Style & Sophistication: Confessions of a Handbag Addict

My name is Rebecca Low and I am a designer handbag addict. I don't consider myself a fashionista by any means. You can usually find me in a cute t-shirt and jeans but when it comes to handbags, it's strictly designer, baby, and Coach is one of my go-to brands.

My 7 Coach handbags and 3 wallets make up almost half of my handbag collection. First and foremost, I love that Coach is style. Every season, Coach comes out with handbags at the cutting edge of the season's trends. Coach handbags are trendy yet always sophisticated. I personally like their more classic styles that I can reuse year after year. I also prefer Coach's style to other popular designers, like Louis Vuitton, because I think it conveys a younger look. The quality of Coach handbags are also top notch. They are made with durable leather and canvas. Each stitch perfectly complementing the overall style of the bag. All of my handbags are everyday bags and, as much as I love them, they go through a lot of abuse. Even the bags I've had for years are still going strong! Lastly, I love the price of Coach. Most of the handbags I purchase from Coach are between $250-$400 each so buying a few of them every year doesn't break the bank. Compare that with $600-$1000 for Gucci, Prada, and other Rodeo Drive labels.

Coach isn't only for women either. Many people don't know that Coach also makes leather good for men. You don't often see them in the department stores but if you go to a Coach store, you can find them. I recently converted my husband to Coach. He has a men's wallet and reversible belt that he loves! He even recommended Coach wallets to a friend of his.

In addition to their handbags and wallets, I've recently started venturing out to some of the other products Coach makes. I have Coach sandals, sneakers, sunglasses, umbrella, and earrings now too. All of items are the same high quality that I would expect from Coach.

Coach will remain a huge staple in my closet for many years to come!

Great review. I used to really like Coach, but it seems like once their popularity picked up they oversold, and now everywhere you look people have a Coach keychain, minibag, shoes, purse, etc. I like their patterns but I really wish they'd sort of regulate how much they produce so it can keep its reputation as being a luxury brand.

I totally know what you mean. It's like you want it to be more affordable than Gucci & Prada but not so affordable that everyone has one!!

   It’s the season of giving, and if you are looking for some gifts for your female friends, Coach Store offers a lot of trinkets that are stylish and are surprisingly not that out-of-reach then one would think.        Recently I visited the newly opened store at the Westfield Mall in Arcadia looking for some present ideas, I need to get presents for my sons' teachers, so I wasn't looking for anything fancy or expensive.  With a 25% off …

About this topic

Wiki

Coach, Inc. (NYSE: COH) is an American leather goods company known for ladies' handbags, as well as items such as luggage, briefcases, wallets and other accessories (belts, shoes, scarves, umbrellas, sunglasses, key chains, etc.). Coach also offers watches and footwear.

History
Coach began as a family-owned business in a loft in Manhattan, New York in 1941 with American designer Bonnie Cashin. In 1960, Miles and Lillian Cahn, owners of a wholesale handbag manufacturing business, asked Cashin to become designer of a proposed retail collection. As Cashin was initially too busy with other design contracts, she did not become their designer until 1962.

In developing accessories for her style of contemporary dress, Cashin dramatically changed handbags with designs akin to modern sculpture, dyed in candy colors of pink, orange, yellow and blue, and lined with linens designed by textile designer Dorothy Liebes. With a greater variety of shapes, colors and textures in her "Cashin-Carry" designs, many featured wide openings or exterior coin purses and pockets. Coach Incorporated is now considered to be a very "fashion-forward" brand and is commonly sold and purchased throughout the country.

Cashin designed matching shoes, pens, key fobs and eyewear and added hardware to her clothes and accessories alike, particularly the silver toggle that became the Coach hallmark, declaring that she had been inspired by a memory of quickly fastening the top on her convertible sports car.
