New offerings from Coach for Spring 2014

When I saw the post on PurseBlog about the new bags at Coach for Spring 2014, I’ve never been more excited. post on Sarah Jessica Parker was the first celebrity to show off her new Borough bag which comes in a range of different contrasting lining, shoulder strap and zipper pull colours.

My favourite? The mini or small sizes of the white Borough with the contrasting zipper pull and shoulder strap bags.

As you can see from the photo of SJP carrying her brand new green Borough, it’s quite a wide bag but not as tall in height. It’s meant to be carried as a handheld bag. The proportions just don’t seem right when it’s so long. Personally, when it comes to tote bags, there’s some leeway with the width of the bag, like the Panarea from Dior, the Louis Vuitton Neverfull or the Michael Kors Jet Set tote.

The totes are meant to be reminiscent and are sometimes used as celebrities’ beach bags. I’m not really sure about the Borough, but with the smaller sizes, the proportions seem to be fine. It’s great to see how the brand is coming along since I’ve always been a been particular about the collections available from Coach. Most of their logo products (which can also be said for a lot of brands) just don’t appeal to me, only because it seems like an obvious way of displaying your penchance for designer items to the rest of the world instead of an appreciation for the style craftsmanship applied to the bag you’re buying. I’m pleasantly surprised though by the lovely ombre painted-effect plaid patterned totes and other top handle bags with contrasting colours for the interior to the outer leather.

This is a change to the design and style of Coach’s usual style and I really like it. Click here to read the article from Purseblog.
