World-Famous Designer Makes Bizarre Tribute To Kate Spade

Jena Greene | Reporter

World famous shoe and bag designer Kenneth Cole issued a very confusing tribute to the now-deceased fashion visionary Kate Spade on Tuesday.

After learning about Kate Spade’s apparent suicide, Cole fired off a less than sensitive tweet that left many people scratching their heads. (RELATED: REPORT: Kate Spade’s Marriage Problems May Have Led To Suicide)

“‘I believed that I could, so I did.’ She alone didn’t change the handbag world but she was an inspiring accessory. #KateSpade #RIP,” he wrote. The tweet has since been deleted.

And probably for good reason. After tweeting out his bizarre statement, Cole received massive backlash for his tone deaf response to the situation.

Cole later apologized for his tweet and reissued a statement on his colleague’s death.

He followed up the tweet with an emailed statement to the Daily Mail.

“I often say ‘we may not heel the world, but we hope to be an accessory,'” he said, playing on the word ‘heal.’
