who we are

since our launch in 1993 with six
essential handbags, we’ve always stood
for optimistic femininity.
today we’re a
global life and style house filled with
handbags, of course. also clothes,
jewelry, home décor, tech accessories
and so many other things that you use
every day.

we value thoughtful details.
we think a layer of polished ease looks
(and feels) so chic.
and to us, modern,
sophisticated colors make a personal
style statement all their own.

it’s these founding principles that
define our unique style. we like that our
style is synonymous with joy.

our story began when...

kate brosnahan spade, an accessories editor
at mademoiselle, was frustrated
she couldn't find the
utilitarian handbag she'd been
for years and set out to design the
one out of her apartment.

she made samples out of construction
paper. she
combined sleek shapes
and colorful palettes in an
entirely new
way and debuted six versions of a
called sam. women and fashion
editors loved the
designs. they sparked
a revolution in accessories.
our spade

we thoughtfully integrate our
signature mark into all of our designs
for a delightful surprise.
(sometimes it's obvious, and sometimes
you have to look closely.)
