FLY­ING HIGH

Harper’s Bazaar (Malaysia) - - Bazaar Shops! -

The High Line in New York City was filled with an ex­cite­ment that was al­most pal­pa­ble; it was the be­gin­ning of its year­long fête of its 75th an­niver­sary, but it was also the first Coach 1941 Spring/Sum­mer ’16 run­way show. BAZAAR was front and cen­tre to wit­ness this his­tor­i­cal mo­ment with Coach, and it was ev­i­dent in each look that came down the run­way (com­plete with musthave bags of the sea­son), that they were in­tel­li­gently de­signed in the spirit of hon­our­ing Amer­i­can crafts­man­ship. 2016 sees the launch of the highly an­tic­i­pated Coach Her­itage cam­paign, wherein Vev­ers and his team of highly skilled leather crafts­men have re­worked two of Bon­nie Cashin’s, founder of Coach’s, orig­i­nal de­signs from the ar­chives, and cre­ated the Sad­dle and the Dinky bags. Fo­cus­ing on the sim­plic­ity of the iconic ’70s bags, Vev­ers ex­plains, “Our mod­ern lux­ury bags sym­bol­ise a lot of what Coach is about: great Amer­i­can style, ease, a re­laxed qual­ity. This is a re­turn to the much-loved leather.”
