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 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 rivalled the top designers around the world.
The original Madison Collection was made from a fine, Caviar Pebbled leather that was specially treated. 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 beautiful and rare Madison and you will see why.
This breathtaking example from the Madison Collection is the Tuxedo Convertible Evening Clutch Model 4415. Coach named many of the models after cities in Europe and the U.K.
This Tuxedo has the registration/model numbers G5E-4415. It is also from the private collection and it is in pristine condition inside and out. It also comes with the original dust cover.
Resplendent in the luxurious colour of Marine, it is pure elegance. The leathers have so much depth and shine, you can see light reflections in the pictures.
Open the kiss-snap to see the flawless, Bronze Faille fabric lining. This is a very unique Coach. Then, you will see the creed and the chain on the swinging holders resting inside. Not one mark or stain inside.
On the outside, when the chain is deployed, the frame has two recesses to keep it from damaging the frame. The chain, which is the original; gleams like a golden mirror and the frame is made of beautifully brushed brass. It is clean shows exceptionally well with one tiny, insignificant mark that can be polished away.
This Tuxedo is the perfect Convertible as when the chain is inside, you will have one of the finest Evening Clutches to be found. When wearing it as a clutch, do stow the chain inside as you would not want to misplace or even worse, to lose it as that would be absolutely dreadful.
The Caviar leather is remarkable. It is supple, clean and the colour is even throughout with no scuffs or signs of wear. Looking closely at the pictures, you can see the shine from the edging.
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.
This Madison Tuxedo is a Coach that is very hard to find in any condition and it is a genuine collectable. No doubt, this Coach shows only the best of care, exceptionally careful use, and looks fabulous. The leathers are soft with form and even in colour.
This is one Coach that when you see and feel it, you will love it and what’s more, no one will have one like it. This Tuxedo has a luxurious look that sets it apart from anything else.
