One year on after Stuart Vevers has taken the helm as creative director of Coach, we have seen more element of British rock and grunge chic in this New York based fashion label.

Coach Singapore hosted a press preview for their upcoming Fall/Winter collection. No surprise when you see the photo wall made of shearling. Remember last Fall’s shearling bags and shoes from Mr Vevers’ debut collection for Coach?

More shearling bags this Fall, in contrasting white!

One of the signature prints (yes, prints!) this season is the Mount Plaid. The bold red and black print that exemplifies the spirit of 90s grunge. It adds some edge and attitude to the classic silhouettes of Coach’s bags.

The next signature print is aptly named “Wild Beast“. I find this print somewhat a breakthrough for Coach to attract the younger, edgier crowd. Building on the success of the Coach x Baseman collection this Spring, the print has been extended to a complete lifestyle collection for both women and men – from bags, clothing to footwear!

Aside from signature prints, this Fall see an evolution of a Spring design. The Swagger family now has a sleek turn-lock design that latches on Coach’s unique heritage during Bonnie Cashin’s era.

This year, Stuart Vevers also launched more ready to wear pieces that features biker chic elements such as stars, stripes and bandana prints.

Thoughts on the revamped Coach collection? What do you like or dislike from the designs? I like the new design elements and edgier look of Coach now but I hope that Mr Vevers could infuse some signature elements from Coach’s archives in his designs to retain the brand’s rich heritage.
