Kate Spade creates short stories

Kate Spade's novel idea

Modern, classic and contemporary are few of the ways we describe Kate Spade. We love her handbags, and we love her style. And now there's even more of Kate Spade to love.

Kate Spade-curated short stories

Kate Spade's novel idea

In addition to her classic handbag styles, Kate Spade now brings us a short story collaboration with The Strand bookstore.

For her collection of curated short stories, Kate Spade found seven female writers to write a short story, each incorporating the phrase, "She is quick and curious and playful and strong."

Color us curious, indeed! The collection -- decorative and artfully designed -- is available now for $35. Want to know more? Read more about the authors and excerpts from each story.

Meet the authors!
