The best way to summarize Kate Spade is 'playful sophistication'. Oozing ladylike loveliness and bold, kitsch color ways, Kate Spade New York has fast become famous for its exuberant approach to fashion. Founded by Kate Brosnahan Spade, a former accessories editor, in 1993, Kate Spade New York was initially the talented stylista's mission to design the perfect handbag. Launching with just six shapes, Kate fuses sleek construction with eye-catching palettes in an entirely innovative way, which won the hearts of those in the fashion know almost immediately. Today, Kate Spade has expanded in to clothing, shoes, accessories, jewelry and other lifestyle items. This collection of women's Kate Spade beachwear is cute, flamboyant and chic all at the same time.
