While I have sworn off buying bags (because I have about 30 or so which never get used. I blame the It bag craze), I may just end up eating my words when Coach‘s James Nares collection becomes available in a month or so. The reason for this is that I love the work of James Nares and I have a small collection of his stunning brushstroke canvas. They are fluid and majestic, and the vibrant, jewel tone colors instantly pull you in. For the Coach + James Nares collection, the canvas tote bags are pretty much like a James Nares artwork—stark background with a single shot of brushstroke. There are five colors—green, blue, orange, black and fuchsia and they come in a limited edition of 175 per color. They will retail for US$798, a little steep for a canvas tote but that is really a small fraction of an actual James Nares art work.
