Founded: 1993
Interim CEO: Victor Luis



In 1993, a revolution in accessories began with the design of a utilitarian nylon handbag—one that was an elegant, classic, unpretentious complement to every outfit. Simple silhouettes with clever details and crisp palettes soon established a visual shorthand for the kate spade new york brand that, today, is recognizable the world over.


Creative Direction

As the creative force behind the brand, Deborah Lloyd shapes the design of numerous product categories and, early on, rolled out a robust ad campaign strategy that has become a model for innovative marketing.
