In this Frillseeker’s eyes, Coach is a bag brand I’ve always passed over: fussy, over logo-ed and with shapes that make me shudder, I’m not a fan.
The Legacy collection, where Coach re-imagines heritage pieces, has made me do a bit of a backtrack though. It’s nice, and then some. There are at least three – no, make that four – bags I’d happily tote.

None more so than the super-cute, super-chic, super-lustable Legacy Flight Bag. Deceptively simple, this little cross-body piece isn’t a shouter and it’s really all the better for it. Not too small, not too big, it’s just a really nice piece for a dressed-down weekend or for anyone who’s not crazy into madly OTT evening glam.
Part of the Legacy collection for about six months or so now, it’s starting to build a head of steam among bloggers and ‘slebs as a bag to have. Jaime King, Sophia Bush and Anna Kendrick have all been spotted with it and the really nice thing about it is that it’s accessible: at €265, you can actually imagine owning it.
Here’s the second really nice thing about the bag: Arnotts stock the brand, so if you truly, madly, deeply can’t be without, then hey – you know where to go.
