Coach’s New Ryder Bag by Stuart Vevers

The Fall 2014 collection, also Stuart Vevers’s (ex-Loewe Creative Director) debut collection for Coach. And along with him, comes a new design aesthetic. The much touted reinterpreted Ryder bag is dubbed as one of the stars (if not THE star) of the collection.

Here are some photos of the Ryder that I grabbed off Instagram during the Fall 2014 presentation in Tokyo …

Well, it certainly is a more youthful update, not to mention a little edgier than what we’re used to seeing from the streamlined Coach bags by former Creative Director Reed Krakoff. And now, don’t get me wrong, because I absolutely ADORED what Stuart Vevers did for Loewe (I mean, who doesn’t love the Flamenco?) and I kinda like this revamped Ryder, but it kinda seems like a Proenza Schouler-Balenciaga offspring if the two brands got married and had a kid.

What are YOUR thoughts?
