Coach Spring Summer 2011 Mens Hamptons Canvas Tote
If you have been a longtime reader of my blog, you would have notice I am a huge fan for nautical and military themes. Be it in bags or ready to wear. And I love tote bags, especially canvas ones. Recently I have acquired a new penchant for retro hip, all thanks to Ace Hotel (I am so inspired by Ace New York right now) that I love a touch of historical inspiration in designs.
While browsing thru Coach’s new Spring Summer 2011 Mens Accessories, I spotted these amazing Hamptons Canvas Totes, updated this season with nautical stripes and interesting camouflage patterns (formed from their ‘C’ initial). But designed in a way where they evoke a nostalgic appeal. The grommet detailing on the sides reminds me of canvas sails reinforced with similar metal rings exuding an even more vintage workwear feel.
These totes scream lust! I want all four (my favourite being the nautical stripe design)! Perfect bag for toting around anywhere, functional and chic:-) Best of all, they retail for HKD3450 (approx. SGD560). And if you are wondering where all these good design aesthetics come from for this American luxury brand, well... Reed Krakoff (I have raved about his gorgeous Boxer Totes) is at the helm of the design department. Hence, I am not surprised I have fallen for Coach's man bags too!
