After news broke of Kate Spade's apparent suicide on Tuesday, fans have been buying the final designs from her most recent accessory brand, Frances Valentine, causing almost all the items on the site's "New Arrivals" page to sell out.
The sold-out products include Spade's
The only new pieces that aren't sold out are two metallic sandals, which are available for pre-order, and red Mary Jane leather flats. However, there's still inventory of her less recent designs on the site.
The rate at which Spade's quirky, colorful products are selling out is a testament to the designer's talent and unique vision, and it shows how much her loyal fans want to own a part of her legacy.
Frances Valentine posted a touching Instagram tribute to its late founder on Wednesday, stating that she'll "remain in our hearts forever." The fate of the brand is uncertain in the wake of her death.
