Golden Globe-winning actress Rachel Brosnahan came up with a special way to celebrate her late aunt Kate Spade. She recently became the new ambassador of fashion brand Frances Valentine, founded by the celebrated designer.
Spade launched this accessories label alongside her husband Andy in 2016. The couple named this new handbag line after their daughter Frances Beatrix Spade, and it’s really touching to see another member of their family continuing its legacy.
Brosnahan described this collection as a celebration of Spade’s life, spirit, legacy and love of a good color pop. The actress believes we’re always searching for ways to honor those we lost, and she’s grateful for an opportunity to do just that with this collaboration.
“I think when you lose someone you love very, very much, you spend a lot of time trying to think about how to keep their spirit alive, how they can live on for you… In Katy’s case, there is so much of her, and this was an opportunity for us to celebrate her life and her legacy,” explained Brosnahan.
