Coach Swagger20 Carryall

Categories:Other Brands

coach_ss15-swagger20-caryallLooking like the lovechild of at least 3 bags is the new S/S15 offering from Coach, theSwagger, which comes in a few sizes. No prizes on guessing my favourite, of course, the tiniest of the lot, the Swagger20. Better yet, it will come in at least 8 different colours, from brighter colours like Acid Lemon and Pea to pastel hues like Mint and Peach. Measuring some 20 cm across by 14.5 cm, it has a well-organised interior for bits and bobs and also sports its very own long shoulder sling.

Priced at USD350 (I’ll update the price in SGD once I get it) and to be made available in early February, it’s definitely THE bag for the season as far as affordability and fun are concerned. One more thing before I sign off, for those who like their bags a tad shimmery, it also comes in 3 different metallic hues, Metallic Pea, Metallic Sky and Metallic Tangerine for the extra bit of bling.

Everything about Coach Kristin Replica Handbag

Categories:Other Brands

Coach is one of the most loved and well-known brands in the world. Everybody like their bags, men and women, we are all crazy about them. We all recognize their logo and there are millions of people that continue to support them season after season, year after year. Coach was at first, in 1941 a family run workshop established in New York, Manhattan, bun in a very short period of time it became renowned for its style and for the quality of the products. The Company was expanding every year and this is the reason for which we are expecting new beautiful lines every season.

The Coach Kristin line is special for not having the Coach Signature logo. It is a clean line, it has a lot of the Coach qualities but it doesn’t have the Signature. For this line they used soft and elegant colors like: shades of coral, pink, ivory, and burnished amber. These bags seem simple, effortless, but they are not, there is actually a lot of work involved in creating these beautiful bags. There is not just simple leather; these bags have different finishes for each dimension and shape, they have fresh color blocking, embossed exotics, and rich glazed leather.

Besides the beautiful colors, the Coach Kristin replica bags is truly unique due to the very interesting and unique fashionable chain link straps. Some of the chains are an alternative between pewter and gold and others have a tortoiseshell-like finish. All the bags in this collection have a sleek turnlock closure that amplifies its beautiful aspect. This is the line that shows there is a lot more to say when it comes to the Coach collections.

I cannot tell you how much I love the Kristin Embossed Zip Top Tote. The embossed camel leather, the wonderful colors and the shape of this bag really took my soul and my mind. It is an all-purpose bag; you can wear it to the office, to the market, when you have a girl’s night out, or when you just want to get a cup of coffee with your best friend to chat about what happened last evening. The double top handles are accompanied by a chain-link strap and front pouch. If you think about getting one you should know that the price starts from $698 for the green zip top tote model and it gets to $1000 for the embossed version.

What I really like about this Coach Kristin replica bag collection is the way they combined the differing embossed leather details with a subtle palette of colors. They are soft, nicely shaped and just perfect to complete your daily outfit.

How to Spot a Coach Replica HandBag

Categories:Other Brands

If you know what to look for, spotting a Choach replica handbag is really not that difficult. You just need to research the model you want to buy, compare fake purse with the genuine one and pay attention to a few details. And you don’t even need to see the products in person. You can do this from home, right in front of your computer. Below I am going to tell you all about the secrets of distinguishing a Choach knockoff from the genuine bag.

Coach is one of the most popular handbags designers on the planet and it has opened its first store numerous years ago. Over the years, it launched more and more new outlet stores, innovative purses and incredible deals for its customers. The best part about buying authentic Coach handbags is that you can even do it online…of course, if you can afford these pricey purses. But what I love the most about their online store is that they have very clear product pictures that you can zoom in and study even the smallest detail, marking or stiching of each purse.

The most practical way of spotting a Coach replica bag is to do a thorough comparison between the knockoff and the genuine product. This is just a guideline on what you should check very closely on a knockoff, but you don’t need to stop here. The Internet is full of information on how to differentiate a fake from a real Coach purse. Do your researches and you will surely end up buying a good quality imitation bag.

No doubt about it, Coach makes the most robust and durable purses on the market. It uses very good quality materials so don’t get fooled by delicate materials that look very delicate and flimsy. The leather or canvas of a Coach bag is sturdy and feels very thick.

Also, take a look at the lining, stitching, color and pattern of the material. It is all in the details. It must have an elegant and authentic shine, without any visible defects, scratches or imperfections.

Do not forget to check the hardware. This should be made from a solid and durable metal. Plus, the buckles need to close and open tightly. These should be anything, but loose.

Most of the above tips apply to replica bags that are bought from an actual store, but when you are purchasing Coach fake bags online, you can’t enjoy all these opportunities of verifying all the different aspects and details of the purse. You need to pay attention to totally different things.

First, let’s start with a fun fact about Coach handbags: Genuine Coach bags are manufactured in China. You weren’t expecting this, isn’t it? It’s the nacked truth. Some designer bags, like Coach and Tory Burch are manufactured in China and this means that replicating these brands comes really easy to fake manufacturers because it all goes down there, in China. So if you see “Made in China” on a Coach handbag that doesn’t mean it is a replica. This is what it says on all the tags of the genuine Coach purses.

