Today, the Kate Spade brand spans ready-to-wear, shoes, tabletop items, even stationery. But did you know that it all started with one handbag? Well, six to be exact. When the brand’s founder, born Katherine Brosnahan, first launched her eponymous label, her goal was to create the perfect handbag. She started Kate Spade with six bags back in 1993, but there was one that withstood the test of time.
Today, the Sam bag is still a classic hit that women of all ages just can’t get enough of. The boxy bag has evolved over the years, and is now offered in just about every size and color under the sun, from neon pink to silvery gray.
