Coach Legacy Colorblock Clutch

I’m not sure if you realized, but up until a couple seasons ago, Coach didn’t make clutches. They had every other bag to fill any collection, including tons of wristlets, but they didn’t make clutches. I remember going to their Fall 2012 preview way back in February, and the company was buzzing about the introduction of clutches, an integral design to any brand’s book.

Michelle Monaghan Coach Legacy Duffle

One of my favorite movies of all time is Made of Honor. Yes, it seems like a predictable chick filck, and while that’s not entirely incorrect, it’s also incredibly sweet and fun. Anytime it comes on TV I watch it, and I may or may not own the DVD and pop it in every few weeks.

A few months ago, Coach unveiled a return to its roots with the Coach Legacy collection of handbags and accessories. I spent a long while perusing the bags in all their color glory and realized that this is the Coach I knew and loved.

Coach Men's Bags

No, you haven’t traveled in some kind of time warp back to Monday. (How cruel would that be?) Yes, these are man bags. Just like men’s oversized watches, oxfords and loafers have become a trendy (not to mention totally chic) option for women in recent years, a men’s bag can also add a fresh, slightly unexpected element to an ensemble.

Louis Vuitton may have pioneered the idea, but now handbags designers collaborating with high-profile artists is all the rage. Everyone from Dior to Coach has given it a shot, and in the case of Coach, it seems as though the company has judged such collaborations to be a roaring success. Fresh off of a much-loved menswear teamup with Hugo Guinness, the American handbag company has tapped New York artist James Nares to lend his prints to a collection of totes that will debut a week from today.

Coach x James Nares will feature the artist’s signature waves, which he paints on huge canvasses while hanging from a harness above them. Coach has translated those pieces into a set of six tote bags, each of which will be made in limited editions of 175. The leather-trimmed canvas totes will retail for $798 when they hit Coach stores and Coach.com on April 20. Check with your local store to see if they’ll be receiving pieces from the collection, or better yet, sign up for notification of the bags’ arrival at Coach.com.

Featured: Coach for Fall 2012

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.

One of my favorite winners from this year’s Oscars was Octavia Spencer. The Best Supporting Actress from the movie The Help heard her name called out and was completely and totally in shock. I love seeing someone genuinely surprised and thrilled by an award, and clearly Octavia was. Her acceptance speech was personal and moving as she stood at the podium barely able to hold it together, I was jumping off my couch clapping.

During the red carpet arrivals, Octavia wore a beaded, shirred white Tadaschi Soshi gown. But after the award show she was caught backstage gripping her golden Oscar and carrying a more spacious bag, the Coach Pinnacle Allie (more…)

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. Over the past few years, Coach has churned out higher quality and priced items season after season. The true Coachies (a name given to Coach bag lovers by our loyal Coach PurseForum members) have grown with the brand and found the collections that they love most.

For $800, brands like Alexander Wang and Louis Vuitton can be purchased, but right now I am crushing on the Coach Pinnacle Leather Allie. (more…)

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. I like my leather accessories to show a nice patina over time with use, with these wallets you get the rugged shine, smell and touch right from the start.

I never seriously considered Coach as a major contender in men’s accessories until I saw this preview up close. The prices are great and the style is on-point.
