Iconic fashion designer Kate Spade was found dead at the age of 55 in her NY apartment on 5 June.
Andy Spade also said that his wife had sought medical attention for mental health struggles in the years before her death. Her death was apparently caused by hanging, WNBC reported. It was a complete shock. "We were best friends trying to work through our problems in the best way we knew how".
Kate Spade's handbags feature vibrant colors and eye-catching polka dots, just as smile-inducing as the quirky quotes - "bright like glitter, and bubbly like Champagne" - that adorn the walls of the fashion designer's stores. We were together for 35 years.
Andy, 55, said he and Kate had lived separately for almost a year, but denied that either of them was seeking a divorce. She loves spending her time outdoors as much as possible.More news: BlackBerry KEY2 images leaked ahead of launch
Brosnahan said he and Spade had discussed "her sadness, which is what we liked to call it".
"There was a moment when you couldn't walk a block in NY without seeing one of her bags, which were just like her; colorful and unpretentious", Wintour said in a statement.
"The family is disgusted and saddened that at this time of great sorrow, Kate's sister who has been estranged from the entire family for more than 10 years would choose to surface with unsubstantiated comments", the source said.

He said they had been living apart, but he was in touch - either visiting with her or speaking with her - every day. "We loved each other very much and simply needed a break", Andy Spade added. "I would never do that, ' and I believed her". "The Medical Examiner has made a determination regarding the death of Katherine Brosnahan, aka Kate Spade in Manhattan on June 5, 2018", Aja Worthy-Davis of the New York Medical Examiner's office said in a statement to Radar.
Meanwhile, Spade and her husband - brother of comedian David Spade - started a new handbag company a few years ago, Frances Valentine. "And I said, 'I don't think so.' I used my maiden name".
"She really felt she could power through it on her own", she said.More news: PGA Tour adopts new global rights strategy with 'pioneering' Discovery deal
