Coach 1941 Goes Rogue!

OMG!  Who has seen or maybe hasn’t seen the new swoonworthy and oh, so Fabulous, Coach Rogue bag?!  I must admit, I am not a huge fan of the brand, sure I’ve owned a Coach bag or three in my handbag past however, over time I found myself thinking that the brand, the look had just became a bit too predictable and well, boring.  So boring and predictable that it was beyond easy for EVERYONE to knock them off in every way possible.  And when that happens, well…Make no mistake about it, the quality of the Coach leather bags was always substantial, but the styling just no longer resonated with my personal style.  I felt in a lot of ways the brand was targeting either the very young or much older and I was in the middle– not young, not old, but definitely fashionable :).  Anyway, this latest collection of bags might be a game changer, this bag in particular is definitely  giving me pause and I am giving it some serious consideration!  This bag is gorgeous and would be a great addition to any Fall wardrobe!  The Rogue bag’s original debut was earlier this year as part of Coach’s Pre-Fall/Fall showings so it is most definitely available NOW!  This bag is available in an array of hot hot colors and materials for the Fall season!

The bag is from Coach’s 1941 collection which is its higher-end, more couture– if you will, collection. That being said, be prepared, this bag and any other bag from the collection is a bit pricier than your average Coach bag, prices for this bag start at $795.  The bag is available in other exotic materials and accents which can increase the price to upwards of $1400.

The Rogue bag is made of beautiful glove-tanned pebble leather, features luxurious suede lining and beautiful signature hardware, including protective feet on the bottom (always a nice add).  The bag is divided into two compartments and features two top handles and a removable straps so that you may carry the bag on your arm as a satchel or over your shoulder.  The bag measures: 9″ (L) x 5″ (H) x 2″ (W).

The bag does have a bit of weight– I personally don’t think that it’s heavy but I’ve heard from some that the bag was a tad bit heavy.   Not uncomfortably so, but you would definitely notice that you were carrying this bag.   Keep in mind this is a quality leather bag with substantial hardware accents, you should expect it to have a bit of weight. Disclaimer:  I tend to favor bags that are on the larger side, and I often carry a lot in my bag, so my expectation and tolerance is probably different from most :).

Do you own this bag?  Love it?  Or just “meh”?  Tell us what you think, I’m still considering so I’d love to hear from you!
