Images c/o Coach
You have to hand it to Coach - things have been turbulent financially for the past few years, but that hasn't prevented them from pulling out all the stops with their new hit Ready-to-Wear collections. Migrating from presentation territory to the runway for the first time, the heritage American brand showed SS16 in a glass showspace on the iconic High Line, creating an idyllic countryside landscape in the midst of New York City.
This set the tone for the collection, which married elements of dreamy patchwork and florals from the plains with contemporary urban additions - namely, leather jackets and gilets. We definitely felt the 70s influence permeate the accessories as well as the distinctly liberated attitude that the label brought out in the clothes.
Coach sought to reflect the environmental influence of the textures in their natural state - not too polished or perfect, but maintaining authenticity and 'imperfections that give character.' This seems to be a movement taking the fashion industry by storm at the minute, and if Coach has anything to do with it, we're sure that it's bound for the mainstay.
