Coach transported everyone to the future as models flocked into a dark arena full of metal scraps, rusted cars, and a dinosaur made out of iron-rusted metals that took the center stage.
Inspired by a trip to Santa Fe and the Ghost ranch retreat where American artist Georgia O’Keeffe painted some of her most iconic work, Coach created a collection portraying the probable decay of America.
According to the Guardian, Coach’s Creative Director Stuart Vevers explained that the collection was all about “scavenging and salvaging.” Showcasing their own edgy twist in scavenging the vintage prairie dress, there were three trends that emerged during the post-apocalyptic presentation:
Soft leather jumpsuits, denim dresses, maxis, and sweaters came out the runway in patchwork detailing showing the true versatility of leather and denim. The patchwork finish allows everyone to play with their look as they can dress it up or dress down depending on their mood or the weather.
Bias Cut Dresses
As the fresh spring air will come and the temperature will rise, Vevers opted to incorporate the bias cut to the sheer black dresses, ruffled nude dresses, and of course, to the vintage prairies giving a better airflow and ease as you stroll the park. Its bias cut technique also helps accentuate the body’s lines and curves.
Coach added more depth into its take on their jackets as the brand highlighted its fringe detailing. Providing an American point-of-view based on the wild west, the fringe jacket allows Coach to veer away from the traditional luxurious European feel.
