Let’s Chat About The Coach Lori Shoulder Bag

Hello friends! Today I want to chat about the brand new bag from Coach, it’s the Coach Lori bag. This was literally released a few days ago, so recent I haven’t even seen it in the flesh yet, but I wanted to chat about it because it’s so beautiful and I’m so excited it’s been added into the collection! This bag comes in five different colour ways, 4 in leather and 1 on the signature coated canvas. This bag comes in one size and is the perfect hobo style shoulder bag. It’s perfect for moms, weekends, work and for anyone who carries a lot in their bags and they like to shove it all in and throw it over their shoulder. It’s beautiful, appears to be stunning quality and it’s casual. Exactly what we want right now; easy and chic!

How To Style The Coach Lori Shoulder Bag

The Coach Lori Shoulder bag is the perfect casual bag. It’s beautiful Coach quality and leather, so it’s a real ‘take anywhere bag’ but also effortlessly chic. For me, it’s an every day bag; wear to lunch, the office, the supermarket, shopping, weekend day trips or wherever the day takes you. It’s easy and effortless and never feels too much or too little. Personally, I would wear this bag with everything and anything, if I was nipping out the house in leggings and a jumper to run errands, it wouldn’t look too much, but similarly, it would be perfect for a fancy lunch restaurant with friends. The ultimate Coach Lori bag outfit would probably be something as simple, effortless and chic as the bag itself, like your favourite jeans and a white button down blouse and a hint of jewellery, but if you wanted to make it a little more fashionnnnn you could pair it with super cool sunglasses and a 70’s style tent maxi dress. When you amp up the natural 70’s vibe of this bag, it becomes a lot cooler, when you keep it simple, it’s more elegant and timeless.

What fits inside the Coach Lori Bag

The Coach Lori bag is a nice big hobo bag, so it fits a really generous amount inside. It’s around 12 x 10 inches, so it really fits what you want inside, within reason; small laptop? You got it, lunch? No problem! Kids toys? In the bag! Personally I would use it for my small laptop, snacks, phone charger, camera, purse, phone, keys and make up and probably still have a little room left over. Plus it has nice sized straps which mean it should be comfortable to carry!


The Lori bag is a little like the Rogue bag where it has really minimal branding. It has the Coach luggage tag and the Coach brass C tag hanging from it, but other than that, it’s pretty free of branding, especially since it has no Coach stamped into the leather. Oh and both the luggage tag and the C charm can easily be removed. Also, the brass hardware has a very subtle Coach stamp on it, but you wouldn’t notice it. Personally, I love the lack of branding, I think the quality of the leather speaks volumes of the bags quality, so you don’t need logos splashed all over the bag.

Coach Lori Bag Price

The Coach Lori bag is £395, which is the same price as bags like Soft Tabby Shoulder bag, the Pillow Tabby Bag and the Tabby Top Handle bag. It’s slightly more money than the Willow bucket bag, but in my opinion it’s a nicer quality leather and more detailed and luxe. However, it’s way less than the Alie bag and the Beat bag. Personally, I think the Lori bag is a really fair price. It reminds me of a cross between the Coach Rogue bag – my all time favourite bag, and the Coach beat bag – because of it’s embellishments. It’s also worth noting it’s less money than both of these bags too!

How much does a Coach bag cost? Generally speaking a Coach bag is around £300 to £500.

Is Coach a good brand?

Yes, Coach is a great brand. Their bags are wonderful quality and really affordable prices. Their bags last for years and they are designed to be timeless and elegant. Also, if you ever decide you no longer wear your Coach bag, then remember you can always sell them on and make a big chunk back.

Is Coach a good perfume brand?

Here is something I get asked a lot, Is Coach a good perfume brand? Well, that depends on your point of view! If you are looking for something vintage and edgy, like the clothes from Coach, then no. However, if you love pretty fruity-floral fragrances then Coach perfumes do not disappoint.

Coach Lori V’s Coach Willow bag

As much as I love the Coach Willow bag, I have to admit, the Lori handbag is an upgrade! It’s a little more fashion and design-led, plus it’s a higher quality leather and also slightly more subtle in terms of branding. Personally, the Lori get’s my vote and for just a little more cash, I think it’s a better buy which will age far more beautifully. Which is your fave?

Coach Lori Shoulder Bag Review

OK!  So let’s do a bit of a Coach Lori Shoulder bag review!! First up! I fully admit I haven’t seen this bag in the flesh, however, I have a LOT of Coach bags and I know the quality and I know the craftsmanship, plus I have other bags in this exact leather. First up, the Coach Lori bag is made from the Pebble leather which is my absolute favourite! It’s thick, beautiful quality and has a beautiful grain. I LOVE this leather, it’s the same as what they use for the Rogue bag and the soft tabby bag, it’s a beautiful leather and in my opinion, it’s the crown jewel in the Coach collection. It’s the best!!!

Price wise, I think the Coach Lori bag is a really fair and reasonable price. I think £395 is really fair and reasonable and if you get 10% off, it makes it just over £350 which is amazing. Especially with the quality of the grainy leather… SO GOOD! Personally, I wouldn’t advise going for the signature canvas Lori, as much as I love the signature canvas, it just doesn’t compare to the stunning grainy pebble leather. I would even go as far to say I think the signature canvas bag should be cheaper… but it’s not!

Practicality wise, the Coach Lori bag has a back zipped slip pocket, an internal slip pocket, two generous side slip pockets and a main central section which zips up. It has a fabric lining, minimal hardware and branding which hopefully keeps the weight of the bag down and the leather straps are adjustable. One thing that is worth noting about this bag is that the straps are adjustable, but unlike other Coach bags, it only has one set of straps. There isn’t multiple ways to carry this bag, just over your shoulder or in the crock of your arm, but it can’t be made into a cross body which a lot of them can. But to be honest, I think this is a shoulder bag, not a cross body bag so, that doesn’t bother me.

Finally, the Coach Lori handbag is a bit of a game changer. It’s a bag we all needed them into introduce, it’s a more study, luxe, design-led slouchy hobo bag and it’s really beautiful, stunning leather and super chic and practical. If you are a mum, work in an office or just generally carry a lot around with you, then you need this bag!!!
