New Yorkers know that you can get a great bagel at Zabar’s. And some great smoked fish, olives and cheeses. What you might not know is that as part of Coach’s new Spring Collection, you can pick up some Zabar’s swag and represent the neighborhood in style.
“Paying tribute to the effortless cool of our hometown,” these pieces feature the Zabar’s logo and of course, one of their famous bagels with cream cheese. Based on the original design by Bonnie Cashin in 1969, New York designer and Creative Director Stuart Vevers has created the Zabar’s “Cashin Carry” leather tote, a perfect combination of the classic Zabar’s reusable tote and the chic design of the luxury fashion house. A large part of Vevers’ creative vision is a “…look that is grounded in the authentic attitude of New York.” He continues to express this through pieces like the Zabar’s sweater and Zabar’s t-shirt, part of a collection Coach calls “a love letter to New York City.”
These Upper West Side inspired items are available online on Coach’s website and at Coach stores. But if they’re out of your spring-time budget, you can always visit the family-owned store (2245 Broadway @ 80th Street) and pick up a reusable tote filled with delicious goodies.
This is not Zabar’s first foray into the fashion world; in March 2021, the long-time grocer partnered with Vans to create shoes and t-shirts with its logo alongside some of its most popular items (bagels, coffee, rugelach, and a black and white cookie).
