Recently, Coach announced they would be collaborating with Alabama-based designer Billy Reid on their Capsule collection. Both are recognized for their all-American style and dedication to superior craftsmanship, so it seems this collaboration is only natural. Personally, I am very excited to see this collection. I have always been a fan of Coach, even when many bagistas were getting a little bored with the sea of Coach handbags everywhere they went. Coach is certainly recognizable, but I don’t think that is necessarily a bad thing. After all, Coach has produced some awesome handbags over the years. So I think this collaboration can only add to that awesomeness!
The collection will include a variety of women’s and men’s accessories. Prices range from $250 to $800. However, a $20k crocodile piece was also thrown into the mix. Interestingly, some unique items were also included with this collection such as a leather-trimmed portable bar set. There are even father and son sized baseball gloves, which is fitting considering how it was a baseball glove that inspired Miles Cahn while creating a new way of processing leather for Coach handbags.
