That’s Ali Michael starring in the new Spring-Summer 2009 Womens Coach ad campaign, who was reportedly paid almost USD50,000 for it. What I am more keen on however, is the bag she is clutching, the new Coach Parker Satchel (SGD1149) in soft, lightweight leather. It may not look like much on the outside, and I actually think it’s intentional. There will always be those who will avoid anything with a monogram pattern like the black plague, and this will appeal to those who like their bags simple and clean.
I actually love the inside more, it’s roomy and filled with enough pockets and slots to satisfy any woman’s need to hoard. Even the kiss-lock pocket in the middle is a nice touch, ensuring you’ll get to keep away your purse and other valuables away from prying hands. Besides Yellow, I also saw one in the sweetest Baby Blue just now while I was window-shopping at Isetan Scotts.
And while you’re there, check out the Coach Parker Wristlet as well. At SGD179 it’s definitely a keeper.
