When the Madison Collection from Coach made their debut, they became the premium, most expensive line, at the time from Coach’s high-end collections. With the Madison Collection, however, nothing was compromised when it came to quality. This stunning Madison Regis Style #4405 is a sterling example.
The specially treated leathers on Madison handbags and accessories were similar to Chanel’s Caviar leather. The quality didn’t stop there. All Madison’s were handmade in Coach’s “E” plant in Italy as were their predecessors, the Dakota Collection, the Gramercy Collection, the Bridle Collection and some from the Sheridan and Sonoma Collection. Each collection had their distinctive differences which set them apart and rivaled the top designers around the world.
The Madison Collection was made from a fine, Caviar Pebbled leather. The Dakotas were a Full-Grained Leather having a cross-grained pattern with form, and the Sheridan’s have the softer pebbled leather. The Gramercy Collection had the finer Cross-Grain pattern resembling Epi leather. The Bridle Collection had Pigskin adornment on the thicker Bridle leather. These special perpetual treatments these collections shared were very expensive resulting in models from these collections lasting far longer than regular leather items.
The Madison Collection models were high end and unique. None are exactly the same. Being hand-made, each will have its own uniqueness typical with custom craftsmanship. Today, they are coveted the world over. Look closely at this gem and you will see why.
This breathtaking example from the Madison Collection is the Regis. Coach named many of the models after cities in Europe and the U.K.
This Regis has the original serial numbers 3191-009 which shows this is one of the very early models. It is also from the private collection and it is in pristine condition inside and out.
Resplendent in the luxurious color of Black, it is pure elegance. The leathers have so much depth and shine, you can see light reflections in the pictures.
Open the zipper to see the flawless, bronze Faille fabric lining. This is a very spacious Coach.
The main compartment is all fabric lined as well. There is a single zippered security pocket with the creed. The creed is on matching leather.
On the outside, there is a full-length pocket and even that pocket has the Bronze fabric lining. The holders for the strap intricately styled and crafted.
The strap itself is of the same thickness. It is supple, spotlessly clean with no darkening. As you look at the pictures, you can see the shine from the edging. The topstitching is Black and it is clean throughout.
The original hang-tag is present on the brass chain. The hang-tags found on Madison’s are also perpetually treated. Their hang-tags are larger than regular Coach hang-tags and is made from the same Caviar leather. For a Madison to be complete, the hang-tag must match the trim.
