The new Coach Fall 2017 Men’s Collection is taking us back in time! Anyone that loves jackets and patterns will love this season’s work. Creative director Stuart Vevers thought outside the box for these looks. Most of the jackets are of leather material. Many of the pants and shirts paired with the jackets are of checkered patterns. The jacket types consist of biker and varsity jackets, M-65 parkas, with almost all having embroidered patches. Also, statement Tees are a part of the collection which collaborates nicely with the style of jackets used.
Bold Jackets and Colors
Many of the jackets and coats have a wool trimming while the pant legs stop at the ankle mark. The shoes worn during the fashion show consisted of bold, neutral colors. Burgundy, brown, and beige were the main colors used for the lace up shoes. Vevers is inspired by old school and hip-hop which both were included in this Coach runway show. To explain why he used shearling, Vevers stated “Shearling has a different attitude to fur. It’s younger, it’s more comforting. It’s fun.”
Western Ready-to-Wear Coach
All things considered, using nostalgic was a smart move on Vevers part as a creative director. Bringing back looks from the past is extremely popular these days. Of course, the looks are Western inspired. Although extreme designs are interesting to the eye, they are not always relatable to the consumer. With this Coach collection being ready-to-wear, many people will be easily drawn to the collection. The outwear definitely took control of the looks for this collection, which is clever. The weather is going to cool off and jackets are going to become the main pieces.
