Actually, we’ve got two exciting things to debut for you today. First, of course, is a preview of the handbags to come in the Coach Fall 2013 collection, which we scoped out last week at Coach world headquarters. The bags are very much in keeping with the brand’s upward trajectory in recent seasons: a strong group of traditional shapes (for fall, think classic satchels and ladylike top-handles), rendered in rich colors and materials ranging from pumpkin calf hair to matte black metal studs. Many of the pieces are simply beautiful, and they’re the kinds of bags that will fit into the wardrobes of a wide variety of women. For the logo lovers, you’ll see some Cs here and there, but most of the bags are in keeping with the industry’s preference for a subtler form of branding.
The second exciting debut is what you’ll find after the jump. We’ve been hard at work on ways to make the images on our site as big, bright and clear as possible – all the better for bag-lusting, natch – and we think we’ve come up with a system that you guys will enjoy as much as we do. The images after the jump will scale to the size of your screen, so for a bigger view, make your browser bigger. To move between images in the gallery, you don’t even have to click – it’s fully navigable with the left and right arrow buttons on your keyboard. It only seemed fitting to debut this system with a huge batch of totally drool-worth bag pictures, so check out all of the Coach goodness below.
