From the upcoming Fall-Winter 2011 Womens Coach line-up, the Coach Chelsea collection is a selection of handbags that are distinguished by the elongated turnlock in front that’s exclusive to the pieces. And while there are already existing Chelsea bags from S/S11 in the form of a boxy satchel and a tote, F/W11 sees a new introduction to the family, namely the Coach Chelsea Dowel Flap (USD798).
Classically styled with just the right touch of embellishments, it is not hard to love this shoulder bag, considering the fact that it is well-proportioned with all the prerequisite bells and whistles. Able to wear it 2 ways, check. Partial chain-link shoulder strap with pretty bow leather details at the side, check. Contrast trim stitching that adds that sophisticated touch, check. Covered flap to keep everything snug and safe, check.
In other words, whether you pick the ones in Tan or Grey, you’ve got a winner on your hands. Available in Singapore from July 2011, here’s another quick update for fans of Coach. They will be opening a new boutique at VivoCity in the next few months, as well as a huge flagship in the heart of Orchard Road come 2012. I know where it’ll be, I’m just not saying anything else just yet.
