In it, he clarifies some of the reports surrounding her death and speaks candidly about her struggles with anxiety and depression.

Spade hanged herself with a scarf inside her home at 850 Park Ave. near East 77th Street on Tuesday morning, leaving a suicide note to her daughter Frances Beatrix Spade, 13.

"There was no indication and no warning that she would do this", he said.

He told the New York Times that Kate Spade suffered from depression and anxiety for many years and she was actively seeking help.

Andy Spade said he and his wife had chose to take a break and had lived in separate residences for 10 months.

First daughter Ivanka Trump, a fellow New Yorker with a clothing and accessories line, wrote on Twitter that Spade's death was "a painful reminder that we never truly know another's pain or the burden they carry". Andy Spade, her husband, addresses those matters and more in his statement.

"There was a moment when you couldn't walk a block in NY without seeing one of her bags, which were just like her; colorful and unpretentious", Wintour said in a statement.

"She was actively seeking help and working closely with her doctors to treat her disease, one that takes far too many lives", he says. She was the kindest person I've ever known and my best friend for 35 years.

He stressed that Kate had not been abusing any substances or alcohol, nor had there been any business problems. "There were no business problems".

The businessman has now confirmed the rumours, explaining how the couple had been living apart but close to each other and had been co-parenting their daughter Bea. We loved creating our businesses together. "Kate loved Bea so very much". They moved to NY in the mid-1980s before Kate launched Kate Spade Handbags in 1993.

Coach bought the Kate Spade New York company in 2017 for $2.4 billion.

"I have yet to see any note left behind and am appalled that a private message to my daughter has been so heartlessly shared with the media", he said.

"My main concern is Bea and protecting her privacy as she deals with the unimaginable grief of losing her mother", his statement concludes. "We loved Kate dearly and will miss her terribly".
