We know. We give Billy Reid a lot of love around here. But when our most well-heeled editors caught wind of the Alabama designer’s new collaboration with Coach, there was clearly more fawning to do. True to Billy Reid’s nostalgic Southern aesthetic, this ladylike handbag, named after the town he calls home, comes in a textured blue nubuck leather that’s far more versatile than you’d think. We’re declaring it the new Southern “It” bag, and considering you’ll wear it, oh, every day for the rest of your life, the price is justifiable when you do the cost-per-wear math. Yep, we’re smitten.
What do you think is the next instant classic?
