So many women own a bag, purse, or phone-case emblazoned with the name Kate Spade. And on Wednesday, this iconic designer was found dead in her home in New York, shocking everyone. So what are the conversations we should be having around her death?
Spade’s death came with outpourings of grief, musings of talent and saddened reflections on a great life lost.
Above all, the world took a breath and the world took note: Mental health doesn’t discriminate and its throes take no prisoners. The sentiment was loud, clear and – in the case of Kate Spade – too late. Check on your mates, hold your family tight, ask the people around you if they’re doing OK.
Kate Spade, in her many years in the public eye, has become the face of a world that haunts its own celebrities.
Plus, if you’re seeing Sex And The City everywhere in your feeds this week, it’s because it is officially 20 years old. So what do Carrie and her mates mean to young feminists?
