CHAMPAGNE AND SWAGGER AT COACH ANNE LEE PHILLIPS RIDES IN HIGH STYLE. PHOTOGRAPHY AULIYA FLORY. H ot on the heels of its first major runway show at New York Fashion Week, Coach invited style-makers to a soirée at its beautiful Galleria boutique to highlight the latest Coach collection, which showcases newish creative director Steve Vevers' vision. While the ready-to- wear was being shown in New York, Coach's updated and instantly classic bags, accessories and outerwear were front and center at this fête. The luxe new shearling and wool coats in persimmon and plaids were test-driven around the store, and Coach devotees perused the new Swagger bags and accessories with champagne and cocktails by Deep Eddy Vodka cocktails in hand. (Celebs Chrissy Tiegen, Jenna Ushkowitz and Thaila Ayala have all recently Instagrammed their love for the bag, with the hashtag #whatsyourswagger.) Chair/PaperCity social editor Anne Lee Phillips, style bloggers Chandra Bonine and Chastiti Horne of In the Loop Style and Candace Thomas of Luxe with Kids each sported new bags, as did interior designer Mary Patton and Ting Bresnahan. In a special surprise, store manager Stephanie Hoverman and district manager Natalie Cohen wowed the ladies by stamping leather ID tags with their monograms with the fancy in-house embossing machine. On the scene: Coach's Richard Butler, in from Dallas, Biscuit Home's Valerie McFarland, A Piece of Toast blog's Molly Miller, and Mirth Caftans duo/sisters Erin Breen and Katie McClure. RAVING OVER SPRING 2016 READY-TO-WEAR The 75-year-old brand has long been known for its leather goods, but since creative director Stuart Vevers' appointment in 2013, ready-to-wear has blossomed. Spring 2016 marked Coach's first full-scale New York Fashion Week show and had us seriously swooning. Mini skull motifs meet petite floral prints in a highly curated color palette. The collection is currently available on and has been picked up by such edgy and trend- setting stores as The Webster in Miami Beach (opening in Houston this month). Herewith, a few of our editors' fave looks.
