FIRST LOOK: COACH AND RODARTE

Summer is in full swing and the heat has been turned up with the collaboration between Coach, the original American house of leather, and Rodarte, the conceptual American luxury label, resulting in a limited-edition capsule collection simply called Coach & Rodarte.

FIRST LOOK: COACH AND RODARTE

The collection, which is comprised of ready-to-wear pieces and leather bags, is a study of contrasts. Coach's Creative Director, Stuart Vevers, and Rodarte's Kate and Laura Mulleavy, explored the idea of mixing textures and the style vocabularies of New York and Los Angeles; modern versus ethereal; Coach's interest in utility and unprecious luxury versus Rodarte's unabashed romance and fanciful demi-couture.

The resulting pieces are covetable and nothing short of fantastic, with Coach's signature glovetanned leather serving as the perfect canvas for Rodarte's signature use of intricate embellishments. With the unique combination of both brands' take on design, the partnership becomes more than just a seasonal project — it is, instead, a celebration of design know-how and commitment to craftsmanship.

Commenting on the collaboration, the Mulleavy sisters said: "We love how Coach believes in American luxury and craftsmanship. We also love their incredible archive and the imaging of the brand over the years." Vevers added, "Rodarte's conceptual approach to American style was the perfect lens to reimagine nostalgic Coach pieces. The mash-up of influences resulted in a romantic cool collection that feels right for both houses."

The Coach & Rodarte collection will be available on 14 April at select Coach stores and specialty retailers worldwide and online at coach.com
