In a hidden downtown light-filled loft in New York, bursts of colours and heritage lit up the Coach Fall 2020 Runway Show – presented by none other than the brand’s creative director, Stuart Vevers. He demonstrated a raw and joyful graphic expression of independence this season, with oversized statement outerwear and shearling pieced together freehand. The brand’s iconic Legacy Stripe was reintroduced with a youthful and playful twist. And the show emitted an 80s feel with colourful leather culottes and brightly coloured leather skirts with Vevers accentuating the primary colour palette.
The collection also features a collaboration with the estate of Jean-Michel Basquiat, with the artist’s sisters and stepmother in the audience, as well as his niece, Jessica Kelly, walking in the show. “We have always been fans of Coach. It’s such an iconic New York brand with really beautiful craftsmanship. To see this collection come together has been truly exciting. Coach has done a great job in capturing the texture, detail and energy of Jean-Michel’s work,” said Lisane Basquiat.
And at the end of the show, attendees were delighted with a performance from singer-songwriter Debbie Harry, who was accompanied by punk rock band The Coathangers, who played covers of songs from Harry’s iconic band, Blondie. On the FROW? Michael B Jordan, rapper Meghan thee Stallion and US Open champion Naomi Osaka.
