What do women want? In the hands of Bonnie Cashin and Stuart Vevers, the enigma often tossed around like a hot potato hardly seems all that mysterious. Just like Cashin was known for her functional elegance, Vevers' youthful spirit has given Coach new direction: One that's trained on building a legacy of storied modernity.

As an ode to the brand's 75th hurrah, the creative director has once again revived an archival classic — this time, a 1970s hit by Coach's ex-designer, Cashin. Reinstating the Duffle and its signature turnlock, Vevers' touch comes by way of a streamlined body and cheery primaries (pine green, canary yellow and bordeaux) — galvanising its unassuming elegance with a shot of energy. 

Conceived in pebble and glovetanned leather, bear in mind that these contemporary renditions are not aplenty; and are exclusive only to the Takashimaya Coach boutique here in Singapore. Already in store, it's time to gather your girl troop and get in the game because, hey, your purse-onality's at stake.  

Coach Takashimaya is located at 391 Orchard Road, Ngee Ann City, Takashimaya Department Store, Branded Boutiques Level 1.
