Deborah Lloyd Taps Kate Spade’s DNA
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.

Since joining Kate Spade New York from Banana Republic, where she was executive vice president of product design and development, in October 2007, Lloyd has become a brand architect who has, in tandem with chief executive officer Craig Leavitt, conducted a successful overhaul and expansion of the brand. As she put it, she considers her role akin to that of a conductor who can “bring all the different tunes from all the orchestras together and make sure that the symphony makes sense.”
