Coach 1941 Fall 2019 - Runway Review
February 12, 2019
Flashy front row celebs aside, there was one inconspicuous special guest at Tuesday's Coach show: famed 1970s decorative arts guru Kaffe Fassett. His unique style served as a template for Stuart Vevers, now five years into his reign at Coach, in composing his fall collection. The resulting painterly florals served as a lovely ribbon that wound itself through the entire collection, brightening everything from sturdy parkas and Lurex sweaters to lacy frocks and charming needlepoint dresses.
Full-on layering was the name of the game at Coach, where Vevers's take for making opposites attract were awfully appealing in their youthful and fresh proportions. Crombie coats were a great addition, complementing woolen bombers and cardigans -- many of them rendered following the brand's new, fur-free mantra. From the runway onto the red carpet, Coach has been amping up its visibility, having dressed Grammy Award-winning soul singer H.E.R. in custom looks for the Grammys.
