Coach Is Changing Its Name & People Are Not Happy About It
This Coach x Selena Gomez Bag Is The Only Thing We Want This Holiday Season
The holidays are just around the corner, so it's about time you start compiling your wish list. While it may be a stretch to ask mom and dad for the iPhone X (just peep that $1,000 price tag), this beautiful bag is a much more reasonable choice! Not only that, but it will earn you some major style points, too. In fact, it's destined to be on the arm of every fashion girl this season. The stunning option is part of Selena Gomez' limited edition collaboration with Coach, which officially launched in September. Deemed the Selena Grace, the bag features a sleek leather exterior and comes in three amazing colors: bright red, black cherry, and a creamy off-white. It also includes double handles to suit any look, whether you prefer to tote it under your arm or let it hang for a longer silhouette. And the inside is just as impressive. Open the bag and you'll find a gorgeous fabric lining, as well as a variety of multifunction pockets perfect for storing all your beauty essentials and beyond. Selena Grace Bag in Mixed Leather ($395) As for the special Selena-approved touches? The item's hangtag features the star's signature and her empowering messages engraved in various locations on the bag. On the base, “Love yourself first” is written in Selena's own handwriting, while the phrase "To be you is to be strong" can be found on a patch inside the bag. Selenators, rejoice! Not only is it a super unique choice, but it's the perfect way to spice up your wardrobe this fall. When cold weather's got you down, try the bright cherry version for a pop of color. Just follow Selena's example and pair it with a muted color palette to really turn heads. We're obsessed with her effortless look, which features some of this season's other hot trends, including cropped flared jeans, sock booties, and an oversized knit. She tops off the outfit with some chic hoops (a must-have in every woman's repertoire) chooses to wear the amazing bag with a long strap to compliment her casual vibe. [Photo: Splash] And the chic options don't stop there. Turns out, you can add even more Selena x Coach accessories to your closet. Of course, you'll need one of these sleek ID cases in the color of your choice to hold all your credit cards. And when you want to swap out the Selena Grace bag for a smaller option that's perfect for a bar-hopping kind of night, one of these sweet little wristlets will do just the trick. So let's hope our friends or loved ones are feeling a little extra generous this holiday season! We're pretty sure you don't need any more convincing to lust after the Selena Grace bag. But just in case, we think the singer herself describes it best: “It’s totally versatile, perfect to wear day-to-night, and it goes with everything."Amen.

Coach Is Buying Stuart Weitzman As Part Of Its “Brand Transformation”
In today's news we didn't see coming, representatives for Coach announced that the brand is acquiring Stuart Weitzman. This marks Coach's first acquisition, but given Stuart Weitzman's recent popularity with celebs like Jennifer Lawrence, Olivia Palermo, Naya Rivera and more it seems very smart. Of the acquisition, Coach's CEO Victor Luis says it's all part of Coach's brand transformation. You'll note the look (and price point) of Coach bag, shoes and clothing has been markedly different under the creative direction of Stuart Vevers; Coach is now hoping to leverage Stuart Weitzman's expertise in fashion and fit to further grow their brand. On the flip side, Coach will be using their international cache to help grow the Stuart Weitzman brand on a global scale. "We look forward to advancing Stuart Weitzman's global development, especially by leveraging Coach’s international infrastructure and expertise in handbags and accessories," Luis says. So what happens when two accessory powerhouses join forces? Does one outshine the other? Does everyone benefit? Only time will tell.

Stuart Vevers Debut Collection For Coach Is The Stuff Fashion Dreams Are Made Of
I have to come clean--I've been sitting on something really good for months now. Back in February, I had the opportunity to preview Stuart Vevers' first official collection for Coach and when I tell you it was stunning, I am not exaggerating. I still have the freakin' photos on my phone for goodness sake! I didn't go on and on about it back then because the collection wouldn't be available to shop for at least another 6 months, but I'm sharing now. Why? Because Coach's Fall 2014 collection just launched online and trust me, you're going to want to splurge. Unlike Coach in years past, Vevers debut collection is the perfect fusion of downtown attitude and classic American sportswear. There are timeless pieces like chunky sweaters, wool skirts and leather jackets, but all done with some envelope-pushing edge to them. Enough of my rambling. One look at the collection and you'll understand why I'm so impressed. Click through the slideshow to shop my 6 favorite pieces.

