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. (more…)
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. With their bright, in-your-face, pink-and-sparkly persona, the Poppy bags were about as divisive as it gets. They were also less expensive than other Coach bags and positioned to appeal to a younger customer, which clearly worried some lifetime Coach devotees.
It looks as though the brand might be trying to establish a little bit of middle ground with the new Coach Poppy Pushlock Collection. (Not to be confused with Mulberry’s similarly named Polly Pushlock bags.) These monotone leather designs are still something of a steal compared to average Coach pricing, but the feel is a bit more chic and upmarket without losing the line’s youthful appeal. More photos of the line and prices after the jump, or you can shop the line via Coach.com. (more…)
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. Several more pictures, after the jump. (more…)
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.
If you are looking for a last minute Father’s Day gift option, have an accessory from Coach monogrammed.
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.
With the current 70s trend in full swing, NET-A-PORTER Buying Director Holli Rogers felt it was the perfect moment to bring back some of the original Coach designs and introduce them to a new generation of women. The five bags of the Coach Classics Collection will be exclusively carried at NET-A-PORTER.com and are sure to sell out quickly. Click for more on the Coach Classic Collection!
The PurseBlog team wants to wish all of you a Happy Easter and Passover! We decided to spring into the holiday with some bunny accessories, because they are the perfect addition to your Spring wardrobe.
On the Savvy side, I found the Coach Mink Bunny Key Fob which I plan to put on my key ring for spring. Although it is white leather and fur and may get dirty easier, I love having something light and fluffy to hang my keys on and this Coach key fob is so cute. Price is $38 via Coach (style number is #92869).
If you are looking for a bag charm, Hermes is known to entice with their circular leather animal charms like the bunny I have. Vlad got me this for Christmas and it is such a fun way to give my bag a little extra character. Seeing a smiling bunny face dangle from my bag really adds a nice touch. Buy via Hermes.
Hope you all are enjoying the holiday and the arrival of spring!
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!
