The Coach Rhyder Bag Arrived Just in Time for National Handbag Day

Categories:Other Brands

Coach is the most quintessentially American of handbag brands and it always has been, even before Stuart Vevers arrived to explore traditional workwear and the American West with his first collection as Coach’s creative director. At the center of that collection is the brand’s newest marquee design, the Coach Rhyder Bag.

Coach Rhyder Shearling Messenger, $1,300 via Coach


The Rhyder line is all about a mixture of familiar details; longtime Coach lovers will recognize the brand’s signature turnlock and hangtags, while anyone interested in fashion will pick up on the rugged details that balance the luxurious finish of this bag. They’re adornments that usually signal the weight and heft of a product, but the Rhyder is unexpectedly light and easy to wear.

For its debut season, the line contains a satchel in three sizes and both north-south and east-west proportions, a messenger in rich textures like shearling and python-embossed leather, and color options ranging from bright red nubuck to staid black leather.

The Rhyder is the essence of modernized Americana, which seems just right for this week. National Handbag Day is an American holiday, after all.

You can shop the Rhyder via Coach, starting at $350 for a small leather satchel and topping out at $1,300 for the shearling messenger.

Coach F/W14 Rhyder Collection

Categories:Other Brands

coach_rhyder-collection1As far as September is concerned, it’s the busiest month of the year, what with fashion capitals buzzing with shows and fashion labels pushing out new season offerings. Take Coach, for example. A couple of days ago Stuart Vevers debuted his 2nd collection for the American house in New York City (you can preview the presentation via this link, by the way), and starting tomorrow at Coach Wisma Atria, the F/W14 Rhydercollection will make her debut in a plethora of colours and sizes.

coach_rhyder-collection2Described as a tribute to Coach’s original ‘it’ girl, Bonnie Cashin, Stuart Vevers drew from the archives (and her own creations for Coach), playing with proportions starting from the adorably tiny (my favourite kind of bag) to a size that’s almost square  and robust, a larger throw-everything-in kind of a bag suited for the busy girl on the go.

coach_rhyder-collection3Detailed with everything from Cashin’s original turn-lock clasp to rivets and studs, other unexpected touches that make the Rhyder unique include scalloped leather embellishments and hanging feather charms cut out from leather that give it that rock-and-roll all-American vibe.

The 3 sizes of the Rhyder Satchel that will be available tomorrow at Coach Wisma Atria (and the rest of the Coach boutiques in Singapore come Friday) are the Rhyder Satchel 24, the Rhyder Satchel 32 and the Rhyder Satchel 33, and are priced at SGD700,SGD895 and SGD1295 respectively. There will be a special Workwear Ryhder 33 (that’s the robust one I was talking about that will also be made available tomorrow, limited to just 23 pieces in Singapore and retail for SGD1495 each.

In other words, it’s time to head down for a close-up look yourself, and from what I’ve heard from those who’ve had the privilege of seeing it in person already, it’s not the kind of bag you fall for at first sight, but one that slowly grows on you over time.
