kate spade new york summer ’18 emerson studded small sam

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 smaller version constructed from quilted leather with golden studs) that you’ll want to lovingly hold and gaze at for years to come.
