The world mourned when it lost one of its brightest stars last June, the talented Kate Valentine Spade, founder of the Kate Spade New York brand, launched 25 years ago. Now, aside from her beautiful daughter, her legacy lives on with her brand, which recently debuted its first Spring ’19 runway show at the New York Public Library during New York Fashion Week under the helm of Creative Director Nicola Glass.

Paying tribute to the late icon, the show honoured the creative soul and the joy she brought into the world with a card on each seat that said, “She left a little sparkle everywhere she went,” along with a trail of glitter that sparkled the runway path that models walked on.

As for the collection, Nicola took a more sophisticated and refined approach while still maintaining the brand’s heritage and whimsical personality. “Overall, the collection is more modern and less retro; there is a sense of polished ease. Details are very important to me. Our new products are intended to be experienced up close; not everything is visible at first glance,” she says. Think feminine and flirty silhouettes with a nod to the ‘70s and ‘40s, lush fabrics and unique details to be discovered up close.
