Coach has launched a Limited Edition in collaboration with illustrator Charles M. Schultz, and yep, that's right, it's the Peanuts gang! Word of this capsule collection brought a smile to my face, because, when growing up, Charlie Brown, Snoopy, Woodstock and the gang were one of my favourite cartoons, and I used to watch it religiously, and even bought copies of the cartoon on VHS tapes. Yes, VHS... the era before digital technology and the birth of i-everything.
Creative Director Stuart Vevers (formally from Loewe) comments that "Coach has for so many years been an American institution so it seems fitting to honour that heritage with iconography that captures moments in American pop culture. Peanuts and Snoopy were a rite of passage for a generation and continue to be so emotive - there's a particular image of joyful Snoopy that I've always loved and have in our studio that manages to capture so much feeling and emotion in a sketch. I was intrigued by the idea of taking that image and playfulness but subverting it. A rebellious spirit is contrasted with reassuringly natural Coach leather to create something unexpected."
The 21-piece Limited Edition collection comprises bags, SLGs, wall art, and sweaters. And this isn't a regular limited edition collection, because all items in the series are numbered.
