Vogue, February 2019
Vogue meets Coach’s creative director Stuart Vevers ahead of his AW19 show to discuss his new NYFW venue, the power of colour, and collaborating with American textile artist Kaffe Fassett
Stuart Vevers is in a psychedelic mood this season. “I’m loving colour, light, optimism,” he tells Vogue ahead of the Coach AW19 show during New York Fashion Week. “I wanted a collection that really celebrated colour.”
The luxury American brand may have a long history in the leather goods trade (78 years, to be precise), but clothing remains relatively new turf. Key to Vevers’ success in building the label’s ready-to-wear identity is his ability to explore the idea of American craft in new and exciting ways each season.
