The Spade name is synonymous with chic. There's Spade Green, Spade Stripes, and the Spade Shape (that boxy bag). But forget the fabulous arm candy and follow the yellow floral fabric to its source:  Kate Spade herself. As any Vogue reader would know, Mrs. Spade favors bright colors, strong pattern, and a bit of shine. But I'd never seen a full retrospective on her look, so I decided to create one. Here it is:  Kate Spade Style. Morning, evening, and in-between, below are a few snaps of the icon of green.

Kate Spade is a living doll, & your post did her proud. Fabulous job!

FrenchBlue said...

I love these spade styles and colors! A bit Dorothy Draper~ Thanks for sharing!

Bromeliad said...

Wouldn't it be awesome to be Kate Spade? Then you could wear all the Kate Spade you ever wanted.

Sanity Fair said...

LOL. Yes Bromeliad - that would be completely awesome. And give "shopping your closet" a whole new edge!!

Adore Kate Spade, but not just her designs, but her marketing abilty is fabulous and that's what I truly admire. You know how they ask "Name 5 people who you would like to meet before you die?" For me, one of them would be Kate Spade.Just something about her whole vision I love (like everybodu). Great job on the new blog header, it's perfect! And even greater job on these boards, you must like her as much as I do.

I love Kate's style and individuality. Great post and photo collection! xx

The Zhush said...

That was awesome! Sanity Fair...(and I love that name) I am fast becoming a HUGE fan of yours!

Robin said...

I love the reversible yellow/black/white coat, but the outfit with the pink tights is doing her no favors. Kate! You have a waist! don't hide it in a mushroom. Otherwise, carry on.

La Dolfina said...

I'm with the Zhush and becoming a huge fan of yours!!
Don't you think Kate Spade looks like a brunette version of Tea Leoni?

sinnlighet said...

My compliments again, this post is just amazing and I just enjoy it!

Agneta, the swedish one ;)

Erica Bartle (nee Holburn) said...

I can't believe I didn't know about your blog. Feel like I've just watched Mary Poppins. Talk about a spoon full of sugar! Thank you for the dedicated Kate Spade post (j'adore) and for dropping by my blog.
Love your work,

What a great post on such an iconic lady of style...

Kate Spade is one of my design heros -- not only has she made carefully planned, successful business decisions, but she sticks to who she is and the root of her company. Did I mention I love her style?

Nicely done!

Courtney said...

what a darling post! I think Spade Green may be one of the best colors of all time!

Couture Carrie said...

Love her style!
That reversible coat is really fabulous!


MK said...

Oh my word, that green wrap is GORGEOUS. I love it! Love the way it's tied!

SogniSorrisi said...

What a fun post. Kate Spade has a great style that really seems to speak to her personality.

Christy said...

I never thought I was a big Kate Spade fan, but now I kind of want to dress EXACTLY like her. LOVE her style! Fab post!

Averill said...

I so want that reversible trench coat!!

High-Heeled Foot in the door said...

Amazing! You know my blood runs Kate Spade green so this was the post for me.

How amazing is that reversible coat plus being a Barbie doll. Ah no words!

maureen @ The Inglenook Decor said...

she's all classic & glam!

Elizabeth said...

I'm a huge fan of her designs and style. I love that she kept true to herself with a ladylike approach even when the trends were going in the other direction.

That being said - sometimes she just does not dress for her body. Those trapeze jackets in shiny materials? ouch.
