American luxury leather goods company Coach Inc. launched their first Men’s boutique store in Singapore, which boasts the widest range of the label’s Men product, at the third level of Japanese Department store Takashimaya.
Men would feel at ease with the clean, uncluttered bright space, well organised allocation of products which brings one to explore items from lifestyle products such as Ready to Wear leather jackets, leather sneakers and small satchels to formal full leather briefcases and messenger bags.
Coach Inc. collaborates with American Fashion Designer Billy Reid, who is known for his “low-fi Southern-bred luxury” designs with classic styles in high quality fabrics, but with unusual accents. His collection features a range of marvelous large structured leather totes and messenger bags materialised in supple Coach leather. COACH Men boutique will host exclusive collaboration pieces and limited edition pieces for the discerning Coach Men connoisseur.
Billy Reid’s exclusive collection of leather tote bags are roomy, timeless and refined, perfect for the daily commute to work or leisure. Available in both suede and leather, one is definitely spoilt for choice. I am particularly attracted to the Suede Warrior tote in deep blue suede (S$1,750).
An exclusive electric ocean blue leather Bleecker leather day bag (S$1,750) in COACH Men which stands out from the sea of black and brown leather bags.
I predict that the most favourited and sought after item from the Billy Reid range would be this large pebbled Coach leather messenger bag known as Pebble Florence Messer (S$1,580) which looks to be versatile with its many straps which certainly looks easy to carry with effortless charm. With COACH reinventing its products in splendid colour schemes and utilitarian chic designs while endearing to its fine leather house roots, COACH is definitely a brand to keep in mind for new affordable luxury bag purchases!
