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.


For Spring 2011 the Coach Kristin Collection takes center stage in their line yet again. Coach still offers their Poppy collection for those that want the glitz and fun, their monogram bags for those that want to sport the brand’s recognized logo, but the Kristin collection fits into its own sleek and refined category that I absolutely appreciate and adore.

    

When I walked into the preview of this collection, I was immediately drawn to the Woven Leather Sage option. Both colors (a light denim and white mist) work perfectly with the design of the bag. I get a very polished feel from this line, which I love to see from Coach. It is the many options that make the Kristin Collection my weekend obsession for this week.

    • Kelly

      the last beige one is so pretty

    • ninjaninja

      I’m not a fan of Coach either, but this bag is seriously cute.

  • Lala

    I have not purchased a coach bad in a long time. But, I like this collection ,just purchased the sage round satchel today with a 25% off coupon not a bad deal.

  • ninjaninja

    The nude ones would be so great for summer.

    This reminds me of the Coach of old. Beautiful handbags for real women. While the Poppy collection is fun, as a wife and mother, I would like something that is a little more classic and everyday wearable. But NOT dowdy. I definitely don’t want to look as though I’m carrying my grandmother’s purse.
    And, the teal and beige are definitely on my list.

  • Alecia

    Kristin is an impressive collection from Coach. I like the embossed croc satchel.

  • delaney

    i like the structured but slouchy feel on this line.

  • Amy

    I love the look, but the handle doesn’t seem very durable, IMO.

  • Jacqueline Suzanne

    Love the Kristin collection!!! LV/Chanel girl who loves Coach leather bags!!

  • window of happiness

    Love them and I’m drooling over their colors! So lovely!

  • Christine

    I dont normally like Coach, but that bag is pretty cute!

  • Aeree

    I bought the round sage in the mushroom color…its a really nice bag BUT it weighs so much!! had to return it almost wanted to keep it after being told that it was sold out in the color…but i knew i wouldnt carry it bc its so heavy… :(

  • Karin bag4bag

    Lovely…but I’ve never been a fan of gold hardware, so I would choose the lighter colors that don’t highlight the gold, blend rather than contrast. I LOVE the Kristin Elevated Leather sage round satchel.

    Aren’t the names of bags a real mouthful these days !

  • adrienne z

    these are nice bags!

  • sue

    The Kristins are the first Coach bags I’ve considered in a looooong time – nice feature article!

  • Traci B

    I love it!!!!

  • NaTTiC

  • Yun

    Whoa! I never really liked Coach but this style makes me think twice!

  • Musette

    This line is nice. Like others on here, I rarely consider Coach but these would be great bags for summer (great pricepoints, too!!)

    Thanks for a wonderful review!

  • Pamela Herndon

    Love the turquoise.

  • KMac

    Wow, I love these, and like others above I have never been a fan of Coach. I love the green and the python ones. Very cute and not tooo expensive.

  • Cathy Fitz

    I really like the hobo style yet classic styling. I think, though, that the shorter straps are a little short for such a large bag. Glad it has the longer strap.

  • annabelle

    coach is actually getting better. wow

  • susan

    I do carry Coach all leathers and this collection is drawing me in fast

  • Jacqueline Suzanne

    Today, I just purchased the Kristin Elevated Leather Sage Round Satchel. It is beautiful in person!!

  • Ruhee

    The beige one is really pretty.

  • Raphaela

    Doesn’t anyone think that the Kristin Elevated Leather Sage Round Satchel is similar to Chloe’s Marni series? Like most ppl here, I’m not exactly fond of Coach but I really like the dusty rose pink leather round satchel. Now, if only they’ve got that in bright yellow or burgundy….

  • Fanny

    When they first came out I was excited. It has been awhile since Coach has done anything exciting. I have a Kristin and now I will purchase another one.

  • Kellyx

    Have not see anything this desirable from coach since e Madison series ..the only thing tt may turn me away is e weight..it looks heavy with all those hardware!

  • Lulugurl

    I love the redesign!

  • LDJ

    I know longer care for Coach bags either. But I do like the python and the croc bag.

  • Krista

    I NEED the green one!

  • Miriam

    I am pleasantly surprised!

  • 19yearslater

    I love the Kristin line, apart from the clinky hardware. That bothers me, personally.

  • Shannon

    I love the line, the colors are amazing. I plan on buying a hobo or satchel this week with my 25% off coupon.

  • Candace

    I love this version of the Kristin collection better than its previous iteration, although both are lovely. I just like how the outer pocket in this version is sleeker.

  • Marianna

    I just ordered the white woven Sage and I can’t wait to see it IRL!

  • Kimberly Adams

    Purchased the Kristin woven bag and it was very big and very heavy, promptly returned. And the $1,000 price tag was a bummer. But I ended up with the Kristin elevated pink satchel and it is amazing! Also seeing Eve Longoria and her gorgeous self carrying the bag was an incentive. Highly recommend the Kristin collection!

  • klynneann

    I’m still loving the Kristen collection and the new fall colors are just gorgeous.

  • MJMorten

     I need help~ This image has been curculating pinterest today and there is word the turquoise Kristen bag is a fake becauase Coach never mixes metals. I am not an expert so can I get an opinion? Thanks! http://pinterest.com/pin/221028294182171574/
