Coach Spring 2020
About the collection: “Stuart Vevers is not shy about his obsession with Americana. In his six years at Coach, the British designer has looked mostly toward the West and the Great Plains for inspiration, bringing prairie dressing and a late ’60s vintage charm to the leather goods brand. This season Vevers switched things up, steering the Coach aesthetic toward a new direction entirely. And with the runway set up along the High Line in midtown this afternoon, Vevers was clearly in a New York state of mind.
As the Human League blasted out of speakers over 11th Avenue, the starting point for the new collection was loud and clear: ’80s New York. After the best-selling moto jackets, shearling coats, and puffers of seasons past, the cherry red leather trenchcoat that opened the show offered a cool new outerwear proposition and came in all manner of New Wave–inflected bright colors. Vevers usually adds an artistic note to his clothes, and this season he partnered with the estate of Richard Bernstein, the artist behind Interview magazine’s distinctive illustrated covers.” (For more go to VOGUE.com)
