First Look: Anna Sui for Coach!

posted on: Wednesday, 15 February 2012

As I write there are Anna Sui for Coach bags sitting backstage waiting to make their debut at the Anna Sui show this evening in New York at 6pm. Coach have given us a first look at what we can expect with this exclusive sketch of the collaboration and we're loving what we see. Two iconic Duffle Sacs have been completely made over by Anna Sui and feature a Fleur-de-Lis design on one and a Dragonfly on the other. These are limited editions runs and each bag will be numbered, decorated with signature handtags and come with a removable interior logo wristlet.

“Coach’s iconic Duffle handbag represents such a significant part of their history,” says Anna. “It’s truly an honor to put my own spin on this seminal design. The Anna Sui version adds a Boho feeling with whip-stitching, big tassels and appliqu├ęd art nouveau dragonflies.”

“Anna has been an integral part of the New York fashion scene since she started her business,” says Jason Weisenfeld, Senior Vice President of Global Brand Communications and Collaborations for Coach. “She’s an icon in her own right and she understands the essence of Coach, so we loved seeing the Duffle through her eyes.”

Look for the bags online this autumn!
