I want this! Pre-order online starting today (May 19). — I don’t know about you, but I’m curious to see the latest Coach Collection for myself – a variety of limited edition handbags designed by 4 influential fashion bloggers. Coach is pretty clever to have established relationships with these style arbiters early on, especially by gifting them with a variety of bags that usually end up in their posts as well. Each design is more extreme than the other, but the one I’m contemplating (above) was designed by Karla Deras of Karla’s Closet. It’s a tough, black, pebbled leather convertible clutch and, voila, a shoulder bag or cross-body option. Kelly Framel of The Glamourai designed a crocodile embossed lavender hobo, adorable Angeleno Emily Schuman of Cupcakes and Cashmere created a light pink feminine satchel and media muse Krystal Simpson of What is Reality Anyway came up with a fringy, rock-n-roll inspired number. (Do you recognize Krystal from MTV’s “I’m From Rolling Stone”)? It must’ve been really hard for them to keep the big secret, but they’ve dropped plenty of cryptic hints along the way.
The bags hit the sales floor on June 2, but will be available for pre-order from Coach starting today, May 19. Congrats to these bloggers. I have to admit I wish Coach would’ve also included a bag by Geri Hirsch of Because I’m Addicted. (Dear Coach, did I ever mention I once ran an LA designer’s handbag company and also designed a few limited editions of my own as well? Wink, wink, cough, cough). If you end snagging one of these bags, please show me, show me, show me.
