The tagline from Coach for this bag is entirely fitting: Meet your new main squeeze.
Everything about this bag is begging to be held and even cuddled with. Rarely do bags make me say I want to squeeze them (usually I reserve that for cute squishy babies), but this updated Coach classic is really making me want to grab one and try it out in person.
Today Coach launched its Coach Pillow Tabby which updates the Tabby, a House staple, with ultra-soft and luxe Nappa leather. I always liked the Tabby silhouette, but the Pillow Tabby is a bag I want to hug and on top of the tactile nature of the bag, I find it to be a highly aesthetically pleasing bag. The soft Nappa leather pairs well with the more compact shoulder bag shape, offering a different texture to pair with your wardrobe that is less sleek but still feels cool and modern.
The Pillow Tabby reimagines the archival 1970s Coach design with plush, soft leather and the traditional C hardware closure is wrapped in tonal leather as well. There are two detachable straps that allow you to carry the bag by hand, as a shorter shoulder bag, or you can also wear it crossbody. The closure is a snap closure with the C hardware and on the inside you’ll find fabric lining and an inside zip pocket that sits in the center to separate the bag into two compartments. Overall dimensions are 10.25″ L x 6″ H x 3″ W.
There’s a good variety of colors including pink, grey, black and ivory and each feels like the best combo of vintage and modern. While the size seems to be a good daily carry (I can never fully tell until I see a bag for myself and judge it’s dimensions and shape in person), Coach showed a supersized version on its site as well. A handful of celebs posed with one of the new Pillow Tabby bags of their choosing (the versions actually for sale) along with an Extra-Extra large version of the bag as well. However, the extra-extra large version was photographed just for the campaign and not for sale, but I’d like to petition Coach to sell these because I’d treat it like an art piece/pouf in the corner of my closet.
