The Pitch » "An American Legacy"


In case you missed them the first go-round (and you might be young enough that it's not your fault), Coach has re-released a few select items from their archives, with quite a bit of fanfare (fronted by Gwyneth Paltrow and premiered on Net-A-Porter, no less).  It's their 70th anniversary this year, so I dipped into my archives for an ad campaign run in the early 1990s - also touting the brand's American heritage - and a different sort of celebrity.  The Classic Collection restores the Duffle (top left) in all its glory, and it's possible the Backpack (bottom right) has been around all along; otherwise the City bag can take the Spence's place (bottom left), though for my money I'd grab the Field bag (in lieu of the Kensington, top right) and fill it up with a vintage copy of The Sun Also Rises and year's supply of turrón.
