It was the bag you absolutely had to own when you were 13. The Sam, first released in 1993, was the original no frills bag that was equal parts utilitarian and timeless. Black and boxy in shape, the waterpoof nylon bag went with everything in your closet and that’s why you carried it everywhere. Or wanted to, at least (shout out to those whose parents absolutely refused to buy you one!) Now, in celebration of its 25th birthday, Kate Spade New York will reissue the brand’s original Sam handbag with fresh new updates, including a range of new materials (think leather, wicker, denim, canvas) and new size options. Shop the first available batch of bags which just dropped on katespade.com.
