Coach is a brand I’ve not spared a 2nd glance at for a long time. I was not terribly impressed with their latest designs or quality and needless to say, the super marked up prices here. But when the new Coach Kristin Collection landed in my mailbox, I did not only give it a 2nd glance, I went to check out the whole collection online and I found myself impressed.
The Kristin collection is something I can associate with Coach – the clean simple lines and classic designs that was what got me into Coach bags in the first place. I do have one caveat. My interest lies solely in the leather bags which come in one plain colour and gold or silver hardware, and look classic and elegant. The monogram canvas is still sadly getting two thumbs down from me.
Here are some of my favourite designs from the new Coach Kristin collection.
I am partial to hobo bags and the Kristin Leather Hobo (US$298) is a lovely simple design in some great colors. The yellow colour in fact, resembles a Coach hobo I own! The difference is that mine has no pocket on the front and does not come with a separate strap but has a strap that can be converted to a long one to carry the bag cross body. Also comes in a larger size.
