You must be wondering, what’s there to collaborate between two American brands? Well, for one, the Mulleavy sisters and Stuart Vevers share a similar punk-rock aesthetic and the love for all things sequins and embellishments. Coming together to work on something that amplifies the creative vision of both labels is perhaps as good as it gets when it comes to the Coach x Rodarte collaboration collection.
Rodarte, who has always specialised in their edgy RTW, have teamed up with Coach and its expertise in leather, making it one of the most interesting collections that’s made up of RTW, handbags and accessories so far this year. Take, for example, the standout shoulder sling bags that effortlessly combine Rodarte’s signature appliqué styles with Coach’s leather craftsmanship; it’s like a match made in heaven.
Then there are also the sweatshirts and tees that feature Coach’s advertisements from the 70s with slogans like This Is A Coach Bag that’s definitely fun and a little quirky, perfect for those with an ample sense of humour. The collection evens extends to more elaborate pieces like leather dresses and motorcycle jackets, which start from an affordable USD295 all the way to USD1900 for the one-off limited edition collection.
Now that we’re all excited, here’s the bad news. The collection will not be available in Singapore, but will be available online via Coach US come 14 April 2017. In other words, it’s time to ask anyone you know who’s located in the States to help you out, or better yet (and not owe anyone favours), just use a good forwarder that you can ship to in the US before the parcel is shipped onward to our sunny shores. Too much effort? Not really, especially when it is a collaboration this beautiful.
