Kate Spade’s New Venture: Frances Valentine

frances valentine 6

And…she’s back!

As WWD put it, Kate and Andy Spade are aware of the power of a name. Their namesake brand, Kate Spade New York, was bought by the former Liz Claiborne Inc. for $125 million in 2006. One year later, they both walked away from company. Now, almost 10 years later, they are so committed to their new venture, Frances Valentine, that Kate has officially changed her name to Kate Valentine. For real.

Frances Valentine will be focused on shoes for spring 2016, with prices hovering around $400. In addition, the line will offer fun metallic leather handbags that will sell from $225 to $725. Nordstrom, Bloomingdale’s and Shopbop all plan to carry the accessories.
