Deborah Lloyd embodies the Kate Spade New York woman in more ways than one.
The brand’s president and chief creative officer is a collector of vintage jewels and clothes — i.e., cocktail dresses — as well as fashion illustrations and eclectic art, which she displays in the Brooklyn brownstone she shares with her husband, Simon Arscott, and their two standard schnauzers, Stanley and Lulu. Bright pink is her favorite color and she enjoys making a statement with a flash of the electric hue, like teaming a black-and-white print shift with shocking pink heels. It’s that sort of sensibility that makes her the perfect personality for the brand.
