The outlets are great for bargains, but often the decor is much plainer and they just don't have the atmosphere and quirkiness of regular Kate stores. One place I have wanted to visit for a few years now is Kate Spade's flagship store on Madison Avenue, New York, so when I knew I'd be spending a couple of days in the Big Apple during my recent trip to New England, I was like, yaaasssss!!
Set over four floors, the store stocks the entire KS clothing, shoe, jewellery and homeware ranges. I KNOW.
There's not much I can say about the store other than it's the most gorgeous shop I've ever visited and if I could just live there, I would.
One of the quirky features of the store is the restroom on the fourth floor - it's basically a KS lover's dream loo, with monochrome bow-print wallpaper and sumptuous seating.
Aside from the beautiful store, the KS staff were also lovely, offering the Husband and I apple cider and cookies while we browsed.
