When Stuart Vevers changed a part of NYC’s iconic High Line for its Coach Spring 2016 series, I knew we were in for something special. Everything in the set to the audio to the setting gave us a very flowery infused 70s vibe and this translated into each item walking the runway.
Stuart revealed prints prints for a lot of the collection, and while I don’t usually opt for that mix for my personal wardrobe, I fell in love with the small floral prints on bags. I discovered the Coach bag Saddle 23 Bag in printed haircalf and knew this was the bag my spring wardrobe requirements. Many floral prints are a bit too much for my liking, with light pastel colors and overly-obvious florals, but the flowers on this bag are streamlined and work so beautifully with the black backdrop.
The bag reimagines Coach’s legendary 1972 Pouch in haircalf using the prairie floral print atop. Dimensions are right for everyday usage, 9″ x 7.75″ x 3.45″ and the strap adjusts with the capability to wear short, long, or crossbody using five-hole alterations.
This bag shows exactly what the new Coach age is about, edginess mixed with tradition, and I really like it. Purchase via Coach for $895.
