Under Stuart Vevers‘ creative direction, Coach has made true hits that are mined from its extensive archives. In the case of the Tabby — a favorite of the fashion crowd and TikTok — the silhouette borrows from a design from the ’70s, adding an extra element of plush.

If I’m being honest, I’ve had my heart set on this ombre Tabby ever since I first spotted it at the Coach Fifth Avenue store a year ago. The brand generously gifted it to me, and I get the hype even more now: Every time I step out with my Tabby, I receive tons of compliments. Not only is it a super sleek and luxurious-looking bag, but it also feels like I’m carrying what can double as a mini pillow. Even the tag is plushy. You can carry it with a short handle or add a shoulder strap to make it a crossbody; the petite version is small, but with enough room to fit the essentials (yes, even a phone). It’s fun and of-the-moment, but feels like it could live in your closet for a long time; it’s also perfect for a range of events, whether it’s the upcoming holiday parties or a casual brunch.

Personally, I like the unexpected ombre shade. However, if you want something more classic, it comes in a range of colors, including black and ivory. (Though, don’t sleep on the pistachio.) For those feeling extra bold, there’s even the seasonally-appropriate shearling Tabby.
