What Makes The Kate Spade Handbags So Special?
The designer is indeed no more, but her designs remain and will continue to be loved worldwide. The former senior fashion editor at the Mademoiselle Magazine and the founder of one of the most dynamic and luxurious designer houses in NYC, Kate Spade took the industry by storm in the early 90s, with her eye-catchy whimsical designs that form a staple for fashionistas even to this day.
Although her tragic end has made her designs immortal, that’s not the only reason for her handbags being so special. Let’s shed some light on the rest.
Impeccable designs and unmatched usability
With the brand motto of ‘Live colorfully’, Kate Spade’s handbags exude a vibrant essence along with the superior quality that was achieved by employing industry-standard materials. For example, the first-ever handbag, “Sam”, made by the brand, flaunted a nylon exterior and was inherently waterproof, which served the purpose of being a tote bag quite well.
“Sam” also had more space than the tote bags of those days and was perfect for both students and professionals alike. First created in solids, “Sam” went through several improvisations later to include attractive and eye-catching designs and patterns in the form of floral prints and stripes. Fast forward to 2020, and the cute little elephant handbag made from exquisite Italian leather, which accommodates even an iPhone XS Max, is one of the must-have accessories to appease the fashionista in you.
The fun part
Kate Spade was highly popular because of her ability to come up with quirky, fun designs that captured the hearts of many. Be it her ‘Samira’ clutch that came in the shape of a vintage radio, or the purses in the shapes of black cats, taxicabs, peacock feathers, and so on, people love them like anything. Not only do these bags help the owners stand apart but also are great conversation starters, especially when you are meeting someone for the first time.
Talking about word-of-mouth promotion? Well, Kate Spade’s cute little designs boast of it in full swing.
The durability of the products
Is there any point buying a designer purse that costs a fortune and doesn’t last even for a year? Well, no! Whether you’re looking for totes or clutches, Kate Spade’s collection is of the durable ones. They are well-equipped to accommodate larger, heavier items without wear and tears for so long that it makes you wonder if it’s a handbag or a genie.
Using crosshatched leather, which is mainly derived from cowhide and also referred to as Italian smooth leather, nylon, and canvas, Kate Spade’s collection shouts strength and durability in every inch of the products. With a special wax finish that the cowhide leather is subjected to, the bags are scratch-resistant and easiest to maintain.
No breaking banks
You don’t have to burn a hole in your pocket to get a Kate Spade handbag. Although her collections are included in the “luxury designers” club, they are way affordable than most designer handbags that you get in the market. If you can’t get a Birkin, you need not feel disappointed anymore, as Kate Spade has your back and how!
Wrapping it up
Kate Spade also rose to fame because of her contribution to women’s empowerment. She dedicated her collections to the low-income NYC women, who couldn’t afford designer accessories before.
