Kate Spade Dead At 55

Spring colored handbags on display at the Kate Spade boutique within Macy’s in New York on Sunday

Kate Spade's husband emerged one day after the designer's suicide wearing what was described as a "bizarre" mouse mask, drawing some mystery but also shedding light on the divorce rumors that swirled after Kate Spade's death.

"She was actively seeking help and working closely with her doctors to treat her disease, one that takes far too many lives", he says. She "sounded happy" the night before she committed suicide.

Spade, born Katherine Noel Brosnahan, was best known for her namesake brand of high-end modern handbags that grew to incorporate other womenswear.

The fashion designer was tragically found dead by her housekeeper at her Park Avenue apartment on Tuesday at the age of 55.

The elder sister of fashion designer Kate Spade claims the 55-year-old became obsessed with coverage of Robin Williams's death following his suicide in 2014, according to reports.

Underwood told the audience that her husband took his own life and left a note. He said they were not legally separated and never discussed divorce.

"She was a great talent who had an immeasurable impact on American fashion and the way the world viewed American accessories", they said. "That I could help her fill in any blanks she might have". She loves spending her time outdoors as much as possible. "I was Kate Brosnahan, and I kept coming up with these names, and Andy kept saying 'Kate Spade" because we were 50-50 partners", she told NPR.

The firestorm of publicity prompted Andy Spade to issue a statement Wednesday to The New York Times to try to set the record straight.

"She was always giving and charitable". The husband-and-wife duo parted ways with their successful company in 2007, after selling to Liz Claiborne Inc.

Coach, now known as Tapestry, bought the Kate Spade brand past year for $2.4 billion, seeking to broaden its appeal. Spade also named a shoe for her daughter, the Beatrix. "My grandmother gave me my first Kate Spade bag when I was in college", Chelsea Clinton wrote on Twitter. Over a decade ago, she sold the business and later launched a luxury line Frances Valentine. She does not elaborate or share any more detail than to say 'Thank God, I'm cancer free. "Then I remember thinking, you know, 'No, I'm not on your mailing list, but I think I helped create it'".
