Kate Spade & Company debuted on February 26, 2014, but the initial sparks formed far earlier in the minds of two imaginative and driven women.  Liz Claiborne (in 1976) and Kate Spade (in 1993), each frustrated they couldn't find what they believed women were looking for in the marketplace, took matters into their hands and founded their own successful companies.  And so the spirit of our company was born.

Today, Kate Spade & Company designs and markets accessories and apparel principally under two global, multichannel lifestyle brands: kate spade new york and Jack Spade New York.

In every time zone and on every continent, kate spade new york is a global lifestyle brand offering aspirational luxury with a clever wit and playful charm that is distinctly our own.

Jack Spade New York

Jack Spade New York grew out of the simple idea that useful products could also be stylish. With the belief that good design solves a problem with straightforward solutions, the brand uses timeless and durable materials, delivering unexpected happiness to its customers. Jack Spade understands that taste and style say more about someone than fashion or trends. As a brand it stands for smart designs and ideas to help men live a layered life. Jack Spade offers apparel, accessories, bags and curiosities that project the brand's sensibilities.

In addition to its core brands, Kate Spade & Company also operates the Adelington Design Group, a private brand jewelry design and development division.

With decades of heritage and expansion, Kate Spade & Company has enormous momentum and is poised for future growth.
