I really do love purses, but it’s still not everyday that a bag on display in a store window will make me stop in my tracks. These summer tote bags from Coach are the cutest, most whimsical purses I’ve seen in a long time, and I’m not even a big fan of Coach! The coarse canvas body, the rope handle, the leather trim, the little “baggage tags” and the green, brown, and gold beading scream “SUMMER!” It’s like a wonderful seaside holiday of lazy days lounging on sandy beaches and wandering through tide pools has been incarnated into a collection of totes.
Two Summer Tote Bags from Coach
The beaded canvas bag below is my favorite. I love how they’ve embellished the Coach logo with different shapes and colors of beads. The clear plastic baggage tags are a wonderful little detail. I love that there’s both a traditional handle and a removable shoulder strap.
I don’t love the second one quite as much as the first, but the beaded starfish is pretty great. I also love the little portholes with the completely decorative leather ties. So casual and cute, but so glamorous as well.
My only wish is that I had purchased one! But I didn’t and now I only have the photos to enjoy.
What do you think of them? Do you find them as fabulously whimsical as I do?
