Event Post: Coach Fall/Winter 2011 & 70th Anniversary Press Preview

Last Thursday, Stylicious Fashionista hopped on over to Coach KLCC for the Fall/Winter 2011 and 70th Anniversary Collection Press Preview

The Kristin collection for Fall/Winter 2011. This season, the Kristin collection is a play with textures, with a mix of patent, smooth, suede and exotic embossed leathers. My favourite? The new Haircalf Carryall made of cheetah-printed Italian haircalf in ombre effect. Here’s a closer look below:

Up next, the Fall 2011 Poppy Collection

This table features the new Poppy Collection. The Poppy girl (which appealed to the younger market) is all grown up for Fall. We still see the sequinned bags that is characteristic of this collection. However, the day bags are less funky – the graffiti bags have been replaced with a more minimalist look. The plain bags on the right are members of the Poppy Pushlock Satchel family.

The 70th Anniversary Exclusives – In other words, Limited Editions

Coach celebrates its 70th Anniversary in October, which is when these bags will be available in stores. Members of the media got a preview of this collection. For their 70th Anniversary, we have the Quilted Nylon Lindsey (the Red and black bags on top). Inspired by skiwear from the 70s, it is super duper lightweight (and will retail at approximately RM2,000++)! The chevron-quilted bag (chevron refers to the V shaped pattern) and is available in plum, orange, mahogany, and grey. Although made of nylon, it feels super silky (think less nylon and more nylon-silk similar in feel to the Tod’s Pashmy) and looks super luxe due to the chevron quilting.

Here’s a close-up look at the chevron quilting as well as the 70th Anniversary embossed hangtag (the words are on the back of the Coach’s signature leather hangtag)

And below, is a close-up view of the Madison Dowel Satchel (priced at approximately RM 6,000 ++), with the frame top revived from Coach’s archive from 20 years back. I love this version in metallic leather, but a little on the heavy side, as with all framed bags. All 70th Anniversary bags also come with the 70th Anniversary “jumble logo” as shown below.

And now a closeup of the same Madison Dowel Satchel but in croc-embossed leather

There’s something for the Men too!

Here are the bags from the 70th Anniversary Men’s collection:

On the Left, the Reversible totes and on the right the Crosby collection

The Reversible totes are mostly made of leather and suede on one side, and fabric or quilted nylon on the other, and some of striped Italian wool that reverses into canvas. Although from the men’s collection, I am told that ladies love to buy this and use it as their document bags.

Although this is a men’s SLG, I would definitely buy this! Said to be priced at approximately RM600++

And lastly, the luggage collection.

At the end of the event, we all were given 70th Anniversary Cake Pops.
