Retro!! The fever is on and we are so very excited to be celebrating anniversary after anniversary this year. From Louis Vuitton and Chanel to Coach, it appears that the retro bags are in and they are here to stay a small while, limited editions that might be extraordinarily hard to find afterwards. If you are an eBay reseller, you might want to get your hands on one of the Coach vintage bags for now as it will most probably be raking in the cash afterwards. Anniversaries are often the best times to find the best in bags, particularly since there is no way you will ever outgrow them. Young or old, handbags will always hold some sort of place in your lives.
For their 75th anniversary, Coach has put out an interesting line-up of vintage products the original bags from the Seventies and Eighties brought back to the forefront so you may enjoy what your parents had back in the day. With both decades so hot off the press right now, huge inspirations on the fashion runways, it only makes sense to have celebratory collections made up at least partly of the more vintage looks from those days.
Each of the bags has been sourced from around the United States and restored artfully to represent the brand’s original hopes for it, each one as individual as the next. There is even a part of the collection that has adorable Snoopy fabric patches on it, something that is only available at the Paris concept store named Colette, alongside the new flagship store for the brand on Rue Saint Honore.
What makes it so special is the sheer number of vintage handbags available! There are 35 different styles, including the Penny, Stewardess and the classic Duffle bag. The vintage global launch of the project is expected to occur on Feb. 1, 2016, with an additional 75 bags going on sale as well. As if that was not enough to drool about we have the 1941 runway show’s collection for spring available exclusively at Colette as well, something that will certainly be pulling in the fashion tourists as they clamour they get their hands on pieces that are as old as the company itself, first shown on the New York Fashion Week stage September of 1940.
2016 marks the 75th anniversary of Coach and we are so very excited about it. The leather goods and accessories company was founded in 1941 in New York City and currently holds stocks at $30.58, one, which sees a flow on a constant basis. Those who invest in Coach are often quite happy with the results.
Now, we are wondering where we will be storing all these lovelies, particularly the brown leather pieces with a little Snoopy emblem in front, the patched up messenger bags looking too adorable to pass up in black. Looks like Charlie Brown will be our new Christmas treat as we wait impatiently to get our hands on the adorable little dog’s own stylish handbags.
