The picture won't show? I'm assuming it's the black and white floral one from the KS website (that one is on sale as well)...
Sorry I should have clicked the link myself see if it worked. It was the blue floral one.
I passed and got a different style or bad from the surprise sale. [emoji4]

I hope this is not something all of you knew. I just saw a news piece that Coach is preparing to buy Kate Spade. I also did not know that Kate Spade used to be Liz Claiborne.. I am new to theTPF.

Yes I heard the news. Kate Spade the founder/designer is no longer with Kate Spade New York. She has her own new line now called Frances Valentine. I won't be buying anymore new design Kate Spades as those will not be her design. I'm checking out the new line she has and so far nothing I have to have. They look nice. I haven't seen a new thread created for her new line here on TPF yet. Does any one own any FV bags? Any opinions or reviews?

From what I understand Kate Spade (now Kate Valentine) hasn't been with the brand in a long time, like nearly a decade. I fell in love with the brand in the last six years so I can't say I have any loyalty to her specifically. Ive had some disappointment in the last year which has tempered my excitement about the brand but I still am very much a fan of the current Kate Spade brand.

A decade? In that case my new bag most likely isn't her design. Lol! Though I don't always buy bags based on the designer. I have no name faux leather bag from Zara, just because it's a great Cobalt blue Convertible clutch cross body. Recently all I have been buying are vintage Coach bags. The glove tanned leather on those bags are so lovely!

Oh speaking of not buying anymore new Kate Spade bag.. I actually did almost buy again! I saw the new multi color bag and almost bought it during the 25% off sale. But it was too small and wouldn't fit my phone so I was so disappointed! I really wish it was just an inch wider and taller! [emoji24]

I have a couple Frances Valentine bags and have to say I am in love. The old Kate is back. The customer service is amazing. You can call or chat with a real person who knows a lot about the collection. The New Medium June is my favorite but my Finn colorblock is a close second.
