Kate Spade, an accessories editor at Mademoiselle, was frustrated she couldn't find the fashionable, utilitarian handbag she'd been craving for years and set out to design the perfect one out of her apartment. She made samples out of construction paper. She combined sleek shapes and colorful palettes in an entirely new way and debuted six versions of a bag called Sam. Women and fashion editors loved the designs. They sparked a revolution in accessories.
