Coach Looked To The Archives To Reimagine One Of Its All Time Classics

Introducing this year's It-bag

Look to the wardrobes of some of the world’s most fashionable players – Jennifer Lopez, Selena Gomez and Yara Shahidi – and you’ll notice they all look to one fashion house for their everyday wear. Coach, an icon of modern luxury, has built a reputation on quality craftsmanship that’s synonymous with effortless and fashion-forward pieces, with their quintessential New York edge. 

Some of the brand’s iconic styles are just too good to be left in the archives, which is exactly why Coach turned to the 90s for its latest innovation. It’s sure to be crowned bag of the season. 

Enter: The Willis 18.

Part of the Coach Originals, a collection of archival-inspired bags that celebrates the legacy and authentic New York heritage of the brand, the new top handle creation has been reimagined for the modern woman. A silhouette first introduced in the 1990s, the design is a structured everyday bag that features the same dowel frame that made the original such a favourite. The compact 18 is also crafted in Coach’s signature canvas with refined leather and can be worn both as a crossbody or in your hand. 

Basically, everything you’ve been looking for. The new style is available in-store and online now.
