Coach x Observed By Us Is Original, Playful and Proud
Coach has launched a bright new collection which has as much skill as it has soul. Made in collaboration with Los Angeles-based illustrator and designer Jessica Herschko and actor Kirsten Dunst, the creative bunch admit that the pieces are quite literally inspired by Dunst’s closet. The Coach x Observed by Us has a spark of innocence mixed with nostalgia for edgy American fashion.
Dunst’s personal style mixed with the brand’s unrestrained creativity and self-expression means that the possibilities are endless. This collab brings some playful and youthful pieces such as ready-to-wear, bags, footwear and accessories that offer a nod to the iconic American style, which might be old school, but with a refreshing new twist. Coach’s heritage colours are blended with new hues to bring together an offbeat, look.
But it is the hand-made touches that add a new spin to this collection. A wool pointelle crop top, overalls and a straw hat: these key pieces of the collaboration are filled with unique hand-drawn illustrations by Herschko. And in the classic Coach style, these designs are all full of stories that are written in Herschko’s handwriting.
Coach Creative Director Stuart Vevers said “Creating this collection with Kirsten and Jessica was delightful. We got to celebrate our shared love of imagination and playfulness. Kirsten, and her style, has often been an inspiration for me,” said Coach Creative Director Stuart Vevers.
