Fifteen years and a handbag revolution later, wit and playful sophistication are hallmarks of everything "Kate Spade," a world that now includes bags for day and night, totes and luggage, shoes, stationery, eyewear, and a home collection made up of chic pieces for the table and unique gifts. A strong sense of personal style and a passion for color set the tone for each Kate Spade collection. Kate Spade continues to find inspiration in the everyday and the unpredictably elegant, bringing a graceful, exuberant approach to style and living.
Kate Spade celebrated the spirit of Hope Shining with an exclusive shopping event for customers throughout the country. At Cupcakes, Champagne and Shopping on February 28th, 2008, customers were invited to purchase Kate Spade handbags and accessories, with 20 percent of the proceeds from that evening donated to support the work of Hope Shining.
