Coach has certainly developed a knack for bringing the drama in recent seasons. Just feast your eyes on The Large Soft Borough Bag, a to-die-for example of practical style with a twist. There’s something unabashedly sexy about the rugged leather, especially in this mouth-watering shade of espresso. A hint of berry trim emboldens the design just enough, but what I really love here is the overall simplicity: it doesn’t require ostentatious hardware or gigantic outer pockets to look phenomenal. It’s appealing in an earthy way – so chic. Available for $1000 at Coach.
