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 wicker is true to the original silhouette and features a chic denim lining. we added an optional crossbody strap with jewelry-like hardware (texting was not a thing in the '9s), along with tiny feet on the bottom to keep it pristine for years to come. the enamel logo plate is an iconic finishing touch.
