I always ‘um and ah’ about posting press day pictures, I worry that they will come across as lazy posts, but I have been going over some of my pictures from my autumn/winter 2013 showroom visits and I had to share what’s coming up for American label, Coach.
For me, bags are the ultimate designer purchase, granted some do cost a couple of hundred pounds but each and every one, especially if they are made of leather and are classic in their design, make great investments – not just in financial terms but also for your wardrobe.
Just this weekend I reorganised the mountain of bags I own, each in their own dust bag, each padded to keep their shape, and each looking nearly as good as the day I bought or was given it. I generally stick to classic shapes, so the current ‘It’ bag isn’t for me, but that doesn’t mean just neutral colours my collection is filled with vibrant blues, pinks, and reds, as well as a number of black, tan and even a white one – basically I look at handbags as a great way to jazz up an outfit so collecting all the colours in the rainbow is definitely a goal.
One brand not currently represented in my collection is Coach, which I most certainly need to look into immediately – especially after seeing their impressive autumn/winter 2013 collection.
One of the pieces that really stood out for me at the press day, other than all the tassels, had to be this gorgeous mustard yellow bag, which kind of reminds me of a modern-day take of a Doctors bag. I love everything from the colour to the silver clasps, the large size and the textured leather.
Now I am not sure on the price, but I am going to guess that it is around the £500 mark, sounds a lot but just think how many pieces in your wardrobe this beauty would enhance. It would perfectly go with a little black dress, jeans and a white shirt, or even a floral jumpsuit. I know black might be the preferred choice when it comes to handbags but I really do love a colourful bag.
The rest of the collection was just as lust worthy, filled with vibrant reds, exquisite textured pieces, vibrant prints, and even a hot pink clutch that has also been added to my wishlist.
If you haven’t checked out Coach’s flagship on New Bond Street in London, or on Regent Street – do – this is a brand filled with options from adorable clutches to fashion week super-sized totes and best of all they generally come in every shade of the colour spectrum – so there is always something to suit your mood.
