Nestled right in the center of New York City overlooking 5th Ave on the perfect last day of winter, Coach found a spot to showcase their Fall 2012 Legacy collection. The new location from their typical preview gave way to an entirely new look for the brand, almost like a relaunch. Gone is Coach monogramming (at least from the featured lines), and in its place is classic leather and beautiful colors. Coach dug back into its archives to reinvigorate their Fall 2012 line with its new Legacy collection.
Clean and classic lines were the forefront of each design as was beautiful hues of leather. The first thing that caught my attention was the wall of duffel bags in a rainbow of colors. The Coach Duffel is a classic and I had a hard time deciding which color I wanted, but I am leaning towards the bright pink or blue.
From there I found my way to a few setups featuring different bags, shoes, and accessories. There was a touch of colorblocking and animal print, but the majority of the designs stayed true to the classic Legacy by offering wearable designs, classic hardware, and sturdy leather.
The back of the preview showcased a table of small accessories, and Coach did not disappoint. From colorful coin pouches to laptop sleeves, there was a little bit of everything in all the right colors.
Most important to note is the new structured clutch that was seen at the preview. Coach is not known for making a true clutch, but for the upcoming season, the brand decided to try something new. I adored the tan leather clutch they showed with its spacious body and handheld cutout. It was both ladylike and chic.
Of course Coach will offer more of the designs we expect from them as this is only the Legacy collection, but I love the direction its taking. The Coach girl is growing up but staying true to her roots, and this is precisely what Coach showed with their Fall 2012 Legacy collection. Shop Coach now.
