SHOULD WE CALL IT A COMEBACK?
That is the million dollar question. Coach companions, fans and lovers across the globe are feverishly asking as of late—and they’re dying for answers! Well, ask no more, Coach suitors… Your answer’s right around the bend.
Recently, the enduring label has undergone a few changes. Their look, their feel and even their creative director are all new additions to the company. The South Yorkshire, England native, Stuart Vevers, assumed the position in 2013 and has been determined in making sure that the bright glimmer once held by the brand, soon returns.
His latest Fall 2016 Menswear collection, revealed in New York on Saturday, received rave reviews from most present. Vevers pulled the inspiration for this line from American music. The primary influence was late 70’s Hip-Hop and Bruce Springsteen, which were all clearly evident through many of the pieces.
From Kangol style bucket hats to plush, oversized leathers, all the way to rocker bandanas and vintage hardware accessories; this collection contained various surprises throughout that made onlookers gag with enthusiasm.
Hip sweaters, jackets, sneakers and accessories were the focus of this line, smoothly ignited by a large touch of culture. As each piece made its way down the runway, you were able to feel the vigor and the exhilaration of the New York City streets in the room. If asked to use one word to wrap up the show as a whole, that word would be: STUNNING (and that’s an understatement).
What do you think about the Coach 1941 Fall 2016 Menswear Collection? Is Coach finally making that comeback that so many of us have been waiting for? Or, do they need to consider taking the ideas of the new brand’s direction back to the drawing board?
The collaboration of music genres may sound like a “Clash of the Titans,” but in the realm of fashion, it’s a concept that has proved to be absolute genius! Vevers surely heard the voices of the millennial youth of today and was moved by their crusade. “A cool sweatshirt, a witty bag, and a pumped-up sneaker,” says Vevers—“that’s what appeals to me today, and to a younger guy. That could be luxury.” And that could be correct, Vevers! Good on you for the listen… and the fast delivery!
