There’s a lot to love about Kate Spade: everything from her staple handbags to her many fun and feminine accessories.The fashion company’s blog, “Behind the Curtain,” allows readers to take a peek at the many inspirations behind their unique yet iconic designs. It features pictorial collages of their products, celebrities with their products, inspiration boards, and lifestyle advice.
While perusing the site, you can find everything from a helpful tutorial for wearing a silk scarf to menu suggestions for a bridal shower. Recent posts take readers behind the scenes into the Signature Spade collection and on set at the Holiday 2011 Collection shoot.
The blog successfully captures the designer’s aesthetic. Like the products themselves, the layout and font choices are clean and chic with an upscale and feminine edge. It’s not hard to spend hours on the blog soaking in style advice and reading the editors’ “Things We Love” book.
While the blog is mostly one big advertisement for the company’s products, it’s a fabulous way to bring a little luxury into your life without spending a penny. “Behind the Curtain” is definitely a “need to read”.
