New York is a city of rich, intense, constantly changing visuals. From the iconic architecture to the endlessly interesting people who dwell here, there’s so much to look at and take in that sometimes we don’t know where to look next. That means that sometimes we miss the incredible work of New York’s legions of talented muralists and street artists, but now that spring is in the air, we’ve teamed up with Coach to hit the streets, shoot some exclusive photos, explore the brand’s beautiful Spring 2014 collection and highlight some of our favorite public art in the city we all call home.
Coach Handbags and Purses
As any fan knows, Coach is in a state of flux right now. Gone is longtime creative force Reed Krakoff, and in his place, accessories guru Stuart Vevers, late of Loewe and Mulberry, has arrived to take the stalwart American accessories brand in a more fashion-forward direction. We brought you exclusive photos of Coach Fall 2014 back when the brand staged its first-ever runway show at New York Fashion Week in February, and last week, we had an opportunity to get up-close-and-personal with the bags, as well as the collection’s excellent outwear, knits and shoes.
If you’re a fan of the Coach Borough Bag, spring is going to be super exciting for you. Coach’s lookbook showed up in our inbox last week, and not only is it full of striped and patchwork takes on the bag, but the Borough now comes in sizes ranging from weekender to micro-mini. The bag’s handles also get translated to a slightly simpler bag, the Coach Town Tote, for those who found the Borough’s many compartments a bit daunting.
Kirsten Dunst was recently spotted getting a nosh to-go in Studio City, CA while carrying a pebbled leather “Oxblood” Coach Mini Borough Bag. She does not look ecstatic to be caught schlepping around in her gym clothes, but at least she can rest easy knowing that her handbag choice is solid. You can get Kirsten’s exact Mini Borough for $378 at Coach.
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.
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.
