Couched in a Legacy
This year, Coach—the leader of modern American accessories—celebrates its 65th anniversary as one of the world’s most loved and revered brands. The anniversary is commemorated with the grand launch of the Legacy Collection—a line of handbags, accessories and footwear that feature intricate details such as brass turnlock hardware and the Signature C fabric, all of which are the company’s trademarks. One bag you should certainly check out is the Legacy Leather Shoulder Bag, a creation crafted from smooth vintage leather and embellished beautifully with rugged brass hardware and a lovely strap. See it for yourself now at #01-34/35, Raffles City, 252 North Bridge Rd., 6837-2188.
