Not sure if all of you know, but my first designer bag ever was the Coach Signature Demi Pouch. This is the bag that started my handbag addiction and the first bag I ever remember truly coveting. I still own this bag (pictured above) and am reminded how a Coach bag changed my life every time I look at it.

Less than two hours ago, we left Coach on Bleecker Street in New York City’s West Village. Fresh off the press (or rather: digital camera), we present to you a detailed preview of Coach’s 2011 Fall Collection of bags and accessories. We saw a lot of structure, less slouch, less oversized, more ladylike, and new hardware incorporated on familiar and loved silhouettes. Fall emphasizes strongly on the new Chelsea collection.

Below are a few of PurseBlog’s favorites, do not miss the official discussion thread over at the PurseForum for the full preview of 100+ images.

We were the first to showcase the Coach Kristin collection with you in August of 2009. Since then, the Kristin collection has turned into one of the most coveted and acclaimed lines by Coach. Back in October of last year, Vlad and I previewed Coach’s Spring collection, in which the Kristins were well represented. (more…)

Coach is kicking off their Guest Blogger Series with PurseBlog! In the beginning of September we asked for your opinion on the new Coach Madison collection. I wanted to integrate your votes and thoughts into my guest blogger article since your opinions matter both to us and Coach.

With the Coach Sophia Satchel garnering the most votes, it ended up being the bag we are partnering with Coach to give away (make sure to enter our giveaway to win a Coach Sophia Satchel!). As I shared in my guest blog, this collection has a bag for everyone and every item is completely wearable. From a bright pop of color to the embossed python look to added dimensionality from quilted leather, this Coach collection suits everyone.

Thank you to Coach for choosing me to be the first blogger for their new series!

Most of the shock value of Coach releasing a bag with a four-figure price tag wore off years ago, but the disparity between the prices of the Coach Madison Calf Hair Brynne Satchel and the Coach Madison Ocelot Sabrina Satchel truly caught be off guard.

The Brynne, left, is made of printed calf hair with leather trim and is 14 inches wide. The Sabrina, on the right, is nylon with leather trim and measures 12 inches across. If you had shown me the bags and asked me to guess, I would have pegged the Brynne at about $700 – one of Coach’s pricier offerings, but not out of the brand’s normal range these days. The Sabrina would have been much lower, probably about $300. On one count, I would have been remarkably close (not much of an accomplishment, considering that this is my job); on the other, not so much. (more…)

We have been lamenting over attempting to find the perfect beach bag. Do you spend $50 or $500, do you get a designer bag or kick-around-bag? It comes down to personal preference and what kind of use the handbag in question will get. What I advise is buying a bag that is in your comfort zone price wise and will perform the task you are looking for.

The Coach Beach Collection is worth checking out, with items illustrated by Pierre Le-Tan, known for his whimsical style and keen eye for color. While the actual beach bags that I would opt for in this collection still cost around $250, they are illustrated beautifully and have the perfect beach feel to them. As far as the illustrated canvas bags go, there is a seahorse, cabana, and umbrella theme. To be perfectly honest, I am having a hard time knowing which I like most. All I can picture is one of these totes, cut off shorts, a tee, my bikini, sunglasses, and a hat. Typical beach wear accessorized by the perfectly cute and fitting beach tote. Each canvas illustrated beach tote is $268 at Coach. (more…)

We keep talking about spring trends in handbags, clearly there are many. We have brought you stories on denim and perforated leather, and today I will tell you about another trend; floral patterns. Typically we would cover this Coach bag on PurseBlog Savvy, but I actually wanted to feature this on PurseBlog.

Coach bags receive quite a bit of flack from many handbag enthusiasts. And while this may be the case, Coach continues to be the brand that starts many people’s handbag obsession on their way into other brands while remaining the go-to brand for many as well. In fact, my first bag was a Coach bag. (more…)

Coach Zebra Brooke

When we were part of the Coach Holiday Program one of the three bags we picked was the Coach Brooke. The Brooke is a favorite of mine, an elegant everyday shape that Coach continues to find a way to change up. While the crackled metallic caught my eye, so too does the Coach Zebra Brooke. (more…)
