Kate Spade Dead At 55

Kate Spade Dead At 55

The 55-year-old's body was found around 10 a.m.at her Park Avenue apartment on the Upper East Side of Manhattan by a housekeeper, the sources said.

In a statement shared on Wednesday with the New York Times, Spade's business partner and husband Andy Spade confirmed his wife's long battle with depression and anxiety, but characterized the suicide as a surprise.

Andy Spade said that he and his daughter Bea were "devastated by her loss, and can't even begin to fathom life without her".

Andy explained how the esteemed accessory designer had been "actively seeking" help for her mental health issues in the past five years and had been taking medication for both depression and anxiety.

"There was no substance or alcohol abuse", he wrote. Others cited unnamed fashion industry insiders who claimed Spade had been "drinking a lot" and was dealing with business problems. "We should all remember the beauty and joy that Kate brought to this world".

She met her frequent collaborator and future husband Andy Spade in the mid-1980s, when both were students at Arizona State University working in the same clothing store, they told The Impression, a fashion publication. But they were committed to co-parenting their daughter, so they often ate meals together and vacationed as a family, he said. Spade and her husband, the brother of actor and comedian David Spade, have a 13-year-old daughter. "We loved each other very much and simply needed a break". "If that helped anybody avoid anything - fine, she'd be delighted".

Together, the couple created a multi-million dollar empire with their handbag company, Kate Spade.

Saffo said her sister was at a hotel in Santa Fe when she saw the television news report of Robin Williams' death. And the fashion house she launched in 2016 is also named for her daughter.

Spade described his wife as kind and his best friend for 35 years.

Police have not publicly released any information, but sources told the AP and other news outlets that she had been found hanged.

"There was a moment when you couldn't walk a block in NY without seeing one of her bags, which were just like her; colorful and unpretentious", Wintour said in a statement.

She continued by email: "I will say this was not unexpected by me". A decade later, they started a new company, Frances Valentine, which focused on shoes and handbags. She loves spending her time outdoors as much as possible. "This thing better work", she said in the interview.
