Coach Catwalk Fashion Show NYC Womenswear FW2017
Stuart Vevers’ 25th collection for Coach focussed to his starting place, the shearling. He revisited some favorite sources of inspiration, such as Terrence Malick films and the Great Plains.
This time, though, he did a style mash-up by mixing prairie with Eighties hip-hop. The tomboy was also a reference point. But with the Smashing Pumpkins’ “1979” playing throughout, and a voiceover from “Badlands” spliced in, Vevers’ prairie-hip-hop combo took on a grunge feel.
Currently, outerwear is king. Shearlings were distressed with raw edges and floral and eagle embroideries all over. Vevers pushed the shearling idea even further with a dyed hoodie style with intarsia floral designs and a full-length topper coat that was dyed several shades of brown.
