We were invited by fellow fashion blogger Emily Johnston of Fashion Foie Gras to celebrate her exclusive collaboration with American accessory label Coach. The launch was celebrated last Tuesday with a party held in the brand’s London flagship store, 41 New Bond Street.
Emily wanted to create a bag by a fashion blogger for the fashion blogger, meaning it had to be functional and useful as well as look good. Big enough to fit your heels, a section for your flats, and a padded pocket for the digital SLR. The main body of the bag is natural canvas trimmed with leather, complemented by central vertical stripes in blue and white – dominant colors of both the American and British flags.
Emily said, “Since being given the opportunity to design a bag with Coach, my feet haven’t touched the ground! Coach is the pinnacle of luxury and sophistication. Designing a bag with a brand that I have always held in such high regard has been the most nerve-racking, but also the most exhilarating, experience of my life. I couldn’t be prouder or more pleased with what we have produced.”
Jason Weisenfeld, Senior Vice President of Global Brand Communications and Collaborations, said, “This year marks our 70th anniversary and as we celebrate our rich heritage, we also embrace fresh and innovative new ideas. We are delighted to have collaborated with Fashion Foie Gras on this project.”
