After watching the Coach emails in my mailbox over the past few days, the new Coach Poppy collection has finally been unveiled. I’d been curious about the Coach Poppy Bags – the last time Coach had a Poppy collection they put applique of poppy flowers on the bag – it was quite sweet.
This time, Poppy is the name of the line but I see no poppies. Instead what I see is a riot of colour. The fabric in the top right design appears to be the signature fabric of the Coach Poppy Collection.
The Coach Poppy collection looks to me to be more at home on London’s Carnaby Street than in New York – its got that quirky feel of fashion that I associate with London. Its bright and shiny and young – an image I feel Coach is trying hard to cultivate.
You can view the Coach Poppy Collection at Coach online. I don’t quite know how I feel about this one.
How about you? Hit or Miss?
