Runway looks come in a variety of styles — some sensationally outlandish for the stage while others are designed for sophisticated soirees. However, for wearable IRL (in-real-life) outfits with a stylish twist, look no further than the latest collection by Coach, which features snazzy yet functional fashion for day-to-day excursions.
Entitled Coach Forever Season Two, Coach’s creative director Stuart Vevers says it is named so “because Forever is, by definition, something that continues.” He continues: “The Fall/Winter 2021 collection is inspired by what we’ve learnt and where we are going. This season, we imagine differently; a continuing statement about layers of time—past, present and future. It’s about finding charm in the everyday, the extraordinary in the ordinary and the joy of collective nostalgia.”
Using layers to reflect depth
Empowered by a vision where indoor and outdoor worlds tangibly intertwine, the vibrant new collection features layered and loose ensembles that offer a modern take on cool digs while allowing for comfort and flexibility.
Unafraid to draw on a mixed-season melange, consummate pairings in this season’s wardrobe showcase what might have seemed impossible at first: PJ-looking plaid pants, long johns, flowy skirts, sweet dresses and slip-on shoes are accentuated with plush shearling coats and leather jackets made in collaboration with the heritage American outerwear brand Schott.
“Coach Forever Season Two celebrates the sense of possibility and joy found in connection,” explains Vever, whose vision for the collection speaks to real-life dressing and engages a more responsible approach.
Go Rogue with the free spirit in you
In addition to apparel, The Coach Forever Season Two collection also includes the House’s new Tate and Soft Tabby bags, Hitch Backpack as well as a creative reimagination of its iconic Rogue bag.
Featuring new motifs and autumn hues, the Rogue bag is getting a fresh face for the fall. This stylish carryall comes in a variety of textures and sizes, including the newly updated Rogue Tote, which is made in glovetanned pebble leather in an oversized silhouette.
As fashionable as it is functional, the Rogue 25 is redesigned to be a more compact version of the original and made 20 percent lighter so you can carry it with you everywhere with ease.
Besides the Rogue 25, there are also two other sizes available: Rogue 39 and mini-sized Rogue 17. Take your pick of patterns from a textured Jacquard fabric with vintage embroidery added to upwoven leather.
As per its traditions in craftsmanship, this luxury brand—which first started off as a family-run workshop of six leather artisans—still finishes its premium leathers and fabrics by hand.
Being real with friends
Having made its mark since its founding in 1941, Coach is the global fashion house where you can count on ready-to-wear apparel as well as an array of accessories to enhance your look.
No surprise that even celebrities are enthusiastically on board, with a star-studded cast featured in Coach’s Fall/Winter 2021 global campaign aptly called “With Friends”. We’re talking about famous faces such as Jennifer Lopez, Michael B. Jordan, Koki and Jeremy Lin.
“We want to tell a story about friendship and the way our loved ones inspire, support and shape us, and the excitement we feel about spending time together again,” explains Vever.
For their virtual live presentation “Coach TV” on Instagram and other social channels, there are many more Coach’s friends, including Kaia Gerber, Paloma Elsesser, Megan Thee Stallion, Kiko Mizuhara, Cole Sprouse, Xiao Wen Ju, Hari Nef, Binx Walton, Jon Batiste, Cordae, Rickey Thompson, Tavi Gevinson, Wisdom Kaye, Kim Gordon, Coco Gordon Moore, KJ Apa, Julia Nobis, HyunA, Dawn, Ma Zhe and Bob the Drag Queen—and music by Blondie.
“When I’m with my friends, the possibilities are endless—it’s encouraging, optimistic and spontaneous,” says J. Lo.
Jordan agrees: “Being amongst friends means being around people you are comfortable with and whom you can be yourself with, grow with, be creative with. It’s about being in an environment where you can be authentic and thrive.”
Inspired by authenticity, Coach clads you in fashion that is designed to last, so you can always be the truest form of yourself.
