Coach’s First Collection From Stuart Vevers is Now Available Online–What Do You Think?

Other Brands

Coach Dakotah Fringe Bag

Coach is in the middle of a major reinvention, and now the first full collection from creative director Stuart Vevers has arrived for purchase. The line is inspired by the American West and traditional workwear, and the bags have a slightly rough-around-the-edges feel that will be new to many of the brand’s longtime fans. Naturally, the collection includes a bunch of brand new handbags.

The two most notable additions to the Coach handbag lineup are the Rhyder and Dakotah lines. The Rhyder is a pieced-together satchel that comes in a variety of sizes, and although it’s received the lion’s share of Coach’s marketing push, the bag often feels overworked and over-designed. The Dakotah, on the other hand, is the star of the show; it feels natural and uncomplicated, even when decorated with long fringe, and its leather is thick and expensive-feeling in person.

It’s important that these bags feel expensive, because Coach is also making a push to increase its prices and expand its offerings into a full-scale premium-contemporary lifestyle brand. The best argument in favor of that move is the brand’s lush outerwear; although it’s not our main concern, I’ve included a couple of pieces of it alongside a selection of the fall bags below. It’s too good to skip entirely, even if it’s not a bag.

Marc Jacobs Continues His Handbag Push with Military Vibes for Spring 2015

Other Brands

Marc Jacobs Spring 2015 Handbags 10

Marc Jacobs is not a man of opaque themes; he’s preternaturally talented when it comes to a lot of things, and among them is letting his spectators, fans and clients know what he’s thinking during his seasonal shows. For Spring 2015, Jacobs clearly had his mind on the military, and the show contained the dusty olives and khakis that go right along with that, down to the bags.

Since leaving Louis Vuitton, Jacobs has put a clear emphasis on revitalizing his once-dominant accessories business, and he’s released several strong bags in aid of those efforts. The familiar one that popped up in this collection was a theme and variations on the Trouble Bag, a simple flap shoulder bag with a signature disc closure. The collection also included a number of oversized silk-satin knapsacks and totes in the style of traditional military bags, and although those supported the theme, they’re unlikely to be big sellers. Check out the full collection below.

Prada Vitello Lux Flap and Double Flap Tote Bag Reference Guide

Other Brands

Introducing the Prada Vitello Lux Flap Tote bags from Prada’s Fall / Winter 2014 collection. The new style appears in two versions, one with a large front flap and two double flaps on opposite sides. The interior on both styles remains the same with a single divider and small interior flap. The interesting part about this bag is that the front of the bag does not have identifying markers of a typical Prada as the logo plate is located on the back of the bag. The front turnlocks do not include the signature brand logo, which is an odd way to position their current season’s newest style.

The double flap tote version is more desirable since the logo ‘Prada Milano’ is featured prominently on the back flap. The bag features a shoulder strap and a single top handle that is fastened on metal hardware making it extremely durable for everyday wear. Check-out the new styles featured in the Prada Fall / Winter 2014 ad campaign.
