We've long been fans of Kate Spade New York's colourful, quirky aesthetic over at Grazia HQ as well as the brand's print-tastic collections and fun sense of style. It also makes us nostalgic for Sex and The City's Charlotte York and her Upper East Side polish. Oh, how we loved her Kate Spade New York accessorising...
But 2012's Kate Spade New York has a rather different super fan and she's not a TV sitcom character either (though Gossip Girl's Blair Waldorf is certainly in the running). KSNY's current unofficial ambassador is none other than Pippa Middleton!
Blair Waldorf and Charlotte York accessorise with Kate Spade New York
In fact, we can't remember a week in the last few months when we haven't seen a new snap of the Duchess of Cambridge's sister showing off her latest Kate Spade New York wears. Pippa's got the fab oversized sunnies, she's nabbed the colour pop jeans, treated herself to not one but two of the colour block cardigans from the Spring Summer collection and has been seen in a gorgeous peplum blouse. As if that wasn't enough, Pippa's carried the brand's Delevan Terrace wicker bag more times than any other bag in her summer wardrobe!
Across the pond, Kate Spade New York are loving Pippa right back. They exclusively spoke to Grazia Daily about how much they admire Pippa's "feminine yet modern sense of style". "She always looks effortlessly put together and Pippa isn’t afraid to wear colour – which is one of our favourite things here at Kate Spade New York". Hear, hear!
And what of the Kate Spade New York bag Pippa can't put down? "We think it’s fantastic how Pippa repeats her outfits and accessories, it sets a great example that fashion doesn’t have to be thrown out after one wear." Well, when accessories look this good, we have to conquer.

Finally, as the new Autumn Winter collection hits the shops, what are Pippa's latest purchases? The Kate Spade New York Post Street Nadine and Carnegie Hall Carlye bags (above), that's what. Do you want them too? Thought so.
