About a dozen years ago, when I was just starting out, the fashion item I craved most was a Kate Spade bag. In fact, I think I still have the black Kate with red gingham lining that I bought when I got a big promotion. It's packed away somewhere with my prom dresses.
When I look at photos of Deborah Lloyd's home and closet, I can see how much her point of view has contributed to where Kate Spade is today. The color. The whimsy. The wit.
Pretty meets smart. Girl next door meets glamor. Hot dogs meet foie gras.

I'm on the lookout for what the next 10 years has in store for Kate. And for Deborah.
