A new designer store will be opening in Victoria Leeds this summer. Kate Spade New York, the luxury fashion brand known for its handbags, will be coming to the shopping centre this month and has been met with a lot of excitement from fashion fans. Posting on Facebook, staff at Victoria Leeds said: “kate spade new york opens this Friday (25th June) in County Arcade. We’ll be announcing some very exciting opening plans soon…”
Fans of the luxury brand commented on the post to share their joy and plan a trip to the new store, with some people saying that it would be worth a special trip to Leeds just for the occasion. The American fashion company is thought to be a main competitor of Michael Kors, with both brands being well-known for their luxury handbags and designer accessories.
And their prices are certainly indicative of a little opulence too, with their popular tote style bags. The new Leeds store has been wrapped in pretty pink, floral window decals which bring with them the iconic Kate Spade pop of colour to the new shop. One local commented to say that they could feel another “spending spree” coming on, while another savvy shopper commented that they would only allow themselves “one bag max”.
