The company now designs and markets chic apparel and footwear, colourful accessories, timeless home décor, and whimsical stationery. Its new location at the Rideau Centre is only the eighth to open in Canada. Why not bring a little Kate Spade into your life? Pictured: the All-Occasions Card Set, $30.
