>> I don’t meant to cause people migraines with my pattern mashing, but I just can’t help myself, especially when I was presented with some of Coach’s spring summer patchwork ditzy florals.  And oh, it’s cold and wet – let’s load up on the florals with a vaguely Victorian tapestry pattern on a Babyghost hooded jacket that I’ve been wearing to death to try and counteract the grey dingy weather.

The pattern on pattern on pattern is one fun string to Stuart Vevers’ bow at Coach so far.  But he can cut out the faff too when required.  Case in point, I probably looked a little overexcited in my floral overload as I looked up at Coach’s latest autumn winter 2016 menswear show, where colours were sombre and silhouettes were serious.  As in seriously hefty.  The inspiration points were apparently Bruce Springsteen and early New York hip hop.  They’re chunky masculine touchstones that managed to come together to create rugged utilitarian clothes that are almost deliberately big not necessarily in the sense of physical size but it its simplistic in yer’ face expression.  Big sheepskin.  Big leathers.  Big teddy bear fur.  Big checked suit.  Big puffa coats for arctic winters.  Big rucksacks.  Big bucket hats.  These are clothes for wearing when your body sort of shrinks and shudders in the cold and your neck and head almost disappears into the warm crevices of a piece of outerwear, which as a category is fast becoming part of Vevers’ strong suit at Coach.   For its newly minted menswear ready to wear category, it will make for simple to digest thoroughfare on the rails, for everyman (and possibly women too) to get their teeth too when the temperatures plummet.
