I first discovered Coach on a visit to New York in 2007. I’m always a magpie when it comes to pretty or sparkly things and once it had come to my attention there was no stopping me.
I didn’t purchase a bag immediately, biding my time until I found the right one. In recent years I’ve become a big fan of stylish smaller bags which are particularly handy for running errands or sight-seeing. I also really needed to stop carting so much stuff around with me all day, most of which I just didn’t need. Thankfully Coach always seems to include such styles in each collection.
After much searching (what can I say, I’m a trouper) I found a beautiful brown leather double pocket bag. It’s chic, light and goes with everything. It can be carried as a cross-body or shoulder bag. What’s not to love?! Katy’s black leather Coach Mickie is a similar style.
For me Coach combines modern styling with beautiful materials. It does dressier styles but I tend to prefer its more classic and often more casual designs.
Coach was established in 1941 as a family-run workshop in New York City. It describes itself as going on to, “define ‘accessible luxury’ for a generation” and hopes, “to become the company that defines global modern luxury”. Tell us what Coach bags mean to you in the comments below.
