Unless you have been living under a rock you probably know by now, the seventies are enjoying a huge revival when it comes to fashion this spring and next fall. The seventies were also an important time for Coach. American sportswear pioneer Bonnie Cashin, designed for the leatherwear manufacturer during that time and the brand launched several iconic designs. According to WWD, Coach is now reissuing five of the classic handbags, which will be sold exclusively on Net-a-porter from June 15.

“The Coach designs from this era were seminal in defining our approach to great American style,” said Reed Krakoff, president and executive creative director for Coach. “Heritage is our hallmark, so we’re pleased to reintroduce these iconic bags.”

As of today, Net-a-porter has put up a designated landing page for the Coach handbags where consumers can preregister for the sale when it goes live.

Prices range from $298 for a shoulder purse to $498 for a field bag. There’s also a Madison satchel for $358, Stewardess bag, $358 and duffle, $398.

Too bad I got rid of my classic Coach bags years ago. Who knew?
