Never having heard of Kate Spade, while researching Kate Spade Sunglasses, I looked her up on the internet. It seems she was born Katherine Noel Brosnahan in Kansas City, Missouri; and when she became a young woman, married Andy Spade, thus becoming Kate Spade. According to reports, Kate was always charming yet original and typical all-American gal. She has a keen sense of humor and yet a no-nonsense approach to her life.
After leaving Mademoiselle Magazine in 1991, Kate started designing her own handbags. She felt those available on the market lacked style and practicality. She then investigated the cost of producing them and created a line of her own. The were classically shaped and came in many interesting colors and fabrics. Thus in 1993, the Kate Spade handbags were launched. She was awarded America’s new fashion talent in accessories by the Council of Fashion Designers of America in 1996 and 1998.

From there, she expanded into collections of shoes, accessories, apparel, baby items, paper and glasses. By 2006, Kate Spade had shops in New York City, Boston, Chicago, San Francisco, Greenwich, Manhasset, Washington D.C., Los Vegas and Boca Raton.
Kate Spade glasses were introduced in the spring of 2001. “The “glasses” collection consists of clean shapes, classic proportions and, naturally, an element of surprise. The surprise was that the Kate Spade sunglasses and ophthalmic frames were introduced.
When I checked out her current website, I found sixteen styles of sunglasses available. The one called, Dee, caught my immediate attention. It is made in Italy and comes in black/grey and horn/green. As with all Kate Spade sunglasses it has a ‘modern twist’ with chunkier arms. This particular style has tortoise shell frames. They are lightweight and have scratch resistant plastic lens which provides 100$ UV protection. You also get a Kate Spade sunglasses case and cleaning cloth.
My second favorite Kate Spade Sunglasses are the Jacqueline model. My guess is they were thus named after Jackie Kennedy Onasis. They are over-sized and have a plastic round frame. This style of frame is recommended for square or oval faces, which I have. Again, they have lightweight, scratch-resistant plastic lenses which provide 100% UV protection. These Kate Spade sunglasses also come in tortoise frames with the Kate Spade Logo. You also get a Kate Spade carrying case and a cleaning cloth. These sunglasses are also made in Italy. They are style #HS22583Z.
These are just the two favorites for me. Kate Spade sunglasses come in many styles and colors, from the thicker plastic frames to even the wire framed aviators ray ban eyeglasses. You should check them out.
