It started with an idea and a small handful of passionate believers. We’ve grown a bit since our early days, but our playful dream-big, anything-is-possible mentality has stayed the same. Today, Kate Spade & Company designs and markets accessories and apparel principally under two global, multichannel lifestyle brands: kate spade new york and Jack Spade.
We also operate the Adelington Design Group, a private brand jewelry design and development division.
Our collections span demographics, genders and geographies but our core is consistent and pure. We design to accent our customer’s interesting life and aim to inspire adventure at each new turn.
