Inspiration: Kate Spade

I love Kate Spade. Whimsical, colorful, and just plain fun, her fashions fit the easy going fun loving woman who doesn't mind adding a little zing to her professional wardrobe (even the models' poses are fun). In a sea of black, brown, and gray, a bright colored cardigan with a soft, tweed skirt stands out with flair and infuses a welcomed change of season. Out with the cold, in with the cool, smooth, and mellow hues of spring!

Kate, whose maiden name was Brosnahan, launched her eclectic line Kate Spade New York with husband, Andy Spade, in 1993. The accessories market has never been the same. With graphic elements and memorable logos, Spade's accessories line, which includes everything from shoes and handbags, to stationary, portfolios, and eyeglasses, incorporates the functional as well as the fashionable.

Kate Spade is now owned by Liz Clairborne, Inc. with Deborah Lloyd of Banana Republic and Burberry as creative director and co-president. No doubt that the line will continue to broaden its horizons while sustaining the vision of this unique and world renowned brand.

Below are some of my favorite pieces that inspire the creativity in me. Feast your eyes and enjoy!
