Coach gave us big dresses and banging bags in the Big Apple for its Fall/Winter 2024 show. Taking place in the James B. Duke House, the New York brand showed us its new take on luxury from within the walls of the French-inspired mansion. 

Coach’s latest offering saw Creative Director Stuart Vevers celebrate ten years at the helm by reimagining the House’s heritage for the next generation of fashionistas. Out of the block, we saw looks that were as at home at James B. Duke House as Dimes Square, seen in a flowing, bow-filled layered pink skirt which bounced down the runway, closely followed by a muted lilac iteration. It was paired with a sleek sleeveless black top and biker boots accented with buckle detailing.

The bows continued across oversized pink sweaters, to the front of emerald green dresses and on the vamp of ballet flats, elevating city-ready essentials with some girl-coded goodness. 

Later looks saw models don double-breasted jackets with navy hoodies, a colour-clashing that only the coolest of New Yorkers could pull off. Models doubled up on bags, carrying the Coach Empire Carryall, accented with a comically large red apple, and Empire State keychain. In the same hand, models clutched the Times Square Tabby bag and a New York Yankees baseball cap, channelling an effortless pairing of luxury and sportswear that felt as New York as Dollar Slices and dissing tourists. Rugged denim featured patched detailing and was ready for any questionable subway encounter, and up top, the workwear-heavy look was softened with further ruched bow detailing. 

Long-length suiting was seen throughout, as shirt sleeves extended from jackets, enveloping wearers’ hands and loosening the uniform rigidity usually associated with the menswear staple. Leather trench coats were seen in pastel pink, light brown, and olive, which overlayed a cotton trench underneath. The covered-up coolness was stripped back as car coats took over, closely followed by Americana-coded tasselled suede jackets. 

Vevers found inspiration in the city as a “setting for love stories, old and new, the tension between the romantic and picturesque and the real and spontaneous that is unique here. Embracing and celebrating love-worn textures and repurposed materials is critical to this vision. For us, it’s about finding joy and purpose in being present and championing the way the next generation is redefining heritage in their own way.” 

For Fall/Winter 2024, Coach continued its future-focused approach to luxury, where its long-lasting leather goods were married with a carefully crafted ready-to-wear offering brimming with Big Apple energy.
