When Stuart Vevers transformed a portion of NYC’s iconic High Line for the Coach Spring 2016 show, I knew we were in for something special. Everything from the set to the music to the setting gave us a very floral infused 70s vibe and this translated into every item walking the runway.
Stuart showed prints on prints for much of the collection, and while I don’t usually opt for that combination for my personal wardrobe, I fell in love with the tiny floral prints on bags. I found the Quality Coach Saddle 23 Replica Bag in printed haircalf and knew this was the bag my spring wardrobe needs. Many floral prints are a bit too much for my liking, with light pastel colors and overly-obvious florals, but the flowers on this bag are compact and work so beautifully with the black background.
The Top end bag reimagines Coach’s iconic 1972 Pouch in haircalf with the prairie floral print atop. Dimensions are just right for everyday use, 9″ x 7.75″ x 3.45″ and the strap adjusts with the ability to wear short, long, or crossbody with five-hole adjustments. This bag shows what the new Coach era is all about, edginess mixed with tradition, and I love it.
