It is not just Coach that moved its factory to China, many designer houses have also moved. But those that remain with their “Made in Italy” tags are claiming a little more than they are worth at times. The fact is, many designers have the majority of their bag made in China and then some finishing touches are completed in Italy etc. And this renders a Made in Italy stamp? I think not. Why am I talking about this? It is all about quality of what we are buying, and many times our luxury items are not high quality. This actually is not a start for me to go against Coach purses, but to say that they are not the only ones that have moved their factories to keep up with the demand and costs. Quality matters to me, and at times it is lacking. To be honest, I have not seen a Coach Alligator Bag in person, so I will need your insight on this. Coach has continued to branch out to bring exotic materials to its clients. The Coach Legacy Alligator Pocket Flap is designed with imported alligator and leather trim on the iconic Coach Pocket Flap bag. One thing that I find great about this bag is its functionality; with an inside zip pocket, cell phone pocket, ring to clip keys, and two outside front pockets. I have a major issue with the exotic outside that is then lined in fabric on the inside. I would definitely expect a more luxurious interior for the price, like suede lining. Either way, Coach exotic purses already has fans in Rebecca Romijn, Mandy Moore, and Eva Longoria. This bag costs $7000 through Coach.

Let’s have a debate: Would you ever buy a Coach exotic? Do you look down upon brands that move their companies overseas, like to China?

I have been intrigued by the exotic creations being seen on Coach purses lately. We first had Eva Longoria with a Python Miranda then Rebecca Romijn with an Ostrich Lily. But it is not just their exotics that are catching attention. Coach purses are a fan favorite. In fact, most women start out buying a Coach purse when they break into the designer handbag realm. I know I did. And while my collection has expanded, there are still Coach purses that I see and love. The new line is the Coach Francine line, which is just in time for spring with bright colors on patent leather. Sure there is the obligatory brown and white, but I am intrigued by the eye popping teal and slight shimmer to the metallic. Even better is that a purple will be available April 22nd online. The Patent Leather Francine sports a bold color with a great design, offering a removable strap and an outside pocket with turn lock closure. The shape resembles a bowler bag. This design is great for a hand-held burst of color and flair. The patent leather Francine costs $798 via Coach while the metallic leather costs $898 via Coach. (more…)
