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 conceded when it came to quality. This stunning Madison is the Gracie Style #4413 and it is a superb example. Coach named many models of the Madison Collection after cities in Europe and the U.K.
The specially treated leathers on Madison handbags and accessories were comparable to Chanel’s Caviar leather. The quality did not 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 variances which set them apart and rivalled 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 quite 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 emblematic 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 Gracie is personal in size which when you stow the strap and put on the gloves, it can transform into one of the most beautiful Evening Bags you will ever see. Or, you can carry the Gracie contentedly on your shoulder. But do not be hoodwinked by its humble size, the Gracie can carry your smartphone and your necessities with ease.
The Gracie has the registration/model numbers L5E-4413. It is also from the private collection and it is in excellent condition inside and out.
Resplendent in the luxurious colour 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 faultless, bronze Faille fabric lining. 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. The dust on the creed from the photoshoot wiped away.
On the outside, there is the padded handle that allows just enough drop so you can effortlessly carry this Gracie on the crook of your arm as an Evening Bag. The snap holders for the strap are under the flap so if desired, you can remove the strap for cleaning. However, should you need to remove the strap, do store it inside as to lose it would be absolutely dreadful.
In addition, there is a slip pocket on the back and it is immaculate as well.
As you look at the pictures, you can see the shine from all over this Gracie, a true testament to the care this gem received.
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.
