Coach’s Year of the Dragon Accessories | Zhang Lan Designs Chinese Dragon Bags

Posted on: Jan 7

Coach Year of the Dragon ToteCoach is celebrating the Year of the Dragon with a new Zhang Lan illustrated capsule collection. Coach commissioned the Chinese artist, who is a member of the EDGE Creative Collection, to create the Asian dragons which adorn the label's new tote bag and small leather goods.

Lan's illustrations resemble the traditional ink style paintings created by Chinese masters for generations.  It's no ordinary dragon either. Lan fashioned his creature after Qinglong, a famous Chinese beast known as the Azure Dragon of the East. He's one of four symbols of the Chinese constellation, and he represents both the east and the season of spring. The Chinese people believe the dragon was reincarnated as some of their most famous generals through history and folklore.

I love the way the menacing mythical gold animal pops against Coach's classic signature print. They really elevate the fairly drab colored leather and make it something special. I really like the tote, but if you're not sure about carrying the print on such a large scale you could indulge in a wallet, passport case, or travel organizer.

No prices have been released at this point, but with Coach making an effort to keep their prices reasonable I wouldn't expect this capsule collection to be too exorbitant. Look for the Year of the Dragon accessories soon at your local Coach store.
