our story began in 1993 with a boxy, black nylon handbag called sam. we wanted something utilitarian and timeless--a bag that could go with everything from jeans to a cocktail dress. sam did, and women and fashion editors alike fell for its fresh, simple shape. our sam medium satchel in pebbled leather is true to the original silhouette and features a crinkle patent leather-effect lining in a pop color. we added a removable wristlet pouch that fits into the interior slip pocket and an optional crossbody strap with jewelry-like hardware (texting was not a thing in the '90s), along with tiny feet on the bottom to keep it pristine for years to come. the enamel logo plate is an iconic finishing touch.