Already Sick Of Summer? Shop Coach’s Fall 2014 Collection 2 Months Early At Colette
When I checked the forecast and saw that it's supposed to hit 90 degrees tomorrow in NYC, I thought to myself, "Okay, that's enough summer." Of course, I'm not quite ready for snow and cold yet, but yikes--90 aint no joke! Secretly looking forward to fall, too? Well then this should make you happy--you can shop the yet-to-be-released Coach fall 2014 right now at Colette. Now this is big for two reasons. First, the collection won't be available anywhere else for another two months. That means you'll literally be amongst the first to own it if you act fast. Second, this is the brand's very first collection under the creative direction of Stuart Vevers, who replaced longtime designer Reed Krakoff in June 2013. Now before you go expecting the same ol' Coach you've been used to over the years, not so fast. Vevers definitely has his own style and you'll see that reflected in the new Coach aesthetic. The fall 2014 collection is edgier, more fashion-forward and yes, more expensive. Click through the slideshow to get your first look.

Here’s Your Excuse To Get A New Bag Today: Coach Is Raising Their Prices
Coach warned us that they would be raising their bag prices over the next year, and now they're finally holding to their word. The brand has faced steep competition from the Tory Burches, Kate Spades and Michael Kors of the world, so this move is an attempt to set themselves apart from this crew. Coach will also be scaling down on its offerings of over 100 styles of their popular bags. The new items will range from $600 at the low end to about $5,000. While this is still under Louis Vuitton's outrageous prices, it surpasses Coach's usual price tags. But why now? Why are they doing this to us?! While this project has been in the works for a while, the overwhelming sales of the Weekend Borough Bag ($1,200) may have given the brand the confidence to move forward with it. The changes are expected to be seen by the fall, so it is time to kiss the Coach we knew goodbye and grab that handbag you've been eyeing now, because it's going to be more expensive come holiday season.

Every Shoe You Need (And Want) For Spring Is Right This Way #YoureWelcome
Coach is pretty much iconic for their timeless leather handbags--heck, that's why we first fell in love with the brand. But we have to tell you, Coach's shoe game should not be overlooked. We've been following their footwear options for years now and it just keeps getting better and better. We'd even argue that this spring's sandals, heels and flats are Coach's best yet. But why take our word for it when you can see the shoes and judge for yourself? We teamed up with three of our fave style bloggers to show off a few of our fave styles from the new Coach catalog. Stephanie Liu of Honey & Silk took on Coach's Lexey Heels ($198), Sazan Barzani wore the Coach Pexton Sandals ($248), Dani Roxanne of Creative Collective made us fall in love with the Coach Wooster Flats ($188) and SHEfinds' very own editorial Director Jeanine Edwards modeled the Coach Nillie Sandals ($278).

You Can Thank Coach For The Flats You’ll Be Obsessed With This Spring
Our spring shoe preview simply wouldn't be complete without Dani Roxanne, the mastermind behind Creative Collective, showing off these amazing Coach Wooster Flats ($188). Let's face it: you can't wear heels and sandals all the time. And for those days when you're in between pedis, these pointed-toe flats will be your go-to. Thankfully, Dani flawlessly shows us how to take them from the end of a chilly winter into spring. For her first look—best-suited for cooler temps—Dani paired a chunky sweater, corduroy skinny jeans and a cheetah-print scarf with the flats. When the weather is up and down, Dani swears by dressing in layers and versatile leather shoes like these flats to easily transition from warmer days to cooler nights. Once it's warm, though, the Wooster flats are perfectly suited for staying comfy yet cute in dressier outfits. The cut-outs mean your feet won't overheat and they're easy to style with dresses, skirts and rompers. Dani paired them with a breezy floral-print mini sundress and a classic jean jacket.

It Only Took One Look For Us To Fall In Love With These Strappy Coach Sandals
We've already seen two style bloggers rock stunning sandals from the Coach spring footwear collection, but now it's my turn. How could I resist?! Truth be told, I pretty much love every shoe they have this season, but I decided these Coach Nillie Sandals ($278) were my best bet. I love heels in theory, but I only really wear flats so I styled them for an everyday look and for a more dressy occasion. We dress fairly casually here at the SHEfinds office, so flat sandals are my go-to when the weather is warm enough. I can't live without denim--skinnies in the winter, cutoffs in the spring and summer--but I try to dress it up with a nice top, usually something lace like this one by Joie. And the vest because, well, a vest is never really a bad idea. For something a little fancier, I loved the idea of pairing a really special dress with these strappy flat sandals. I'm totally banking this outfit for a summer garden or rooftop party--I could stand for hours in these shoes without sore soles.

