When Coach debuted its ready -to-wear line, Coach 1941, in honour of its 75th birthday, I’ll be frank — I was completely and irrevocably blown away. Was Coach ever this cool? What have we been missing all along? Okay guys, we need to set our sartorial priorities straight right now.




But here’s the thing: yes, Stuart Vevers gave the brand a breath of fresh air, but the creative director never compromised on Coach’s legacy. That’s where 1941 Reimagined came into play for Clozette’s latest collaboration with the brand. 

For Coach Fall 2016, looks and pieces hinted at Americana nostalgia with a contemporary attitude. They were reinterpreted, reinvented, remodeled, and reassembled to show off a modern freshness that is both classic and trendy at the same time. A new era of Coach is here, and now every cool boy and girl wants a piece of the American brand.



So, what are the defining traits of a cool girl? In my opinion, she is someone who is unapologetic about who she is, and she never needs gratification from anyone but herself. She is masculine and feminine. She is an insider and an outsider. She is neither here nor there — she takes it all in her stride. 

This brashness — in a good way — is very much in line with Coach Fall 2016, which tells a visual story of “vintage, cowboy and punk”, all mish-mashed together to become surprising wardrobe staples for the urbanites.





For 1941 Reimagined, we shot at an edgy industrial studio in Johor Bahru — a location I instantly fell in love with even before we stepped foot into the premise. It was the perfect urban cool location that lent a complementary contrast to the modern bohemia of Coach Fall 2016, a beautiful play of opposites that speaks of the brand.


There, we made two stop-motion videos and FYI, making the videos was... every bit an interesting experience. Each frame was shot while I put my non-existent yoga skills into good use and posed “frozen” in place. Was it challenging? Without a doubt. Was it fun? Oh, in those outfits, I’d gladly do it all over again.





From varsity jackets and wool sweaters, to fur vests and suede jackets, Coach Fall 2016 offered a wide selection of outerwear. If I have to choose one (what a happy dilemma!), the Motif Crewneck Sweater is definitely one for keeps in my wardrobe. Made with a luxurious wool and cashmere blend, this fun statement piece in itself is perfect for layering in our temperamental climate. 

Note to self: layer over frilly dress, leather skirt, skinny jeans, black culottes — basically everything!





And in case you didn’t know already: one thing’s for sure, Coach never fails in the accessories department. The aesthetics may have been rejuvenated, but quality leather workmanship — the root of the Coach brand — is still visible in every seam and every intricate detailing. 

I am obsessed with the Rogue bag 36 in Colorblock Python. This functional bag is spacious enough for my day-to-day essentials (my trusty MacBook Air, organiser, wallet, and the likes), and its top handles come in an exotic leather finish to add a punctuation of “toughness” into the ensemble.





Now, can we take a moment to admire those metallic studded leather loafers? These stunning block-heeled High Vamp Loafer with Studs are embellished with rivets, studs and faux pearl cabochons at all the right places without seeming too over-the-top.






With a collection chock-full of statement pieces from ready-to-wear to accessories and bags, Coach has once again outdone itself this Fall 2016. And just in case you can’t find me, I’ll be hanging out with the Coach gang.

2016 has been a whirlwind of style inspiration, from giving us a fresh take on classic fashion to reinterpreting the image of what’s cool, this year’s sartorial journey has been enigmatic and celebratory of history, street-style and sub-cultures.

Motif Crewneck Sweater 

 
Nostalgia and the re-imagination of the classics form the backbone of this collection, and the Motif Crewneck Sweater fully captures that essence of prep-school-girl all grown up. Pair it with the Leather A-line Skirt for a blend of texture to give the look that “ready-to-take-on-the-city” vibe.

Western Embroidery Rogue Bag & High Vamp Loafers With Shield



To balance the mix of textures prevalent through the collection, opt for a structured bag. Inspired by both Western wear and the modern New York subway, the Western Embroidery Rogue Bag blends the softness of floral detailing with bold stripes for a play on contrast.

And since this collection is full of edge and eclecticism, be fearless and go bold with your footwear with this pair of High Vamp Loafers With Shield. A reimagined version of hockey shoes, this statement piece is loud and bold with its embossed and shimmering leather, cabochons, studs, and an Edwardian-inspired chunky heel. It combines the extreme elements of classic glam and varsity-playoffs in pure Coach elegance.

Buckle Square Sunglasses


What’s a cool-girl look without statement sunglasses? Straying away from typical black frames, the Buckle Square Sunglasses offers a hint of spunk without losing the element of mystery with its glamorously oversized frames. Inspired by the ‘70s, it’s a throwback to hippie-glamour; but modernized and made spunky with the addition of the iconic Coach buckle hardware as a temple detail.


--------------------------

Coach and Coach 41 Championship Rings



Accessories can take an outfit from an eight-to-a-ten if curated just right. Inspired by both traditional championship games and glamour statement pieces, these Coach and Coach 41 Championship Rings are cool-girl staples. These silver rings encrusted with Swarovski crystals not only exude luxury but also celebrates the spunk of street-style and prep-school nostalgia.


--------------------------

Coach New York Eau De Toilette



Nothing fully captures the vibe and aura of a cool-girl style than a signature scent. So to complete the look, go for a spritz of the Coach New York Eau De Toilette. After all, fragrances seem to have this power to capture the spirit and soul of a city; and nothing speaks “cool-girl” more than a fragrance inspired by the spontaneous energy and style of New York City.

With notes of bright, sparkling raspberry combined with hints of Turkish roses, the Coach New York Eau De Toilette is a musky, suede-like fragrance that represents the free-spirit and authentic cool-girl attitude of the quintessential Coach girl.
