Kate Spade was never a fancy designer. She was not edgy or avant-garde. But for a particular group of women — her customers, who were legion — she offered precisely the kind of fashion they craved: feminine, pretty and logical.
"Kate Spade’s Aesthetic Was the Happy Answer to Fashion Snobbery" is from the June 05, 2018 Lifestyle section of The Washington Post. It was written by Robin Givhan and narrated by Sam Scholl.
