The husband of Kate Spade has posted a touching tribute to his late wife, nearly two months after she took her own life.

In an Instagram post, Andy Spade reveals he and daughter, Bea, celebrated Christmas in July in memory of the fashion designer.


“She was born Christmas Eve, 1962,” Spade captioned a photograph of a decorated tree. “She loved the midwest, the desert, and the city.”

“I was lucky enough to have dear friends let my daughter and stay at their home through a difficult time,” Spade wrote of the period following Kate’s unexpected death. “This tree was standing alone beside the house, so we ordered those multicolored, old fashioned lights from Amazon or Target and another dear personal friend gave me a really long extension cord and Bea and I cut a star out of the cardboard box the lights came on and wrapped it in Reynolds Wrap (™) like we do every Christmas.”

Kate, who became famous thanks to her iconic handbags, was only 55 when she passed away on June 5th, 2018.
