For many years, I ignored Coach’s products because the prevalence of monogram- and logo-printed items was more than I could bear. (I don’t want my fashion choices to be a walking advertisement.) But this season, the brand has created a collection in the muted hues of the autumn sky–misty purples, mauves and taupes.
Coach is by no means an inexpensive brand, but the pieces are well-made and timeless enough to be worn for decades. In addition to the gorgeous pieces above, Coach also sells a Classic line that contains some of the best pieces from their past seasons. I love their Basic Bag cross body satchel ($168) and their Court Bag satchel ($258).
My favorite piece on the page is easily the Chambers Heel. It has a kitten-heel height and a fabulous mix of blush and rose gold. I also love these black crystal encrusted heels for a night out on the town, and these cognac and snakeskin flats are the ultimate spring/summer shoe.
I bought the ocelot iPhone case above and I think this Bleecker Carryall in grey birch will be the perfect birthday present to myself. The color and size make it the ideal warm weather work bag.
I’m loving Coach’s new arrivals, and it’s great to see a heritage brand reviving itself into something new. Hopefully, the reinvention will continue.
