Anna Sui x Coach: Opposites Attract


I’ve sworn off snarkiness in place of professionalism, but can I get a huge HALLELUJAH?! Don’t judge by the name: it’s called the Duffle Project (out of the New Legacy collection), but this collaboration has produced what are possibly the coolest bags ever from Coach!

Anna Sui, the eternal badass and wildly chic designer has infused her rock ‘n’ roll aesthetic into Coach’s iconic Duffle Sac. Heaps of whipstitching and whimsy, plentiful tassels, and Art Nouveau appliquéd dragonflies plus Coach’s signature vegetable-tanned, hand-burnished leather equals a match made in effortless-style heaven.

Each bag is numbered and features solid-brass hardware, signature hangtags, and a removable interior logo wristlet, so yours will feel extra-special. If your mother grew up in the seventies, when Ali McGraw was at her height and bohemian whimsy was in original effect, hide this bag! In a rush of nostalgia, she’s sure to be all over your new Duffle sac.

The black Dragonfly Duffleicon goes for $798 and the Fleur de Lisicon is $1,000 (priced very well for numbered, collectible bags), so snap one up and don’t pack your paisley maxis away just yet! Available at Coach.
