If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. Or in the case of the Coach 1941 collection’s Dinky, if it was good way back when, it will be good enough for today. Celebrating Coach’s 75th anniversary this year, the reintroduced Dinky is an archival piece from the 70s that’s also now available in Singapore at Coach Wisma Atria.
Measuring 23 cm across by 13 cm, the Dinky isn’t as small as the size might sound. Packing a lot into its tiny frame, you’ll find amongst other things, a main compartment, a side compartment as well as an additional kiss-lock purse that’s located within the bag which is great for loose change. Made of glovetanned leather and available in at least 11 different colours from Canary to Cornflower to Dahlia (that’s bright yellow, pale yellow and a gorgeous red for those not attuned to fancy colour speak), the interiors all come in contrasting hues as well for that extra pop.
Priced at SGD650 (yes, it’s really that affordable), each Dinky comes with an additional shoulder strap that’s also removable, which just means you can carry it at least 3 ways: as a clutch sans strap, slung over the shoulder and of course, across the body as well.
And here’s the best part. Remember those tikam-tikam boards filled with little packets that we paid a few cents each for without knowing what the freebie included inside was when we were young? Each Dinky will come with one of the charms that’s shown above, and the thing is you won’t know what you’ll be getting until you open the little box that comes with each bag. Which is half of the fun, in my honest opinion.
Nice bag, free charm, complimentary monogramming and here’s one more thing to note before I sign off. If you were to pick up the Dinky or any other Coach RTW, bag or accessory today or tomorrow (8 & 9 April 2016) at their flagship store in Wisma Atria, you’ll also be able to bring home a complimentary floral bouquet to celebrate the arrival of the new season. Seriously, what’s not to love? #CoachIcon #WhatsYourCharm
