Coach Barbie

The iconic Coach brand was founded in New York in 1941 as a men’s leather goods company. Over the years its product range has expanded into women’s accessories and apparel keeping craftsmanship and detail at the core of the brand. For Summer 2013 Mattel have treated us fashionistas to a Coach Barbie styled from top to toe in the SS 2013 collection.

Her oversize check Tattersall Trench is combined with a striped tee and red ultrasuede skirt that features the now classic turnlocks, first applied to Coach bags by Bonnie Cashin – Coach’s 1960’s Creative Director – inspired by the closure of the hood of her convertible…

Barbie’s classic Coach ensemble is inspired by the SS 2012 collection and if your wardrobe is suddenly feeling a little wanting, find the cropped Tattersall trench here:
