Chicago understands tradition. You still tell people to ?meet you under the clock? at the long-gone Marshall Field?s, and, if anyone thinks it?s a waste of food coloring to dye an entire river green--well, what kind of a spoilsport would say that? An attachment to history is one reason why the iconic leather brand Coach is a staple of many a Chicagoan?s closet.
It?s also what will attract you to Coach?s nostalgic new collection, aptly named Legacy. Dozens of styles--including bags, shoes, accessories and even apparel--are all centered around a return to exceptional detailing (like the raw edges on hand-painted tassels) and the vivid colors for which Coach is known.
Take the Legacy Duffle, for example. The bucket-style bag (made famous by the brand in the 1970s) already comes in a spectrum of 18 hues. But thanks to nine additional Duffle Kits (a customizable strap, tag and tassel combo), you can mix and match color combinations to create a style all your own. Turn a standard brown sac up a notch with, say, a hot pink strap and tassel.
One of those cherished Chicago winters is on the way, and you?re secretly excited to brave a blizzard or two. What better way to face the drabbest season than with a bold new bag?
