Blurring the lines between streetwear, design, and technology, the limited edition shades come in vivid colorways with a matching microbag and special packaging. The lenses are sleek and display unique colored logos on the stem of the frames in vibrant shades of blue, pink, and yellow to enhance, but never take away from, your personal style.

Coach debuted its Fall 2023 collection with a runway show at the Park Avenue Armory. A celebration of the heritage silhouettes and codes that define Coach’s American fashion language, seen through the eyes of a new generation, Fall introduced shearling, leather, and denim pieces in youthful proportions and colors, and enriched with artisanal treatments. The house brought a modern attitude to classic leather staples like trenches, jackets and skirts, explored in floor-length silhouettes.
The house also expanded Coach (Re)Loved, its programme focused on giving Coach bags a second life, by bringing its “Remade” pillar to footwear. The collection introduced leather sneakers with the upper crafted from repurposed, pre-loved Coach bags, deconstructed and reimagined. The house also crafted a series of colorful, silk chiffon slip dresses, naturally dyed with botanicals like logwood, safflower and marigold, and designed with minimal waste practices – using fabric scraps from pattern-cutting as embellishments. Finally, the collection introduced jewelry reimagined from repurposed vintage pieces.
