Coach 1941 Fall 2018 - Runway Review
February 13, 2018
Off into the woods we go. Creative director Stuart Vever set the tone for his Coach 1941 show with a dimly lit forest runway, smoke hovering ominously above large piles of autumn leaves. Models emerged from out of said forest like a troop of chic girl scouts. Parading through old-school televisions strewn across the set, the prairie vibe, what with their pretty ruffled hemlines sweeping the floor, set a nice tone and direction for the show.
Utilizing all the aspects that have made Coach popular -- tassels, braiding, trinkets -- Vevers applied them to evening. The results were beautiful. Winter floral prints and paisley patterns were a loving antidote to the trend of harsh streetwear, while the long-sleeved, high-neck silhouettes were light to the touch and felt fresh.
