Coach 1941 Fall 2020 - Runway Review
February 12, 2020
That quintessential New York energy has always been a pillar for Stuart Vevers since joining Coach 1941 as creative director. That 1980s vibe showed itself in the many silhouettes shown on the runway: oversized Crombies and trench coats layered and styled with chunky socks and pointy loafers a la Madonna; leather culottes and snap-front midiskirts and graphic day dresses that swung just so. The work of celebrated downtown artist Jean-Michel Basquiat also showed itself throughout the collection -- found on an oversized leather trench, a blanket-style wool scarf and a new, structured mini box bag. To round out the references, Eighties icon Debbie Harry closed the show clad in her black shades and a sweater printed with Basquiat's signature brushstrokes, belting out "Dreaming."
