I do like the way the Coach bag looks over the MK.http://www.businessinsider.com/this-coach-tote-looks-eerily-familiar-2013-2
Don't know if this was already posted or not, but there was an article about how the saffiano tote is similar to a MK tote.
I agree. While I probably won't get either, I like the Coach one better. I like the piece along the bottom, which makes it appear sturdier and the vertical seams, which seem to square off the sides more. I'm not interested in it because I don't like the really skinny handles and it is too plain for my taste.How many different ways can that tote be made? They are all going to be similar.
The Coach tote has more seams and they are in different locations than the MK tote, don't know how they could have made it any more different. Much nicer than the MK tote, IMHO, since the MK tote is so simple.
I should add that I love my MK bags. There are some things MK does better, like inside pockets. I love more of the Coach styles.I like the coach tote better. But I did switch teams for the Candance vs Selma war. I liked the MK bag better. I cross shop these two brands often.
This is why I purchased the Coach one. The lack of the zipper in the MK one. I know its the same bag but all companies are doing this now so I dont know why this merits an article. I think the MK one is just like the LV neverful just minus the side cinches.Isn't another big difference that the mk tote has either no closure or a button snap while the coach tote zips closed? (I could be wrong though). If that's the case, then it's a significant difference IMO.
Why does it merits an article? All large companies have a publicity department whose job is to make sure the company gets mentioned in the news. A news article that brings attention to the company is much more valuable than advertising because people believe it is credible and unbiased. Coach's publicity department probably sent out a press release announcing their Saffiano totes and some reporter, who didn't have anything better to write, wrote this article, which helps both Coach and MK, and probably even Prada. Like they say in the business, there is no thing as bad publicity.This is why I purchased the Coach one. The lack of the zipper in the MK one.
