When Stuart Vevers transformed a portion of NYC’s iconic High Line for the Coach Spring 2016 show, I knew we were in for something special. Everything from the set to the music to the setting gave us a very floral infused 70s vibe and this translated into every item walking the runway.

Stuart showed prints on prints for much of the collection, and while I don’t usually opt for that combination for my personal wardrobe, I fell in love with the tiny floral prints on bags. I found the Coach Saddle 23 Bag in printed haircalf and knew this was the bag my spring wardrobe needs. Many floral prints are a bit too much for my liking, with light pastel colors and overly-obvious florals, but the flowers on this bag are compact and work so beautifully with the black background.

The bag reimagines Coach’s iconic 1972 Pouch in haircalf with the prairie floral print atop. Dimensions are just right for everyday use, 9″ x 7.75″ x 3.45″ and the strap adjusts with the ability to wear short, long, or crossbody with five-hole adjustments.

This bag shows what the new Coach era is all about, edginess mixed with tradition, and I love it. Buy via Coach for $895.

    Very cute, but I just wouldn’t pay that much for a Coach bag.

  • Sparky

    Spring…? This looks like a fall or winter bag to me. I think of haircalf as a cold weather bag.
    Anyone know what the fashion etiquette is on haircalf?

  • FashionableLena

    $900?! For Coach?
    Not happening. Even though it’s floral, that black background screams fall/winter.

    Givenchy wanna be… too much for a Coach bag IMO

    • Sparky

      Agreed. A lot of bags on their site in the $700 – $1500 range. For $1500 it’s a small ostrich cross body.

      They seem to be aggressively pushing up the price points. Risky move because there are customer thresholds regarding price / perceived value / status. I’ll spend $3000 on a Prada but never $900 on a Coach. I’d rather spend $100 more for another Gucci Disco. Most I’d pay for a Coach is $450.

    That print is so dated in my opinion. Back in 2000-2001 I had an Isabella Fiore with almost the exact print, but actually prettier because it had scattered sequins on the flowers. In my opinion, there’s very little difference between Isabella Fiore and Coach, and I’d never pay $900 for either one. Nope.

    Love the bag but I just can’t do haircalf. Theyre just so delicate and the haircalf always ends up rubbing off. I had a haircalf Prada tote and it started rubbing off the second time I carried it. I was so sad.
