The lat­est Kate Spade New York cof­fee ta­ble books cel­e­brate great women through­out the ages

ELLE (Malaysia) - - AGENDA CULTURE -

The new­est from Kate Spade New York, She: Muses, Vi­sion­ar­ies

and Mad­cap Heroines, is a beau­ti­ful trib­ute to women his­tor­i­cal, fic­tional and ground­break­ing, from Jacque­line Kennedy Onas­sis to Glo­ria Steinem to hero­ine-of-our-time Chi­ma­manda Ngozi Adichie. The book com­bines a mix of lush pho­to­graphs, in­spi­ra­tional quotes and per­sonal es­says and the re­sult is a joy­ful cel­e­bra­tion of wom­an­hood: women who have shaped our his­tory as well as women who have shaped our cul­ture. Take, for in­stance, this quote from Miss Piggy: “I be­lieve that any woman who re­fuses to ac­cept so­ci­ety’s pre­con­ceived no­tions of who or what they can be is a fem­i­nist. I be­lieve any woman who is will­ing to strug­gle, strive – and if nec­es­sary learn karate – to make their mark in the world is a fem­i­nist. And, yes, I be­lieve that any woman who cares about her ap­pear­ance, her star billing and most es­pe­cially her per­cent­age of the gross, is a fem­i­nist. Moi is all of these things.” Who had a mind to dis­agree? Kate Spade New York: SHE: Muses, Vi­sion­ar­ies and Mad­cap Heroines is avail­able from Oc­to­ber 10 at all Kate Spade New York stores.
