Fashion designer Kate Spade opened her first store in 1996, eventually going on to become an iconic label known for its sleek and colorful handbags.
Kate Spade was found dead of an apparent suicide in her Manhattan apartment on June 5, and many are mourning the loss of a fashion icon who brought a pop of colour to their lives.
While the designer was famous for her classic yet colourful bags, it was the quirkier pieces that stood out best. Here’s a look at some of our personal favourites.