Yes, they're that sandal every girl is going to want because they work for both casual looks and dressier ensembles, too. Need proof? Just check out how Sazan dressed them up with a bold, knee-length printed dress and a floppy sun hat. "If I had to sum up my style in one word, that would be vibrant. Depending on my mood, I like to incorporate unique prints and bright colors--regardless of the occasion--into my wardrobe." For a more everyday look, Sazan paired the versatile sandals with a yellow tank, white skinny jeans and a statement necklace. "I'm a lucky gal getting to live in a sunny city like Los Angeles where the Cali weather is always perfect and happy. Fun colors definitely shine bright in my wardrobe year round."

Kirsten Dunst Would Rather Have A Coach Bag Than A Gym Coach
A quick gym session in Studio City, CA, doesn't stop Kirsten Dunst from wearing a few designer names, including her Coach Mini Borough Bag in Pebbled Leather ($378). While the bag seems too small to store a water bottle, towel, and other gym necessities, it's still a good size that you can easily place alongside you while riding the elliptical or place at the front of the studio during your yoga class. Plus, according to Purseblog, other celebrities like January Jones, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Karlie Kloss are also huge fans of this particular Coach bag—which we're sure they carry around outside of the gym.

Coach’s Latest Knock-Off Lawsuit Just Won Them $5.5 Million
With super fakes being all the rage these days, it's no surprise that designers are getting fed up with knock-offs. So we have to give major props to Coach. The brand just won a $5.5 million settlement case against the Florida-based flea market Swap Shop, which was selling fake Coach items as far back as 2004! But another reason why this is a huge win in the anti-fake war is that this case marks the first time a property owner has been sued for creating knock-offs, instead of websites or factories. A rep for Coach tells WWD that the brand will continue to check up on the Swap Shop. If they find that the market keeps selling fake Coach goods, the sellers will have to pull the items within 30 days. Or face the wrath of Coach (who has filled more that 700 counterfeit suits).

There are still luxe leathers and covetable shoes and and accessories, but it's sleeker, cooler and way more urban. And we're completely obsessed!

The last installment of our fall shoe preview comes courtesy of Lauren Dimesky, the stylish blogger behind Adorn La Femme. We're so into her edgy Cali style and we especially love how she gave these Coach Melody Booties ($348) a hip spin. Of course, these black wedge booties would look great with a pencil skirt or trousers, but Lauren proves they can also work with more unexpected outfits like black skinny jeans, an oversized jacket and a cool animal print bag.

If You Can’t Live Without Flats, These Are The Shoes You Should Own This Fall
Feet need a break from heels? We feel you, which is why we asked Sheryl Luke of Walk in Wonderland to style these casual Coach Catrin Flats ($175). Flat shoes often get a bad wrap for not being sexy or stylish or whatever enough, but we have to disagree. As Sheryl illustrates, it's all about finding the right flats and pairing them with the right pieces. Her metallic flats are the perfect complement to that insane embroidered jersey she's wearing and this outfit is anything but boring. Check out Sheryl's complete look below.

We Dare You Not To Fall In Love With These Perfect Black Ankle Booties
As much as I love scoping out street style blogs, I sometimes wonder if a real woman could actually put together and pull off the looks. I mean, who really wears 5 inch heels to walk around New York City? So instead of turning to a style blogger for this week's fall shoe preview, I stepped in front of the camera and decided to model a pair myself to prove that these trends aren't just for show. I'm a busy working NYC mom and I put this look together with my crazed lifestyle in mind. I started with these amazing Coach Ursa Booties ($348), which are super versatile and not too high, then added a trendy camo dress and a cargo jacket. I would easily wear this look to a fashion show, to the office and then to pick my daughter up from school. It's not fussy, but still cute (if I do say so myself). Check out the details below.

Add These Metallic Flats To Your Fall Must-Have Shopping List Stat
There may still be a few weeks left before the official start of autumn, but that doesn't mean you should wait any longer to start getting your closet ready for fall. When September 21 rolls around, you want to be ready with an amazing pair of booties, flats or wedges to wear in lieu of the sandals you've been living in for the summer months. So to help make sure you've got all your shoe bases covered this fall, we enlisted four of our favorite style bloggers (plus, one SHEfinds editor!) to showcase this season's hottest shoe trends. Over the next three weeks, check back to see some of the best street stylers modeling the shoes you'll be rocking until spring. First up, we challenged Nicole Levine of Frankie Hearts Fashion with styling these amazing metallic Coach Tabitha Flats ($198).

