This gorgeous vintage Coach is from one of the rarest, milestone collections. This is an original Coach Cassidy from the Dakota Collection made in Italy. The top-of-the line Dakota Collection was Coach’s first collection to be made in Italy. These were before the Sheridan and the Madison Collections and they were very expensive.
The Dakotas are very distinctive as the leather has a cross-grained pattern and is specially treated to last far longer than glove-tanned cowhide. The colors for Dakotas were different from any other line from Coach. Dakotas also have a Tan pigskin pocket inside ( A Dakota exclusive) and no registration/serial numbers on the creed. Even the hang-tags, zipper pulls, and slides were unique to this collection. The British Tan leather trim is of such a good quality that it achieves a rich patina that looks luxurious.
Made for only a couple of seasons, models from the Dakota Collection today are seldom seen, especially like this Cassidy. This Cassidy is from a private collection and it is in excellent condition.
In the beautiful color of Rouge, it is trimmed in British Tan. Open the flap to see a clean, odor-free interior. It has a few ink marks inside bottom as seen in the pictures. They are minor and did not bleed through. There is a single zippered pocket with the creed. It is a genuine Italian Coach.
On the back is a full length slip pocket and it is clean as well. The leathers are rich and full of color and the British Tan trim has attained be beautiful, natural patina. The thick, long strap is supple and still has the edging from new. The solid brass metalwork is clean and tarnish free. As can be seen, models from the Dakota Collection are different than any other Coach and today, they are highly collectible.
The original hang-tag is present on the solid brass chain.
The equestrian styling of this Cassidy is unique and it will bring many looks and compliments.
It measures in at 8”L x 7 ½ “H x 3”D and the adjustable strap is 48” long or 24” drop from your shoulder. A great Coach to wear cross-body.
