Yesterday, Vlad, Amanda and I headed west to what seemed like the end of the world, aka the Hudson River. (Geography for anyone living in Manhattan is utterly skewed.) I would gladly walk 6 avenues any day for the chance to preview Coach‘s upcoming collection of bags and accessories, especially when hosted in the Archive at the Coach Carriage House. While we were there to focus on Spring 2012, my eyes continuously wandered to case after case of Coach staples from the past. But that will come another day; today is all about the upcoming collection.

There were many touches of what we have come to know from Coach, like the Kristin line, yet my immediate and constant attention was drawn to the new reincarnation of the Coach Willis. This bag was first released in the early 90s and has been reinvigorated many times. But this take on the Willis won’t have you wondering ‘whatchu talkin’ bout Willis’ at all. In fact, you will most likely be in love. The compact size and ladylike shape is kept current with a long East/West option and colorblocking renditions as well. The classics colors are there as well, focusing on the contrast stitching and quality leather. This year is Coach’s 70th Anniversary and the Willis is taking center stage. Also, the Coach tags that we all love are a major story for holiday and spring as well. Which bag(s) is you favorite?

    Welllll….the leather apron is nice!

  • Earmuffs

    I really like the new look of the tag. It’s little details like that that makes a difference. I thought this collection was the best I’ve seen!

  • marinaharbour

    I haven’t been buying Coach for a very long time, but this collection is really amazing!! Love it!!

  • Harry

    Nothing special, just generic old coach

    • suz

      Yes…but that’s what great about Coach. I can (and do) pull out a bag from 25 years ago and it’s still chic, timeless and in good taste. the tag thing makes me laugh, however……back in the day, the very first thing you did when you got a coach bag was take the tag off. Now they’ve made them so facey they are nearly jewelry.

    Gorgeous! I love the focus on the tag in the big picture, I’m always excited to see what Coach does with them from season to season.

  • mollysmom

    No. 4 is really cute. I haven’t bought a Coach purse in ages, but that one might tempt me if it is well made.

  • linda

    I am going to get the new willis, in pink or silver, and one for my daughter, also love the cobra navy sophia and want a white bag, not sure which one, always hard to pick from a picture due to size, i love the collection, can’t wait for it to be in retails stores, would love the leather parker xlg tattoo to reappear again

  • Lynnie

    I think I’m going to get a leather colorblock Willis bag in when it goes on sale, it would be too cute!

  • cheapshoebags

    I do not like the style very much

  • Flajf0665

    I recently received the coach poppy purse….be very careful if you decide to purchase this.  The leather is very sensitive and picks up marks very easily.  Spend the money on something else.  This purse is not good for daily use.
