My love of Kate and Andy Spade runs deep (clearly). While I always loved — and still love — kate spade pieces (see exhibits A, B and C), what really always made me gaga was their branding. And I don’t mean logos, I mean their marketing and ad campaigns.
Remember this kate spade ad campaign in Bisbee, Arizona?
I still think of it often and it definitely inspires my work.
Plus, I have this thing for couples who work together. 😉
So when I got word a few months back that Kate and Andy were launching a new venture, I was over the moon. Meet Frances Valentine, their new collection of shoes, handbags and accessories. It has Kate and Andy written all over it.
I was instantly charmed by these shoes (that geodesic dome heel!).
But again, it’s their branding and this desert photoshoot in Joshua Tree that makes me want to BE the Frances Valentine girl.
Now at $500 for a pair of shoes, it’s not something one can scoop up without some forethought, but I’d been pining for these for months, so when I saw them go on sale for 40% off over the weekend, you better believe I scooped up this pair, plus this darling bag, which is also on major sale.
I know, but when it comes to Kate and Andy, I can’t help myself.
Shop my faves below (many up to 40% off):
p.s. I deeply and importantly regret not also scooping up the yellow pair before they sold out, so if anyone happens to have a pair in a 7.5 or 8, let a girl know. 😉
