Dear Kicks customers, My heart breaks today for Kate’s family. I felt I needed to share how important and influential she was in my career as a fashion person.
When I opened Calla in 1993 and was such a novice I went on my first buying trip to NY. At that time I heard about a new handbag designer who was showing her bags at the plaza. It was a young Kate Spade who said “Do you want to see my 6 bags I’ve designed?" and I loved them. She said "Lee, do you think your customers will give up their structured bags for these?" I said “Oh yes!", and placed my order. I still have that black travel bag and my last trip I took it with me.
What an icon!
Some of you know she started a new line last year called Frances Valentine. Kicks had them this spring and they were on order for fall. I saw her once some years back at O’Hara airport and she said she was so grateful that long ago time that I was the first independent to buy her bags. She will be so missed.
Come by and share your stories of your first bag.
