Coach Signature Stripe Patchwork Bag Collection
Once again, here’s another newly added member to Coach’s famous family of patchwork creations. The new Signature Stripe Patchwork collection for the spring has just recently made its debut online and in stores. This season’s collaged handbags feature pieced together multi-colored and multi-textured patches with none other than Coach’s signature logo. In this line, shades of pink, purple, white and blue are combined with metallics and one of Coach’s older signature styles called Khaki Brown. The variety of materials seen include Nappa leather, suede, signature jacquard fabric, crinkle patent leather and metallic cowhide. Although these traits are nothing new, basically another jazzed up version with multi-everything and a huge emphasis on the Coach brand is pretty evident. The Signature Stripe collection includes a few bags, a swingpack, and some accessories such as wristlets, wallets and a cosmetic pouch. Shown above is the tote.
Back when Coach came out with what I believe was called the Hamptons Patchwork collection, I had purchased a hobo. It was great for that spring and summer as its variety of bright colors and patterns were appropriate for the season. Though, I never used the purse again and I should have known better that its trendiness would sooner than later cause my investment to be wasted. The new collection is somewhat appealing but I couldn’t see myself wearing one of the bags after they retire. However, I think a small item such as a wristlet or cosmetic pouch would be an adorable addition to any accessory collection and could be used over again. The prices for this collection by Coach range from $48 to $398.
