Coach | View!
Coach.com: The 65th anniversary of Coach presents a wonderful opportunity to look back at decades of design – and forward to what’s next. There’s a synergy between past and present that’s best exemplified in the distinctive way Coach continually evolves its iconic elements. Yet the meticulous craftsmanship and attention to detail never waver. The quality and integrity of design are still paramount. Since enduring design is one of Coach’s greatest legacies, it’s no surprise to find features familiar from generations past incorporated into one of its newest collections, Coach Legacy.
After browsing through and examining the entire collection pointing out every feature I liked and disliked, I have come to the conclusion that overall I am impressed, this time (this time Coach). I must say though, the only feature that I truly hate on most of the bags (well, inside) is the super ugly Legacy Stripe lining that’s signature to this Limited Edition collection.
Coach | Legacy Shoulder Bag | $398
Maybe it’s just me, but the turnlock (on this bag in particular) reminds me of the hardware used on Kenneth Cole handbags. This Coach Legacy leather shoulder bag retails for $398 and the very similar Kenneth Cole Jet Stream hobo retails for $498. I would save the hundred and go for the coach. Available in the colors white, whisky, rose or black with shiny brass hardware. Measurements of this bag are 11.5″ length x 8″ height x 3″ width.
Coach | Legacy Mandy Courier Bag | $798
Not sure if I would recommend this bag to any of my friends, even if they are Coach Fans. $800 for a plum colored suede and metallic leather bag decorated with the signature Coach doglease detailing and turnlock closure. Somebody please explain to me what I am not seeing, because Imo, there is nothing else spectacular about this bag.
Coach | Legacy Signature Suede Slim Flap Bag | $448
Ehh, This bag is not my cup of tea. Fringe has never been my favorite add-on and is definitely an addition to a bag that I stay away from – I would be too tempted to get the scissors out.
Coach | Legacy Zebra Framed French Purse | $258
Nothing is cuter in this collection then the mini accessories, such as the wallets and wristlets. Pictured above is my favorite’s accessory from the new collection, the Legacy framed purse in zebra print (fall 2006 trend).
Coach | Legacy Leather Wristlet | $98
Another favorite from the Limited Edition bunch is this leather wristlet available in rose, white, whisky or black with the signature coach brass turnlock hardware. Also the under $100 price tag makes it look so much better.
Like most limited edition collections for other designer brands, this collection retails for slightly more than the average bag from this label. Price range for the new Coach Legacy Collection is roughly $158 to $798 for handbags, $28 to $248 for accessories, and $58 to $1598 for wearables.
