Introducing: Coach Chelsea Handbag Collection
tBFâ€™er BoysrSmelly beat me to the punch over in the forum, again! lol. Check out the new Chelsea Handbag collection to hit store shelves over at Coach. There are a few highs and a few lows but all and all I am pretty impressed with this new addition. Without a doubt its more appealing than Coachâ€™s recently introduced (well revamped) Patchwork Line.
The new Chelsea Collection features soft shapes in some of Coachâ€™s most popular silhouettes like the sling pack, mini shoulder flap, double strap satchel, hobos baby bag and tote. Also this newbie features identifiable features such as the brass or silver turn-lock closures, braided or grommet straps, patchwork and/or exotic leathers. Thatâ€™s right, this collection comes in chocolate or mineral python-print leather! OMG the baby blue mineral beauty has looks to
kill die for.
Pictured above are a few of the bags from the new collection. Below I looked at each one in more detailâ€¦
- Hands down the gem of the new collection is the mineral robins egg blue Python Satchel. This precious jewel is dressed in a python-embossed leather on the structured satchel body. The mouth of the bag is kept shut with the turn-lock closure which opens to show off the fabric lining, single zip pocket, multi-function pockets, ring to clip an accessory or keyfob. Perfect bag for those semi-dressy, going to hang out with the girls occasion, check it out. Measures 13â€? (L) x 7.5â€? (H) x 4.5â€? (W) Price: $998
- Next up is the bohemian-inspired Patchwork Large Hobo. Dressed in a pattern collage of neutral to gold leather and light to dark brown suede pattern fabric on the slouchy hobo shape. This bag also features a turn-lock closure, interior zip pocket, multi-functional pocket, and a ring clip for a keyfob. Not my favorite of the newbies, the criss-cross stitching pattern which merges the patterns together reminds me of bags produced in the 80′s. Click here to view more details. Measures 11â€? (L) x 11.5â€? (H) x 5â€? (W) Price: $458
- Yes again with the optic signature. Itâ€™s back for yet another season and this time itâ€™s featured in the Chelsea collection. The bag pictured above is the boxy shaped Optic Signature Tote in either the denim or camel colored optic print with silver hardware and a matching braided shoulder strap. I love this style. Itâ€™s perfect for almost any occasion â€“ from school to work and everything in between. Check out the other bags with the optic print at coach.com. Measures 11â€? (L) x 12â€? (H) x 5â€? (W) Price: $428
- Coach is introducing not only the new Chelsea handbag line, but a completely new hobo style as well â€“ the saddlebag looking Abbey Flap Hobo. The bold features of this bag which make it look distinctly different than all the others include the leather whipstitch lacing through the brass eyes, mini tassels, studded detailing sprinkled all over the shoulder strap, a back pocket with magnetic snap closure and the gigantic flap which pops open to reveal the inside zip pocket, multi-function pocket, and a ring to clip a key fob. This new unique style is available in a few other styles, check â€˜em out. Measures 15.5â€? (L) x 14â€? (H) x 5â€? (W) Price: $798
- And finally, *drum roll* it’s the Chelsea Hobo. This bag isnâ€™t flashy or decorated with a bunch of overpopulated studded clutter, which is just how I like it. Truly this bag doesnâ€™t need anything more then what going on â€“ Dressed in the rich mineral baby robins egg blue on the timeless forever stylish retro-inspired body. Discover is here. Measures 11â€? (L) x 11â€? (H) x 4â€? (W) Price: $398
