I have shared this before, but my first ever handbag was a Coach bag. From that day forward I was hooked on bags and it clearly changed my life going forward, as I get to talk about the accessories I love every day. While many designers have come in and out of my collection, Coach will always have a special place in my heart.

A couple months back we had the privilege to take a first look at the Coach Men’s Collection for Spring. The line mixes rugged and cool with some influences of boxing and baseball.
Particularly interesting was the line of wallets that were made out of old baseball gloves. The gloves were taken apart by Coach artisans and then each wallet was sown together by hand.

First Louis Vuitton, then Dior, and now Coach – the artist-designed handbag doesn’t seem to be a trend that will fade any time soon, and based on the lovely, modern pieces that make up the Hugo Guinness for Coach collaboration, that’s a boon to both the accessories and art worlds. Guinness, a London-born, Brooklyn-based artist, lent some of his drawings to a range of 17 Coach men’s accessories that will debut in stores in February with prices ranging from $68 to $398.
Yesterday, Vlad, Amanda and I headed west to what seemed like the end of the world, aka the Hudson River. (Geography for anyone living in Manhattan is utterly skewed.) I would gladly walk 6 avenues any day for the chance to preview Coach‘s upcoming collection of bags and accessories, especially when hosted in the Archive at the Coach Carriage House.
We all know that I’m not exactly the kind of girl who’s happy with a closet full of black, tan and chocolate brown bags. I need variety! I need color! I need chartreuse and coral, if possible! Not to mention that a classic shape with a crazy color is just about the freshest thing going in handbags right now.

There was a time when huge celebrities who largely avoided domestic advertising in order to maintain their pristine images for fans did ad campaigns overseas for big bucks and Americans were none the wiser. That time was before the Internet, and it has very clearly passed. Via Vogue Taiwan, we now have a peek at Gwyneth Paltrow‘s first ads as the international brand ambassador for Coach.
In my experience, most people other adore Coach Poppy Handbags or they hate them, there’s not much of an in-between. And that’s true of most lines that really go for it when it comes to having a point of view – the more personality a bag has, the wider the gulf between the lovers and the haters becomes.
It’s hard to think of an American accessories brand with as devoted a following as Coach; in fact, the New York-based leathergoods giant might not have any domestic competition in the “ardent fandom” department. Those of you who consider yourself a part of that very large group will be excited to check out the new Coach Chelsea Collection, which features totes, satchels and shoulder bags in a variety of leathers and fabrics.
Ok, so this post a little last minute for a Father’s Day gift idea but honestly, I know many of you may be like me and procrastinate. When it comes to both Mother’s Day and Father’s Day, I always try to find a gift that can be sentimental. It gets hard to come up with something year after year, but as much as my dad loves Hermes ties, sometimes a tie gets a little too repetitive.

As the Coach brand expands rapidly, offering everything from the youthful Poppy line to the more refined Kristen collection, many fans of the brand still yearn for the Coach Classics. To many, a “classic Coach bag” might mean the small signature Demi Pouch, but the brand became known for their simple and refined leather Heritage collection in the 1970s, long before its logo fabric became a signature touch.
