Remembering Lillian Cahn, Creator Of The Coach Handbag

Cahn's inspiration for the high-end leather totes came from her experience delivering noodles during the Depression. "One of her suggestions early on was: Why can't we make a shopping bag, but out of leather?" recalls her husband, Miles Cahn. Lillian Cahn died March 4 at age 89.
