Yesterday, weekend style took a big hit. According to the Wall Street Journal, kate spade new york is shuttering brick-and-mortar stores for its spin-off labels Kate Spade Saturday and Jack Spade. But not all is lost. The more affordable, classic-with-a-quirky-twist brands will stay under the Kate Spade & Company umbrella, though they’ll only be sold online. Did you just sigh in relief? Yeah, us too.
The brand wants to focus its energy on “a new business model. . . to leverage the distribution network of its retail partners and expand its e-commerce platform.” Personally, I’m curious to see what exactly Kate Spade & Co. has up its sleeve.
