If this video doesn’t make you want to run away to NYC,
there must be something wrong with you…
Adeline Adeline, a lovely ladylike bicycle shop in Tribeca, has teamed up with Kate Spade to produce a simply darling limited edition Abici bike. Even though I already have my own beautiful bicyclette, I find myself contemplating adding this classically styled beauty to my stable!
Never one to let an accessory opportunity pass, Kate Spade has created handbags perfect for the lady cyclist. My favorite is the Essex Bike Scout Bag, which comes equipped with d-rings in order to attach this handsome bag to your handlebars.

A film by Kinga Burza for Kate Spade New York
“this is the story of a charming girl
she laughs out loud, sings off key and believes in taking chances
she is quick and curious and playful and strong
she lets her imagination run away with her
she has never been one to stick to convention
she is fond of daydreams that take her places
she can order a cocktail in six different languages
she feels that understated is overrated”

It’s no secret that I have long admired both Kate and Andy Spade for their individual and distinctive style sensibilities. In fact, one of my most treasured handbags is a nylon Sam (by Kate) in fire engine red that I received when I was 16 (after a bit of needling of my dear old dad around Christmastime — he couldn’t imagine why anyone would need a bright red purse! Silly!)
I have always been curious how Kate and Andy successfully collaborate artistically and in business along with managing marriage and family and plumtv gives us a backstage look. We tour the Spade Southampton home, Andy’s Partners & Spade showroom/studio in NoHo, the J.Crew Liquor Store in TriBeCa, and the Spade Upper East Side apartment. I think the homes are the most interesting feature of the three part series. You can immediately sense Kate and Andy have strong design opinions, but somehow they manage to beautifully merge their ideas and envy-inducing living spaces result. You can also sense they are a couple that strives to be fair — Andy talks about moving from downtown to uptown because Kate wanted to, Kate discusses leaving the fashion industry to raise their young daughter. For those of you battling your domestic partners over decor choices, take heart! If Kate and Andy can do it, so can you…
…and now Kate has me wanting a fire engine red library, natch.
