Something to blog about: The Coach x Fashion Foie Gras bag

There’s no question Coach appreciates a good blog—the legendary leather brand has already done projects with Kelly Framel of The Glamourai, Emily Schuman of Cupcakes and Cashmere, Karla Deras of Karla’s Closet, and Krystal Simpson of What Is Reality Anyway—but now, it’s taking its love of the blogosphere across the pond.

The iconic accessories company has teamed up with Emily Johnston of Fashion Foie Gras on a new bag targeted toward—who else?—bloggers.

Some of the cool (and functional) features of the roomy tote are a padded pocket designed to hold a digital SLR camera as well as a separate compartment to stash a pair of flats.

The carryall also has top handles and a long shoulder strap for convenience, while an oversized tassel and a chic stripe in blue and white—a nod to both the American and British flags—add the finishing touches.

“Since being given the opportunity to design a bag with Coach, my feet haven't touched the ground!” Johnston (who’s American-born but now lives in London) said in a release. “Coach is the pinnacle of luxury and sophistication. Designing a bag with a brand that I have always held in such high regard has been the most nerve-racking, but also the most exhilarating, experience of my life. I couldn't be prouder or more pleased with what we have produced."

The bag was unveiled with a November 22 party at Coach’s London flagship store (41 New Bond Street), where it will retail for £495 (about $770, at current exchange rates).
