Coach Celebrates its 75th Anniversary with NYFW Dual-Gender Fashion Show

Read More

Coach is making news again as the brand has announced a dual-gender fashion show.

The news at first seemed striking — we thought, men in women’s clothing? The idea is nothing new, especially since transgender models are taking the fashion world by storm. But no, Coach has cleverly positioned the words and publicity of the announcement.

Instead of a separate mens show in London, England, Coach is bringing the men to New York, on February 14th to mix in with the women’s fashion show. During the show, Coach will premier its Fall 2017 Ready-To-Wear collection, as well as “unseen” mens look, WWD reports.

Previously, the house staged four shows a year – two each for men and women. But for the special 75th anniversary, Coach planned something bigger and better.

Here’s a sneak peak of the fashions men will be rocking on the stage this year.
