People who know me, know that I’m a jeans-and-T-shirt kind of gal. I have an extensive collection of pieces that are easy to wear and not considered statement pieces, I leave my bags to do most of the attention-catching. But after seeing the droves of people at New York Fashion Week, I always reconsider some fun pieces that I want to add to my wardrobe.
Coach Handbags and Purses
New York Fashion Week usually proceeds in ways that are somewhat predictable, but for Fall 2014, some important things have changed. Not only have venues and guest lists gotten a shakeup this season, but Coach Fall 2014 debuted on a runway instead of at a private event later in the season, which is something that both we and legions of Coach lovers were pretty interested to see.
Victoria’s Secret Angel Karlie Kloss was recently spotted leaving a special Victoria’s Secret Angels Party in NYC on Tuesday night with a sleek, black Coach Large Borough Bag. Karlie is doing two of her biggest clients a solid here by doing a little Angel duty while carrying a hot new Coach bag, because as you’ve probably guessed, Karlie is one of the faces of Coach’s most recent campaign.
The advent of the Coach Borough Bag has left us (and a lot of other bag lovers) curious to see what will come next in the massive American brand’s handbag evolution. Today, we have one of the first answers to that question: the Coach Bleecker Mini Pocket Carryall, which costs less than $300, features zero permanent exterior branding and comes in a whopping seven colors, from basic black to acid green (with a couple gorgeous pastels in between).
If you (like us) have been lusting after Coach’s new apparel line, full of fantastic fisherman sweaters, gorgeous knits and one surprisingly lust-worthy logo sweatshirt, you’re in luck. The brand’s first-ever apparel line is having its first-ever sale, and it includes a healthy discount on all of those items and more. If we were you, we’d skip straight to shopping the sale (we already have), but if you’re unconvinced, check out some of our favorite markdowns below.
‘Tis the season for giving, and today, we’ve teamed up with Coach to make one of you our lucky recipient. Your prize? The sparkly, totally glam Coach Madison Jeweled Zip Clutch, perfect for New Year’s Eve and all the parties that 2014 may hold. The color combination makes this bag basically seasonless, and we’re here to make it yours.
We’ve talked several times about Coach’s new direction over the past couple of months, but there’s still an impressively large swath of the brand’s current lineup that we’ve yet to explore. (For instance, jewelry—you should really see the jewelry.) Because Coach offers luxury at every price and a totally modern look, it’s an ideal place to do a little bit of holiday gift shopping for a lot of different people on your list, and that’s what we’re here to do.
I’ve been so in love with the Coach Borough Bags since they first debuted, and since I added one to my collection, the bag has made its way into my regular rotation. Even salespeople at high-end stores have asked question about my Borough, and when I noticed how much attention it’s received, I realized I needed to give it a spot in our Purseonals lineup.
When you live in New York City, you get used to encountering a lot of unique things in your day to day life. You’ve been shoo’d away from movie sets by underpaid PAs while simply trying to get to work, you’ve seen style bloggers plying their trades with their photographer-boyfriends on the way to brunch, and you may have even spotted the legendary Bill Cunningham shooting street style in his blue smock.
If its Fall 2013 collection is any indication, Coach would like you to reconsider your ideas of what kind of brand it is. That applies to everyone, both fans and skeptics, and Coach is prepared to back up that request with everything from brand new, totally chic handbags to lines of outerwear and leather apparel that are so sophisticated and luxurious-looking that they would be right at home on a front-row Fashion Week attendee.
