My very first designer wallet (a turquoise-colored bifold) was from Kate Spade. Like most ‘90s girls, I was obsessed, and still am, with the brand’s colorful and jazzy designs. And I was deeply saddened to hear about Kate Spade’s death on Tuesday. In the wake of the news, it’s no surprise to see how Spade’s artistic legacy impacted her fans, like myself, on such a personal, individual level.
It seemed like everyone had a story to tell or comment to make about the accessories designer. Celebrities such as Mindy Kaling and Chelsea Clinton reminisced about their Kate Spade style moments, while Lena Dunham expressed her sympathies and prayers to Spade’s family. Twitter was flooded with these heartfelt messages.
