A/W14 has been a significant season for leather brand Coach, launching the first ready-to-wear line for the house under new creative director Stuart Vevers: a nostalgic, youth-driven collection of varsity jackets, houndstooth parkas and a mass of shearling collars, inspired by the wistful wash of 1970s American suburbia. And now, Coach has also enrolled the assistance of Peanuts, Charlie Brown and the gang for a range of limited edition Snoopy x Coach accessories. Influenced by the same American culture that drives the RTW collection, the series includes bags, wallets and accessories in tan leather, embossed with creator Charles M. Schulz’s iconic Snoopy sketches. The partnership also launches the first Coach app, available from this week.
In celebration of the launch, AnOther revisits highlights from one of the greatest Snoopy books of all time: Snoopy Around The World: Dressed by Fashion Designers, from 1990.
The Snoopy x Coach collection is available now from Colette, Paris
