New suspect in town: Coach coming to the U.K.

Yes, wanted internationally for making shoppers love to hate and hate to love them, American accessories behemoth Coach is coming to the U.K. and France in the next 12 months. Arriving first in France via their Printemps department store, those in the U.K. can look out for a London flagship amongst other locations soon after.

Like many handbag brands, Coach often does best when it keeps its logo small and unobtrusive, like on the Floral Embroidery Audrey Bag above, $498. If even this pearlized Nappa leather is too much for you, there is a lovely classic version in cowhide leather for $398. The brand is definitely best positioned to avoid the Fashion Police when they stick to their classic, ladylike silhouettes and finishes.

    Just had a look at their site, and definitely not keen. It’s a good job the Co-op don’t make accessories or they might get a bit upset at a logo that’s so similar to theirs. (And conversely, I’m glad Coach don’t make cotton shopping bags…)

    I have several Coach bags, and I agree that they do classics best. I am not a fan of the multi colored printed bags that they have out now. I think the solids are much better.
