Creative Director Stuart Vevers has recently taken up residence on the Upper West Side and was inspired by dramas such as Whit Stillman’s Metropolitan for the Coach Resort 2020 collection. Released in 1990, the movie depicts a group of young, wealthy uptown New Yorkers during debutante season and was the jumping point for Resort.

The collection still delivered a certain downtown attitude. Vevers cited perennial New York cool girl Chloë Sevigny as an influence, and the new suits seem designed to be twisted and turned with kooky accessories the way she does best. With that in mind, the ankle-nipping retro running shoes took the current yen for clunky dad sneakers in a streamlined new direction.

The designer has always had a rich archive of handbags and outerwear to play with thanks to Bonnie Cashin, Coach’s first designer, who helped make the leather goods brand a household name in the ’60s and ’70s.

The first-ever house code, the Horse and Carriage, reenergized, appeared throughout the collection as the statement of the season. Replete with graphic racing stripes, the V-neck knit horse-and-carriage tanks and shrunken button-down shirts reflected the new motif.
