Bonnie Cashin

Coach's new line inspired by ready-to-wear pioneer (and former Coach designer) Bonnie Cashin has me fawning over her vintage pieces.

Cashin designs on the cover of Vogue in 1956
How chic is this? Vogue, April 1950
Vogue, August 1968

Her classic line for Coach.  It is so pared-down and preppy, and the leather only looks better with use.  
There are a number of great options on eBay at really low prices.

A few more classic looks from Cashin:
