The Coach + Billy Reid Collection is Here

Did you know Coach was originally founded as a men’s brand? That’s right, the name on the beloved bags your mothers, wives, girlfriends and daughters carry used to be synonymous with dapper leather goods for gentlemen. Founded in New York City in 1941, Coach is known for collaborating with some of the most interesting names in art and design over the years. And just in time for fall dressing, we are so excited to shop the Coach + Billy Reid collection, launching in stores today.

It was only natural for Billy Reid to design a line for Coach. The Florence, Alabama-based designer’s uniquely Southern perspective is inspired by a modern approach to American luxury with a nod to dapper dandyism. But this isn’t the first time the two names have worked together. When Reid won the Vogue/CFDA Fashion Fund competition in 2010, Coach was the sponsor. “With his southern roots and unique outlook, Billy brings a breath of fresh air to fashion,” Jeffrey Uhl, Senior Vice President of Men’s Design at Coach, said. “His dedication to craftsmanship, quality and heritage is identical to that embraced by Coach.”

And the feeling is mutual. As a baseball fan, Reid was excited to learn a loved, worn-in leather baseball glove was the inspiration for Coach’s founders when they launched the company. “I’ve always admired Coach, and I’m very proud of the work we’ve done together,” Reid said.

The collection is a stunner with something for every man looking for a timeless leather bag. Rich, rugged blue and green suede add splashes of color to elegant black and brown. Pebbled leather and Southern alligator lend texture to classic shapes. Wrapped flasks, baseball mitts and a bar accessories kit make perfect gifts. Our favorite piece? The handsome Warrior Tote in blue suede, ideal for everything from work to weekend getaways.

The Coach + Billy Reid collection is available in stores today and at coach.com.
