Fashion designer Kate Spade has been found dead in her New York apartment.

知名时尚设计师凯特•斯佩德近日被发现在纽约的家中身亡。

Police are investigating her death as an apparent suicide.

警方调查称凯特•斯佩德明显是自杀身亡。

Spade - who once edited fashion magazine Mademoiselle - was well known as a designer of clothes, shoes, and jewellery, but was best known for her accessory line.

斯佩德曾担任时尚杂志《小姐》的编辑,以时装、鞋子、珠宝的设计著称,但最有名的还是她设计的配饰系列。

在这六、七年的时尚杂志采编生涯中,她感到在美国市场缺乏既时尚又实用的手袋,所以,她毅然离开杂志社,去创办自己的品牌,设计心目中最理想的手袋。

She co-founded Kate Spade Handbags in 1993 with husband Andy Spade.

1993年,她和丈夫安迪•斯佩德一起创立了凯特•丝蓓手袋品牌。

Kate Spade sold her namesake brand in 2007. It was bought last year by New York rival designer Coach in a deal worth $2.4 billion.

凯特•丝蓓如今不仅享誉美国潮流界,业务也扩张到了全世界,被潮流人士认为是轻奢领域的代表性品牌。就连凯特王妃、霉霉也都是她的忠实粉丝。

2017年4月,凯特王妃参与了在伦敦皇家剧院举行的音乐剧《42nd Street》首映礼,搭配了凯特•丝蓓的98美元的耳环。
