Coveting Coach

7 Nov

Like many women, I fell out of love with Coach during the 70-year-old brand’s logo-maniacal days in the early aughts. But the American accessories powerhouse has recently returned to its classically fabulous roots thanks to new Creative Director (and Bottega Veneta and Mulberry alum) Stuart Ververs.

Here are five of my faves.

5. The Large Clutchable in Pebbled Leather, $458

Small enough to pair smartly with an LBD, yet large enough to protect your iPad, this burgundy clutch is minimalism at its best.


4. Small Turnlock Plaque Bracelet, $128

This simple stunner takes a nod from the ubiquitous Hermes wrap bracelet, then kicks it up about ten gilded notches.


3. Mini Tanner In Saffiano Leather, $258

This affordable crossbody is the perfect solution for those of us with I-spent $500-on-a-mini-Pashli-and-then-they-ended-up-at-Target angst. (And, yes, I am speaking from personal experience. *grumble*)


2. Box Chain Cuff, $228

The box chain weave of this substantial cuff adds interest while keeping it light and airy. Slip it on over a sweater sleeve, or bejewel a bare arm before a night out.


1. The Large Borough Bag In Polished Calfskin, $898

The luxe leather. The gloriously minimal hardware. And who knew a seam could be so sexy? When it comes to a beautiful carry-all, it doesn’t get much better than this.

    I also loved Coach at one time.. and do like their newer designs, however I still can’t get beyond the fact that I’m carrying a $900 Coach bag while some young trashy chick is also carrying the same brand, with enormous C’s all over it in khaki with fluorescent flowers, and looks like Snooki. And for that reason alone (call it superficial and pretentious) I will not buy Coach again.. there are just so many other great options, why be associated with that?
