"our story begins 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 swooned. this year for our 25th anniversary, we brought back sam in a bevy of sizes, colors and prints (like this version, embellished with a geometric floral mosaic print) that you'll want to lovingly hold and gaze at for years to come."
