It's About Time You Joined the Coach Club This Autumn
Picture this: you're hanging with Dorothy in Tornado Alley right before the storm hits — then a bunch of rock chick models roll in. That was Stuart Vevers's setting for Autumn 2017 (which is different to last season, when his cool kids hung around a car pileup), but this collection is so obviously elevated.
Floral puffers with shearling collars will replace the must-have biker coats and varsity jackets Coach is so famous for (You've seen them on Emma Roberts and new face of the brand, Selena Gomez, who both sat front row). Meanwhile, top handle bags will make it onto the wish lists of ladies who refuse to forget their youth. The long, pouch-like shape instantly conjures images of our old pencil cases, after all.
Not to be missed are the baseball caps that are slightly oversized and go just as well with the patched and personalised outerwear as they do with romantic ruffled dresses. Pair the whole lineup with thick-soled sneaker boots and you, too, can stomp around all day to the tune of "1979" by the Smashing Pumpkins — if you remembered your earbuds.
