Stuart Vevers has always explored Americana themes at @coach 1941, and whether he ventured to prairie fields or the Wild West, New York was always the starting point. For spring/summer 2018, he captured the hustle and bustle of the city through glitter dresses worthy of a night out at Studio54 and Keith Haring drawings on sweaters and handbags .

The late Keith Haring’s illustrations turned up as leitmotif, peppered throughout the collection as graphic patches on denim jackets and bags, or down the front of sequinned dresses.
The tea dress has become a staple offering since Vevers took over the reins at Coach, but for spring he switched things up a little and proposed lace slip dresses or embellished sheer versions that showed some skin. Elsewhere, varsity bomber jackets and shearling jackets rounded up the covetable collection.
