Actor David Spade has spoken out about the death of his sister-in-law and top fashion designer Kate Spade, saying on social media that he "still can't believe it".

Julia Curry, a spokeswoman for the company, said that "Kate will be dearly missed" and "our thoughts are with Andy and the entire Spade family at this time".

Spade's was a lifestyle brand before everything was a lifestyle brand, and unlike the seltzer companies and razor subscription services that claim the title for themselves today, hers spoke to how customers wanted to live while meeting them where they were - there was patterned china (for entertaining, maybe, but more likely Chinese takeout), striped bedding that made you question the existence of plain white sheets, and cheeky notecards that have withstood the test of the email era. "It's an adornment, not an obsession". Opening her first store in NY in 1993, her designs were an instant hit for women of all ages.

The couple have a 13-year-old daughter name Frances Beatrix Spade. Tapestry, Inc. bought Kate Spade in July 2017 for $2.4 billion.

Wilson, of InStyle, recalled often finding her in her store, helping shoppers.

'My heart and prayers go out to Kate Spade and her family.

"I like things to endure because thats the way I shop", Ms. Spade told the Toronto Star.

Mallis, the former CFDA director, noted that the stunning news of Spade's death came just the morning after virtually the entire NY fashion industry had gathered at the Brooklyn Museum for the glitzy annual CFDA awards.

One of the downsides to her design and manufacturing success was that Kate Spade products, particularly the handbags, were of such a clean and simple design that they became the targets of counterfeiters.