Coach Leaks Plans To Launch A Clothing Line
It's been a big week for Reed Krakoff. First, the designer made international news as the chosen one for Michelle Obama's pre-Inauguration swearing-in ensemble, as well as her Inauguration day suede boots. Now, Krakoff, who also serves as the president and executive creative director of Coach, has announced that the handbag and accessories company will be transitioning themselves into a lifestyle brand - putting themselves up as competition for brands like Tory Burch and Michael Kors. In repositioning as a lifestyle brand, Coach will be expanding their footwear and raising the price point for their handbags to above the usual $300 mark. And even though in the past the brand has insisted it wouldn't be entertaining the option of a ready-to-wear line, it seems they are no longer ruling it out. A recent hiring of Sandra Hill - former Paul Smith creative design director of women’s wear - to head up their women’s design department suggests that they may be gearing up to move into clothing. Though nothing has been confirmed, we're keeping our fingers crossed. Said Krakoff about the brand transition: Instead of designing accessories to fill a need, we’re thinking more about the woman, who she is, where she goes, what is her life like and how does it feel, to move Coach from…where you think of a Coach bag, to now when you think of Coach, you will think of a woman or a man and you think of their lifestyle. More information as this story develops. But in the meantime, click through the slideshow to check out some of our favorite new arrivals from the accessories giant.

Coach x Frye Jump On The Collab Wagon With Serious Fall Footwear: Shop Now
Lately, most designer collaborations have seemed a bit like a maybe-forced marriage of two wholly different aesthetics (read: Matthew Williamson's amazingly unexpected rain boots for Havaianas, Fleabags x J.Crew's carry-all leather tote, which turned out to be adorable), but just as we'd expected for Coach's partnership with Frye, the like-minded heritage companies found a way to perfect what they both do best: leather. On sale today, the 8-piece footwear collection ranges from $398 for a short metallic Veronica boot with gold buckle detailing and $1,863 for the Coyote Harness Boot, an exceptionally luxurious winter shoe. Also included are tall motorcycle boots with the Coach's signature C and a pair of ocelot-print haircalf boots. It's a good thing the designs are a timeless combination of both brand's aesthetics, because between Coach's 100-step production process and Frye's 190-step treatment, you can be sure your pair will last you for years.

Shop The Coach Legacy Collection (Get An Iconic Handbag In Every Color)
When one thinks classic handbag, Coach comes to mind immediately. (Which explains why it's one of the most searched purses on the Internet.) The leather goods maker started making fashionable, durable bags in 1941 and became a pioneer in color when they released their first blue bag in 1962. The 71-year-old company has decided to freshen up its image and brand. This fall, look for Coach's newest collection, Legacy, a modern collection inspired by iconic styles from their archive. Some silhouettes are updates of their most popular designs, while others are inspired by classics and ﬁnished with Coach details. You can get an iconic Large Duffle or a Medium Candace Carryall (a customer favorite) for $398. Check out the slideshow highlighting all the colors and styles in the collection.

BREAKING! Coach Will Only Make 175 Of These James Nares Limited-Edition Totes
Lately, the art world and the fashion world are mixing - and we're loving the results. If you don't have a clue about contemporary art, fashion designers are taking it upon themselves to shine a bright spotlight on their favorites. Think of it as the lazy girl's crash course in contemporary art 101. Coach's upcoming collaboration - a set of six limited-edition Coach x James Nares totes - are no exception. Using Nares's signature "wave" design (which he paints on huge canvases while he hangs from the ceiling), these hefty leather-trimmed hand-[ainted canvas bags are perfect for lugging your iPad, beach towel, umbrella and maybe even a six pack of Corona, with limes. Coach is only making 175 of them, so you'd better sign up for notifications so you can get yours first. From Louis Vuitton x Stephen Sprouse and Jimmy Choo x Rob Pruitt, to Tory Burch x James de la Vega, it's a full-on trend we hope lasts more than just a few seasons.
Coach Plots Its Image Revamp–With A Throwback (Over Your Shoulder). Meet The New Legacy Collection
This isn't your grandmother's Coach. The 71-year-old company has decided to freshen up its image and brand (which took a bit of a dive during 2008's recession) by introducing a new "360-degree lifestyle concept": Coach Legacy, a line of handbags, hats, outerwear, shoes, jewelry, and other accessories aimed at a more affluent and modern customer. “Historically, Coach in the old days was more somber and more straightforward,” said brand president and executive creative director Reed Krakoff. With the Legacy collection, Krakoff seeks to modernize the brand with "feminine, graphic" styles and heftier, more quality materials. While most Coach handbags currently retail for around $299, Coach Legacy bags will start at $178 for small purses, with larger items (like totes) running up to $798. Shop some of Coach's current offerings in our slideshow above, and look for Legacy's release on August 1.

