Stuart Vevers presented his Fall 2016 show for Coach 1941 during New York Fashion Week today. The collection played off of themes Vevers has been establishing since taking over the house in 2013, chief among them a youthful Americana, adding Western flourishes and a slight mod edge to what we’ve come to expect from him at Coach. Other takeaways? The starry front row and the gigantic ice sculpture T. rex outside. Yes, really.
Read on for eight talking points from the show while you wait for Chioma Nnadi’s review.
2. Outside, guests were welcomed to the venue by a giant T. rex ice sculpture.
3. The set evoked a basketball court in a high school gymnasium, but with chic caramel leather cushions on the benches in lieu of bleachers.
4. Fans will be happy to know that Vevers is continuing his outsize outerwear for Fall. This season offered up cozy shearlings and anoraks in neutral shades.
5. Good luck finding a person who is not enamored by the intarsia lightning bolt and skull sweater worn by Peyton Knight.
6. In keeping with an Americana theme, the collection included a fair number of varsity jackets with script Cs on them and the year the house was founded, 1941.
7. Mod A-line miniskirts in psychedelic prints provided a trippy counter to the house’s plaid blouses.
8. The gold rhinestone-studded loafers worn with several looks have already proved great Instagram fodder.
