The latest collection by Coach references the nostalgia of space exploration. It is inspired by American dreamers past and present, featuring symbols of endless possibility in a new light.
The iconic Dinky and Saddle bags, crafted in glove-tanned leather, are embellished with stars, rivets and embossed Nasa-inspired logos. Apollo rockets and customised leather patches add a playful element to the Rogue and Gotham totes.
Even Rexy, the iconic Coach dinosaur, reappears on T-shirts and bags donning an astronaut helmet and jetpack. He is pictured as blasting off to explore the unknown of space travel.
According to Coach’s creative director Stuart Vevers, the space references, rockets and planets are symbolic of a moment of ultimate American optimism and togetherness.
“The collection is very nostalgic. There’s something about the time of the Space Program that just gives this feeling of possibility,” he says, on the significance of the its inspiration.
Throwback to the 70s and 80s
This limited-edition capsule collection also introduces two new silhouettes – the Dylan bag, an updated take on flight bags from the 1970s, and the League backpack, a throwback to 80s school bags.
