Wish List: Our Favourite Pieces from the Coach 1941 Spring 2017 Collection

There’s a whole lot of attitude injected into the Coach 1941 spring ready-to-wear collection. Inspired by rebels, beatniks and dreamers, and paying homage to Elvis, the lineup features a bevy of jackets, from embroidered varsity styles to studded leather bikers and Western-meets-seventies styles with loads of fringed leather. Quirky shark and dinosaur motifs pop up on vivid cashmere sweaters, and feminine floral dresses have been worked in cotton, silk and chiffon, and adorned with dainty lace. On the accessories front, bags and shoes come encrusted with studs and bits of hardware in all shapes and sizes. Highlighting the iconic craftsmanship of the all-American, 75-year-old brand, the mash-up of looks might be Stuart Vevers’—Coach’s executive creative director—boldest collection yet since the British designer joined the company back in 2013. Here are three star pieces we’re lusting after.

Customized leather jacket style No. 86935

The Jacket
From its rocker studs, lace patchwork, and Elvis patch in the shape of a heart, this badass lamb-leather moto is a serious outfit-making layering piece.

Sheer dress style No. 86995

The Dress
Made with sheer organza and embellished with a contrasting black ribbon tie, this prairie floral midi has total ’90s grunge-girl vibes, and requires little styling effort to go from day or night. #Obsessed.

Rogue 25 in glovetanned pebble leather with wild tea rose style No. 86844

The Bag
Loaded with striking hand-painted wild tea rose appliqués and hardware, this goes-with-anything leather handbag mixes femininity with downtown edge. Rock this structured masterpiece dangling from your wrist with the top handles, or swing it over your shoulder with the removable strap.