Check the Coach Pattern. Count the “C”s

The monogram of Coach bags is represented by the repeated “C” letter. Of course, this type of monogram is highly replicated, but its style is very distinctive and not all replica manufacturers manage to clone it correctly. The trick here is to see if the two Cs pattern is present on each row and if these are rotated between horizontal and vertical. And let’s not forget that the CC must be connected at the serif.

The Coach dust bag is important

From my point of view, you must know from what materials and what colors is the Coach dust bagmade of. An authentic looking Coach dust bag needs to be brown with red stitching and drawstring, if you are buying a purse. But if you are looking to purchase an smaller accessory then the Coach dust bag should be white with a red Coach logo embossed on the bottom right corner.

The tags

The tags are also essential in buying a genuine looking Coach bag. These need to be made from the same material, located on the same position, have the same shape and color, and of course the same style of text. And let’s not ignore what the text says. This must be identical to the real thing.

Genuine leather Coach tags

The most important thing is to consider the year and the model of the Coach handbag. Coach uses both leather and metal tags for its purses. Thee vary from year to year and from model to model. Also, pay attention to whether the leters are centered and if the stitching is perfectly straight.

Genuine Coach Creed Patch

All Coach handbags have the creed patch at the interior, regardless of the year when the purse was made. The important thing is to check its appearence and the embossing type of the serial number. The older Coach models have the serial number embossed into the leather while the newer ones have it printed on the creed patch.

The text from the tags should always be in capital letters and the serial number should begin with “No”. Also, the serial number should include 2 letters, 2 numbers, one dash and 4-5 other numbers.

The above tips are some of the best ways of determining if a Coach handbag is a poorly made replica or a really good quality one even when you are ordering online. If any one of these details is different than the original Coach bag then you shouldn’t buy it. Stay away from cheap Coach replica bag to avoid being dissapointed when you buy knockoffs from home.

Reed Krakoff “Suspends Operations,” is the Latest Big, New Brand to Encounter Trouble

Categories:Other Brands

Reed-Krakoff-Suspends-Operations

Late last week, Women’s Wear Daily reported that Reed Krakoff would suspend operations while in pursuit of new investment to keep the line afloat. While the news itself is a surprise, it’s not shocking that something was up at Krakoff’s company; it’s the third young, well-known brand in the past several months to either partially or completely shut down. There’s a reason for that: shoppers just aren’t buying ready-made “lifestyle brand” marketing.

With this news, Krakoff joins the somewhat inauspicious ranks of C. Wonder and Kate Spade Saturday; C.Wonder shut down its operations completely in February, liquidating its inventory and closing all its stores. Some thought the brand might survive as a wholesale business, but owner Chris Burch chose to try his luck elsewhere. Kate Spade Saturday also closed its stores, but for now, it plans to have a home within the existing Kate Spade website and retail stores.

With both of those brands, and now with Krakoff, at least part of the problem seems clear: Fashion customers are too savvy to buy into a ready-made “lifestyle brand” story when the brand has not already demonstrated its value and proficiency in some way first. Going full speed ahead into accessories, shoes, jewelry, frangrance, ready-to-wear and handbags (and in C. Wonder’s case, home decor) is too much, all at once, and all the unpleasant seams of fashion marketing show. The customer recognizes that she is being sold something and simply doesn’t know why she should care, and brands are doing a bad job of proving their case.

On the opposite end of the spectrum, we have young success stories like Mansur Gavriel, Edie Parker and Charlotte Olympia. All three started out with a very specific, narrow line of products (minimalist leather bags in neutral colors, bright acrylic clutches and whimsical footwear, respectively), and once customers responded positively, then each brand started to extend its reach in careful, well-planned, relatively conservative ways. So far, each brand has done a strong job of retaining its first fans while building its customer base and business.

The approaches taken by each of these sets of brands are at opposite extremes of the spectrum, and at this point, the savvier of the two is clear. Fashion customers won’t just buy anything put in front of them with a slick logo and a promise of luxury, and even in the case of Reed Krakoff, where many of the products were top-notch and the designer was an indsutry vet, a slower burn likely would have yielded a healthier business, in the long term. You have to let the customers come to you.

There’s a bit of hope for Reed, though. WWD reports that there’s still product in the pipelines and although the brand is closing its Madison Avenue store in the next few weeks, it will continue to operate its Soho store, Woodbury Commons outlet and its website for as long as possible–the hope is that the brand will be able to find new investment quickly and then pivot to a more “accessible luxury” model. It’s a market that Krakoff knows well, as the longtime creative director of Coach, and one that we hope he’ll be returning to with new funding soon.

When and if Krakoff resurrects itself as a brand, though, we hope it will be with a more measured approach. Customers have always been excited about his bags, if our comments section is any indication–we hope he will start there.
