyful answer to fashion snobbery.
For a short time the company turned into a women 's lifestyle and fashion house which besides handbags offered ready-to-wear, jewelry, footwear, gifts, home décor, and more.
The flirty and feminine collection of the brand's eyeglasses showcases lively and playful colors from more traditional hues of tortoiseshell or black to two-tone coloring having on-trend finishes with charming spade icon on the temples which is a signature of the brand.
Kate Spade eyeglasses feature simple vintage silhouettes, eye-catching colors and patterns, glossy or matte finishes and exclusive decorative accents.
The brand offers an array of classic and contemporary models from square, round, oval or rectangle to Cat-eye and browline styles.
