As any fan knows, Coach is in a state of flux right now. Gone is longtime creative force Reed Krakoff, and in his place, accessories guru Stuart Vevers, late of Loewe and Mulberry, has arrived to take the stalwart American accessories brand in a more fashion-forward direction.
Coach Handbags and Purses(Page 3)
People who know me, know that I’m a jeans-and-T-shirt kind of gal. I have an extensive collection of pieces that are easy to wear and not considered statement pieces, I leave my bags to do most of the attention-catching. But after seeing the droves of people at New York Fashion Week, I always reconsider some fun pieces that I want to add to my wardrobe.
New York Fashion Week usually proceeds in ways that are somewhat predictable, but for Fall 2014, some important things have changed. Not only have venues and guest lists gotten a shakeup this season, but Coach Fall 2014 debuted on a runway instead of at a private event later in the season, which is something that both we and legions of Coach lovers were pretty interested to see.
Victoria’s Secret Angel Karlie Kloss was recently spotted leaving a special Victoria’s Secret Angels Party in NYC on Tuesday night with a sleek, black Coach Large Borough Bag. Karlie is doing two of her biggest clients a solid here by doing a little Angel duty while carrying a hot new Coach bag, because as you’ve probably guessed, Karlie is one of the faces of Coach’s most recent campaign.
The advent of the Coach Borough Bag has left us (and a lot of other bag lovers) curious to see what will come next in the massive American brand’s handbag evolution. Today, we have one of the first answers to that question: the Coach Bleecker Mini Pocket Carryall, which costs less than $300, features zero permanent exterior branding and comes in a whopping seven colors, from basic black to acid green (with a couple gorgeous pastels in between).
If you (like us) have been lusting after Coach’s new apparel line, full of fantastic fisherman sweaters, gorgeous knits and one surprisingly lust-worthy logo sweatshirt, you’re in luck. The brand’s first-ever apparel line is having its first-ever sale, and it includes a healthy discount on all of those items and more.
We’ve talked several times about Coach’s new direction over the past couple of months, but there’s still an impressively large swath of the brand’s current lineup that we’ve yet to explore. (For instance, jewelry—you should really see the jewelry.) Because Coach offers luxury at every price and a totally modern look, it’s an ideal place to do a little bit of holiday gift shopping for a lot of different people on your list, and that’s what we’re here to do.
