Coach : Spring 2016
An exploration of iconic Americana - the sense of freedom that comes from the great American landscape and the individuality of the melting pot that is New York.
Playing with juxtapositions in an uncontrived way between boy and girl; between utility and luxury; between American countercultures. The dreaminess of prairie girl patchwork prints meets the attitude of surf girl and punk cowgirl, seen through a downtown eye.
American original wardrobe archetypes melded together. Super-heritage pieces that gently reference uptown aristocracy, disassembled, dissected and reconstructed to make something new. Leathers used in their elemental state, not too perfect or precious.
Celebrating the imperfections that give character. Mixing pieces in a way that feels new and youthful but at the same time has a nostalgic charm. Personalizing the familiar and making it your own, with a spirit that could only have been born in New York City.
