Get ready for the resurgence of the new Coach – where leather, creativity and craftsmanship meet again à la 1941 – this time with a refreshing touch that is both classic and modern at the same time.
To celebrate its 75th birthday this year, Coach debuted their ‘Coach 1941’ Spring Summer 2016 collection with its first-ever runway show in New York. We wish we were there, mostly because we wanted a piece of the sartorial action. So imagine our glee when the collection hit our local stores. Because if there’s one thing we love about Coach, it’s the American brand’s strong hold in the leather goods and accessories department. The story began in 1941, but it is most certainly not ending anytime soon!
While Coach 1941’s Spring Summer 2016 is 100% Americana-inspired to celebrate the brand’s heritage, it is also 100% made for wherever you are. Whether you’re the artsy-fartsy who spends your days in art galleries, or the girl about town on your routine café or bar runs, the collection’s footwear is going to be a staple in your personal wardrobe. Tried, tested and proven, we round up six fresh ways to wear our favourite Coach Spring Summer 2016 footwear picks.
