Even if you live in a place where it’ll be hot and sticky outside for another month, there’s no denying that fall is on its way, at least in stores. Coach is the latest brand to get its autumn assortment in stock, and that means a whole bunch of new Swagger bags, plus some debut styles we think are well worth a look.
Coach Handbags and Purses
If you’ve been following Coach recently, you’re bound to have seen its adorable #coachpups campaign featuring Lady Gaga‘s frenchie Miss Asia Kinney, Ariana Grande‘s pup Toulouse, and Miranda Kerr‘s yorkie Frankie. The love people have for their pets is undeniable, and seeing Coach feature dogs instead of people is an adorable move for the brand.
I’ve always been fond of animal prints, but traditionally they skew more toward old-school glamor than my own personal style, which is more modern and casual. With the brand new Coach Wild Beast collection, artist Gary Baseman has created an animal print for the next generation.
At first blush, a luxury accessories brand and a beloved children’s comic make strange bedfellows, but that’s part of the reason the first Coach x Peanuts collaboration sold out so quickly; the unexpected combination was light and fun. It’s always a nice change of pace when fashion doesn’t take itself so seriously, and the second round of Coach x Peanuts bags and accessories, available now, are just as much fun as their popular predecessors.
Over the past several seasons, Coach has undergone a transformation with Stuart Vevers at the helm while still keeping true to the core elements of the brand, and if you ask me, the brand has done a fabulous job. Coach’s latest new bag has everyone buzzing, and not just because it’s a good bag–there’s also brilliant campaign behind it.
Fashion shows are nice, but nothing beats getting to see new handbags up close; touching something, opening it up and putting it on your arm are the best ways to evaluate a collection. Luckily, we got to do just that yesterday with Coach’s Fall 2015 bags (and coats–just wait until you see the coats), and we think you’ll be just as excited about this collection as we are.
The invite to the Coach Fall 2015 fashion week show alluded to a sense of rebellion, with skulls and lightning bolts scattered on the front. Stuart Vevers set the stage for the collection against a barren winter backdrop, alongside train track pillars.
I’ve been excited for Coach’s Spring 2015 handbags to arrive ever since I saw them at the brand’s runway show back in September; the collection felt modern and light-hearted, like it could bridge the gap between the brand’s longtime fans and the fashion-forward audience that Coach hopes to attract.
With Stuart Vevers at the helm, Coach is taking great strides in a new direction. A couple weeks ago, Coach hosted its Fall 2015 menswear presentation in London, and Vevers showcased a relaxed, effortless collection.
While Coach under Vevers offers a different direction than many have grown to expect from the brand, his collections so far have featured remixes of American originals with a personal spin.
