On a recent road trip, my husband and I were having a fashion debate of sorts. I wanted to get your opinion about this issue, as the hubby and I can’t seem to agree. I’m a fan of Coach’s signature line of handbags, but recently I’ve really started to admire Michael Kors handbangs as well. While Coach represents preppy, youthful and fun, I feel Kors’ aesthetic is more mature, chic, and professional-looking, especially classic pieces such as the Hamilton Bag. However, my husband contends that Coach has more prestige than the Michael Kors brand, based on quality and other factors, such as Kors’ involvement in product licensing (i.e. Fossil makes Kors watches). A quick Google search reveals we’re not the only ones to debate this point (Bloomberg, Purse Forum, Wedding Bee). What do you think?
Which brand is more prestigious: Coach or Michael Kors? Would love to read your comments!
