Actress Minka Kelly is the very first celeb we’ve spotted carrying one of the limited edition Coach x Krink bags from Coach’s latest capsule collection. (For the extended deets, check out Amanda’s full write-up on the Coach x Krink collab.) Here’s Minka landing at LAX, carrying a Coach x KRINK Leather Weekend Tote, which obviously makes a most optimal carry-on.
In the past several seasons, Coach’s leather goods offerings have become a force to be reckoned with. Sure, the brand has long been popular for its reasonably priced handbags and logo-covered accessories, but as of late, its leather game has been so on-point that I can’t even begin to enumerate the times I’ve heard people say, “I’m usually not a Coach fan, but I would kill to have this bag.” Now it looks like both of the men who brought about that upward trajectory are leaving the company.
Here’s the ridiculously pretty and perfect Emmy Rossum, carrying her “Bright Coral” Coach Legacy Mini Tanner Crossbody Bag after a lunch date in Beverly Hills, CA. I love this Mini Tanner for so many reasons: the bold, eye-popping spring hue, the lavishly oversized tassels, and the fact that it’s just big enough to fit an e-reader, for starters.
Coach’s artist collaborations have been pretty unbeatable since they began with Hugo Guinness last year. The stalwart American leather brand hooked up with James Nares next, and now Coach has come up with a collection of men’s (but they’re unisex, let’s be real) bags and small accessories with Brooklyn-based street artist Craig Costello, also know as KRINK.
Sometimes when we feature a Look for Less, the less expensive bag was clearly designed in the image of the more expensive bag. That’s one of the duties of mid-priced brands, after all; taking a look that’s out of reach for most consumers, reinterpreting it in the brand’s aesthetic and making it more accessible.
