Soho - district in Manhattan noted for its old warehouses converted into restaurants, galleries and theaters.
Why would Coach name this line Soho? Simply put, it's a classic design brought back to life in a way that only Coach could produce. These amazing vintage mini bags, wallets, and purses are perfect for fine dining, art gazing and for placing in your lap at a theater.
The Black Soho Coach Bag
is the hallmark of a woman's delicate elegance and fortitude. That is why the Soho is so special. This line is the best of the best. As in vintage, it comes from the finest line of Coach Purses. It is the best of the past complimenting the trends of today. It represents the quality of past techniques and designs coupled with the diversity of today.
I have a black Signature Coach with the soft leather trim and silver buckles Soho. I love this bag. This is the bag I use daily. It compliments everything in my closet. It is perfect for all occasions, whether a trip to the grocery store, work or an evening out, you really cannot go wrong with Coach Soho Leather Small Hobo
Let's talk about durability. The Soho is also so incredibly durable that it can withstand my toddler's destructive little fingers. This bag did not become a classic because it was crafted from cheap materials put together sparingly. It is classic because of Coach's signature materials and vintage hobo design that are guaranteed to outlast any trend, style or fad.
The strap is small enough to be hand held without looking like a dingle berry but long enough to be held under your arm incase you need a free hand. My Soho is a zipper top handbag, but I also like the flip top design Soho in tweed brown, blue and black. It is more modern vintage than my Soho because it captures the essence of the late 70's and early 80's.
Coach is no dummy, old trends always come back. Today the 80's are hot, but Coach has put a classic spin on the Boom era. Today we know that hot pink is not a color that should be worn, it is a highlighter. The Coach Soho also comes in twill. In other words, tweed was originally called twill because it was an unfinished woolen fabric woven into a twill pattern instead of a plain pattern. Why would you want plain? While the Soho line and hobo design is simple, it is defiantly not plain. Who else can design a mini purse in tweed blue and make it look hot?
In past eras tweed was a commodity because of its moisture-resistance and durability but soon became obsolete because the production and cost could not keep up with the worlds growing demands and industry boom. So they switched to materials such as polyester and cotton. Lucky for us Coach knows that quality is better than quantity and tweed as well as their other Signature materials will last. Maybe you haven't noticed that a couch, not to be confused with Coach, made with tweed have withstood the years better than the cheap cost effective ones. This is what sets the Coach apart from the rest.
Whatever your flavor: red, green, white, pink, brown, black, small, large, mini bags, wallets or purses, Coach has got it all. It is a little more expensive, but you know it will last. I mean last; not just as in it will not fall apart, but last as in; whatever the trend happens to be, you know that the Soho line and hobo design will always be in.
The Coach Soho Signature Small Flap
reminds me of Breakfast at Tiffany's. Audrey Hepburn is the icon of vintage style. She is the fine wine of early Hollywood traditions and a legend not just by talent but by beauty and grace, a face that will live forever. Like the Coach Soho, a fine wine of early trends that became a legend not just by craftsmanship but by the beauty and grace they bring to any woman. Maybe a Soho won't make you look like Audrey Hepburn, but it sure will make you feel like her.
