Coach x Tabitha Simmons Collaboration

by BJ Panda Bear

Coach just launched their collaboration with the award winning shoe label Tabitha Simmons. The collab sees Simmons presenting her first ever handbag design, as well as a range of footwear which meets Simmons’ playful femininity with Coach’s American classic style. Bridging this NY cool and quirky femininity, the collection continues to push the strengths of colors might on fashion, incorporating floral prints onto hiker boors as well as Mary Janes. The bag presented in the collection is a revisioning of Coach’s 1973 classic, the Suspender Pouch, remixed with a touch of color blocking and rivet details to get that rock and roll going. 

About the collection Simmons said, “I was thrilled to design my first handbag… I especially loved going into the Coach archives and seeing the beautiful leathers and timeless shapes from the ’50s and ’60s.” As for the mutual regard for the designers Simmons has been vocal in the celebration of the clashing prints stating, “I have always admired Stuart as a designer and enjoy seeing how his collections evolve season after season… It has been incredible working with him to bring our collaboration to life in a way that honors both of our brand’s aesthetics. I love the contrast between whimsical, feminine florals and a little bit of a punk and edginess—there is something for every woman in this collection.”
