First look: Coach x Rodarte
So, so beautiful, you guys
The collaboration world is on fire today. Coach and Rodarte have unveiled the first pieces from their co-designed limited-edition collection that we seriously hope we won't be left out of. From what we learned so far, the collection has expanded to nearly 40 pieces – far larger than the original 15 that was intended. There will be bags, clothes and accessories, but let's get down to what the collection looks like.
Think Coach's leather craftsmanship and sisters Kate and Laura Mulleavy's embellishments. The result is gorgeous!
"I've been a long admirer of Kate and Laura's work," Coach creative director Stuart Vevers told Refinery29. "I've always enjoyed collaboration and exchanging ideas with other designers. It's something that can be quite rare in the fashion industry. As someone still relatively new to the world of American fashion, I wanted to collaborate with an American designer to expand my point of view. I think Kate and Laura have a very unique approach to fashion that nevertheless embodies the American creative spirit."
Truly, you'd recognise the hearts of both brands in the collection.
Refinery29 added that the collection – out online on the 12th, then in stores from the 14th – is expected to be a little more expensive than Coach's typical prices. Stay tuned as we try to find out if Malaysia will also carry the collection; meanwhile, have your friend/relative overseas on speed dial.
