Coach debuted its Fall 2023 collection with a runway show at the Park Avenue Armory.

February 17, 2023

For the Coach Fall 2023 RTW runway show, Creative Director Stuart Vevers held an intimate gathering in the Armory’s historic hall, where refinement combined with attitude tells a story about individuality, community and safe spaces. Inspired by New York house parties, the intimate presentation gave guests a close-up view of the collection, highlighting texture, spontaneous energy and human connection.

“Fall was inspired by our belief that when you show up as you really are, you inspire others to do so, too,” said Vevers. “The collection presents an authentic interpretation of the heritage and house codes that define Coach, redefined through the next generation’s concept of individuality and expression.”

Fall introduced shearling, leather, and denim pieces in youthful proportions and colors, and enriched with artisanal treatments. The house brought a modern attitude to classic leather staples like trenches, jackets and skirts, explored in floor-length silhouettes. Shearling, a house code, was introduced in new design concepts that highlighted a youthful approach to the material’s rugged attitude, including colorful metallic shearling, cropped and oversized aviator silhouettes with shearling-wrapped hardware, and lovingly pre-worn shearling treated with a hand-finished technique.

Inspired by Vevers’ vision to redefine Coach craft through the lens of circularity by exploring, designing and learning, the house also introduced new design concepts using sustainable materials. Fall debuted iterations of the season’s leather ready-to-wear crafted of upcycled leather scraps—each one unique. The house also expanded Coach (Re)Loved, its program focused on giving Coach bags a second life, by bringing its “Remade” pillar to footwear. The collection introduced leather sneakers with the upper crafted from repurposed, pre-loved Coach bags, deconstructed and reimagined. The house also crafted a series of colorful, silk chiffon slip dresses, naturally dyed with botanicals like logwood, safflower and marigold, and designed with minimal waste practices—using fabric scraps from pattern-cutting as embellishments. Finally, the collection introduced jewelry reimagined from repurposed vintage pieces.
