Pre-Fall 18 Influencer Show: Coach

It was Snow White and wicked witches all the way at Stuart Vevers’ Pre-Fall show for Coach, tapping into cool Downtown chic, a touch of Stevie Nicks boho and Western influences along the way.

It’s Vevers’ signature amalgamation of inspirations that has pushed Coach to become one of fashion’s hottest brands, with collections that work hard to meet the needs of today’s cool influencer generation. For Pre-Fall, that layered mix-and-match look means cute satin collegiate jackets, washed patchwork denim and 70s-inspired handkerchief-hemmed crepe de chine dresses.

This latest Coach x Disney hook-up yielded some fun Snow White imagery on cosy intarsia knits, coupled with co-ordinated all-over prints and sweet appliques along with handbag gizmos spelling out words like ‘happy’ in reference to the Snow White dwarves.

There may have been nothing new in Vevers’ silhouettes – think cropped waist-grazing shearling jackets, mid-calf skirts or dresses, and high-rise boot-cut pants – but the playful print mixes and vivid orange, emerald and purple colour blocking looked fresh and of the moment.

Stand-out influencer pieces included Lurex intarsia knits, patchwork jeans and the signature lace-trimmed floral dresses, while pinstripe tailoring and immaculate tux pants upped the glam quota, happily contrasting with the collection’s casual Western-style studding and sporty striped, ribbed trims.

And as ever, accessories completed the look. Chain-handled leather bucket bags featuring handcrafted whip-stitch edging and authentic Western detailing hit the sweet spot, while covetable material-blocked laced cowboy boots looked best in shimmery pink metallic.
