Coach has long captured the modern chic slice of the fashion market with its constantly up-to-date looks and luxe designs. This Spring 2014, Coach continues its momentum as a global lifestyle brand, introducing a core colour palette of vachetta, black and rich mahogany with pops of seasonal colors for an ultrachic look.
Among the season highlight to look out for this 2014:
KEY HANDBAG STYLES
The high impact Bonded Tote is introduced this spring in ultrachic leather that takes the tote to a new level of sophistication. Notable styles include an elevated embossed python, a rich cognac embossed crocodile and a luxurious embossed lizard. This sleek silhouette is available in two versatile sizes, with the smaller, Mini North/South Tote enhanced with the adjustable second strap to reemphasize its functionality.
Building upon the distinguished silhouettes offered in the collection, the Sadie returns this spring in bold looks that reinforce the current black and white trend. Offered in the Graphic Print Sadie and the Two-Tone Python Sadie, this bag is as fashionable as it is functional.
Key styles include the easy-to-wear Convertible Shoulder Bag, a silhouette that effortlessly transforms into a pouch, for a bag with versatile function that is ideal for the multi-tasking woman. The supple pebbled leather will become even more luxuriously soft over time to complement its beautiful drape.
Another key silhouette is the easy and sophisticated Soft Satchel. Available in three different sizes and a rich range of seasonally appropriate colors and textures, the bag has a clean, understated aesthetic that beautifully complements a fashionable wardrobe.
Key new offerings are rounded out with the Sling Bag and XL Sling Bag. Both versions of this stylish everyday silhouette are crafted in luxuriously soft, supple leather with a rich grain. The Pinnacle version of the XL Sling Bag comes in an exceptionally refined embossed crocodile leather used exclusively for this design. The result is an oversized crossbody with a clean look and a very chic attitude.
New go-to flats are introduced this season for the warmer weather. The Melynda is adorned with strappy leather across the toe for added detail and an adjustable ankle strap for added comfort. While the dressier Wilma, is a pointed-toe dress flat that’s right on trend with an oversized signature metal bow and metal heel. Our classic smoking slipper silhouette, returns this spring with the Catrin in bursts of colorful exotics, making it a must-have for the season. It is further updated with the Utopia, complete with playful lobster embroidery detail for an ode to summer.
This season’s sought-after mid-height block heel is available in various silhouettes for all occasions. The printed snake Isla with hardware detailing and the Bohemian Pexton with contrast stitching on the toe both feature a stacked mid-block heel. The Ryer, an ankle bootie with woven detail also features the on-trend heel.
A classic silhouette like the new Chambers, with its on-trend kitten heel and the Camille, with a slightly higher mid-heel both with mixed-material blocking are designs that can be dressed up or down. The Harlee, a high-heeled, pointed-toe pump, is a wardrobe staple that has been updated for spring in exotic materials.
The Bonnie Coat Bonded Leather makes an impact this spring with a Bonnie Cashin inspired silhouette featuring two layers of bonded lambskin to provide a luxurious double face construction. The collarless version of the moto jacket has extra attitude this season with the addition of bombe padding on the shoulders and sleeves making the striking white leather Liberty Moto Jacket the perfect addition to every woman’s wardrobe.
The classic Peacoat gets an update this season with the stunning Mini Leather Peacoat, a new cropped shape and ¾ length sleeves makes this a must-have for spring. The classic Trench is updated with the Combo Slim Trench which debuts a new slimmer silhouette with elevated leather blocking detail. The Summer Trench is further refined with lightweight cotton fabric and short sleeve detail, which allows for both short and long sleeves to be worn underneath. This jacket is perfect for layering and beautifully rounds out the collection.
This season’s collection is all about strong graphics and a sporty attitude. Drawing inspiration from abstract paintings and textured surfaces, the importance of color play is the highlight of the bar stripe theme yet the pieces are perfectly refined for a sophisticated look. This impactful design is exemplified with the Mixed Material Bar Stripe Tote, the pieced together black leather mixed with soft canvas makes for a strikingly chic combination. Available in wearable silhouettes like the Day Tote and Shopper these bags are as functional as they are fashionable. Highlights include the understated Bar Stripe Tote in navy and black, and for a bolder look the Mixed Bar Stripe Tote is available in doe and dark olive with a pop of mustard. The bar stripe theme is also available throughout the collection with the Placed Bar Striped Sweater and Bar Stripe Light Weight Scarf and in novelty items such as the Bar Stripe Portfolios and the Bar Stripe Umbrellas.
The luxury layer of the collection is updated this season with leather bonded to suede and extra-premium belting-leather strap details. Made with leather from Italy, these new straps are showcased on the refined Banker’s Brief—an updated silhouette with iconic Coach style. The belting strap details are also mirrored in the beautifully paired back silhouette of the Craftman’s Tote. The Postman’s Bag with an adjustable strap for added comfort is a unique silhouette with a striking brass dog leash and suede lining.
This spring, a collection is reintroduced with a more modern, sophisticated aesthetic, and a decidedly urban edge. Fresh silhouettes feature striking new design details such as bigger, more masculine hardware and exposed zippers. They showcase Coach’s renowned craftsmanship with a great look for the style-conscious. Sporty styles like the popular Foldover Tote and the new Urban Backpack in updated leather textures offer great style and superb function. Accessories are refreshed with sophisticated new details and textures, including colorblocking on the Card Case and exotic leathers on the Lizard Zip Around Wallet.
Playing off of a black and fawn color palette this collection captures the spirit of the details found on the baseball and glove. The story continues to broaden this season with the new black and white Leather Baseball Jacket and the Leather Baseball Cap. The intricate details intertwine throughout the pieces which is especially apparentwith archival baseball tag on the Bleecker Baseball Wallets.