Coach Re-Issues The Iconic Willis Handbag Making The ’90s Officially Back
Claire Danes is on TV, printed pants are becoming a thing again, and Brandy and Monica just released a new single together. (Even Cosby sweaters have had their moment in the sun.) So because of this, the '90s are obviously back. It's a welcome surprise that Coach has re-issued its bestselling handbag from the '90s, The Willis bag. It's $298, which is pretty affordable considering it'll last a few decades and has a totally classic top handle silhouette.
Hugo Guinness For Coach Is The Perfect V-Day Gift For Your Guy
One thing I've learned from my husband and guy friends is that men hate Valentine's Day. There is so much pressure to perform -- and no, I don't mean in the bedroom, I mean the "performance" of giving lavish gifts, making romantic dinner reservations, and maybe even throwing in a surprise or two. That all sounds great, I know, but the run-around leaves our guys exhausted -- and without getting anything in return. Thankfully, Coach just released their latest menswear collaboration -- a line of wallets, tablet cases and other small leather accessories by Brooklyn-based designer Hugo Guinness. The guy-friendly designs include handcuffs, a boxer, aviators and more. Plus we know he needs a new wallet anyways (no surprise here if your guy uses a rubber band as a money). For more Valentine's Day ideas, check out our guide to the 50 best Valentine's Day dresses.

The 14K gold finish makes it a luxe gift any lady would love. (more…)

Clockwise from left: Band of Outsiders, Coach, Philip Lim, Milly While I've never been a fan of counterfeit purses, this new project makes me secretly happy they exist. On July 11th at 11 a.m. EST, eBay Fashion Vault will release their collection of 50 designer totes which take a stand against counterfeit handbags. Designers include CFDA President Diane Von Furstenberg, Rodarte, Marchesa, Foley & Corinna, Phillip Lim and more (i.e. anyone who's anyone in the fashion world right now). The purses cost between $35 and $150, and will be available via eBay's "Buy It Now" function---so you won't have to worry about sniping it at the end of the auction. Now this is some fashion activism we're truly excited for. (more…)
Cool Wallets To Keep You Calm While You Blow Your Savings On A New Fall Wardrobe
With the workouts our bank accounts get during fall shopping season, it pays to have a cute wallet to soften the blow by giving you something pretty to look at each time you make a purchase. Plus, a great wallet is itself a great fall purchase, cheaper than a whole handbag, and a lot more useful since you use it every single day. Here are some of our favorite choices from around the web. The Coach Madison Medium Wallet ($118) is sophisticated on the outside but young at heart on the inside with its petal-colored interior. A lifelong classic, this wallet is a sound investment, even if the purchases you make with it go out of style. Kate Spade's Big Apple Card Wallet ($55) is an affordable, high-gloss way to get in on the season's hottest color and not overstuff your bag in the process, especially if you blew most of your shopping budget on skinny jeans and over the knee boots. One of my favorite accessories trends is the studded look, and the Banana Republic Minna Studded Leather Wallet ($79.50) gets it right by not overdoing it, making this wallet a keeper long after we're sick of studs. Remember best friend necklaces? We do too, and we adore Rebecca Minkoff's Best Friends Pouches ($73.50, down from $98), a playful but grown-up version of the trend. Give it as a gift or split the set with a friend and your half is less than $40! To reward yourself for not going out and buying a knockoff off the Van Cleef and Arpels clover necklace, consider the chic Comme des Garcons Zip Around Wallet ($215). Season after season, this clover-embossed wallet will make you feel like a million bucks. Of course one accessory won't do it, so be sure to shop our guides to sunglasses, jewelry staples and handbags. Also, continue the wallet obsession with some of our wallet-themed posts.
