Kate Spade is known for her iconinc bag that was created back in the 90`s called the SAM BAG - a glossy black nylonon little boxy bag with the tag and the name “Kate Spade New York” in white lettering affixed at the front. The sophisticated yet affordable (US$150 and US$450)  aspirational, yet attainable bag made it  a huge success as it became a bag that every woman, even for teenage girls - being able to taste luxury. 

Kate Spade was also a brand that used the [NYLON] material to create a bag for the first time ever back in 2015 -marking Kate Spade as one of the pioneering designers who made the versatile fabrication chic and trendy - provoking other brands to start using the material. 

Models such as Karlie Kloss, Jordan Dunn and Alisan Henry Vann represented the brand - making it a truly female powered and fun bubbly brand.
