Quote of the Day (Ginia Bellafante, on Kate Spade’s ‘Old Loyalties and New Aspirations’)

“A Catholic schoolgirl from Kansas City, Mo., with a degree from Arizona State and a father who was in construction, Ms. Spade transcended her background in ways that are not easily possible in the most rarefied corners of Manhattan life. It is hard not to wonder what kind of toll it takes to merge past selves with present identities, to hold on to old loyalties and new aspirations. Someday Kate Spade might have told us, or maybe, in the end, she did.”— Ginia Bellafante, “Big City: The Unsustainable Toll of Being Kate Spade,” The New York Times, June 10, 2018
