If you’re the founder numerous of international fashion brands how do you invest (or blow) your money? Andy Spade, the man behind Kate Spade, Jack Spade, Partners & Spade, Sleepy Jones and more, has a proclivity for fine art.
So it only makes sense that online auction house Paddle8 would provide a peek inside his ritzy Upper East Side abode. The space is expectedly overflowing with paintings, artifacts, and enough coffee table books to fill every Starbucks south of Canal.
Works by contemporary artists like George Condo and Chuck Close are complemented by quirky collectibles (see stuffed giraffe), and a range of vintage and antique furnishings. We could get comfortable in a living room like this. Very comfortable.
Paddle8 is slated to launch an auction featuring Spade’s personal collection on January 19th.
