So, y’all may remember when we introduced you to our main man Stuart Vevers a couple of months back. The designer extraordinaire took over as Executive Creative Director at Coach in 2013, and has rejigged the once-stodgy luxury house with a completely fresh and vital energy. Vevers’ biggest coup thus far has been the launch of Coach 1941, a more opulent ready-to-wear extension of the brand, a few seasons ago, and that line’s latest collection is easily its most desirable yet. Here, we’ve picked out our three favourite 1941 pieces — a trio of wardrobe essentials that typify Vevers’ spot-on design philosophy.
