SLIDER

Stuart Vevers, I thank thee

I've discussed the sartorial horrors of my middle school days. One of the more tragic aspects was my love of anything Coach monogrammed. So when I personally think Coach, I think of the days when everyone and their mom (literally) were toting around bags plastered with the famous in-your-face c's.

Fast forward to 2014 where Coach has employed a new creative director, Stuart Vevers, who worked in debuting their first ready to wear line. And I'm in love. It's completely different from the bright colors and girly feel of the more recent campaigns, and instead they've veered towards a more rugged, truly "American" feel. According to Vevers, inspiration came from everything from the classic horror film The Shining to a Tennessee work-wear manufacturing factory. His research paid of since he's managed to pinpoint the essence of "Americana," even as an Englishmen. 

My favorite pieces of the collection involved the richest of reds-- found in the striking houndstooth print, as well as in oversized turtlenecks and a fuzzy looking duffle coat. Not to mention there's something to love about a designer interested in creating practical shoes.

  2. Ah The Shining inspiration is very evident, but oh my! The gloves, the cross-body bags, the shoes, the JACKETS, the colors -- everything is amazing. Thank you Stuart Vevers, indeed!

  9. Oh goodness...you just reminded me of my junior/middle/high school years. It was all about showing off those designer names...especially the C's. And I'm embarrassed to admit it...but I was one of them too lol! But damn...Coach has come a long way. Love their clothing line!

  10. I really like the collection but those models kind of scare me, especially the last one's legs :| red and black together are awesome though and I like the non-oversized pieces the most. booties too, definitely!
