#AMERICAN HUSTLE

WITH BRITISH DESIGNER STUART VEVERS AT THE HELM, COACH’S COVETABLE NEW COLLECTION IS BOTH CLASSIC AND COOL. SINGER CHLÖE WEARS IT WELL.


September 2014

Ask Stuart Vevers, Coach’s new creative director, to define the heritage brand’s girl, and he'll tell you this: “She has an effortless, cool attitude with a lightness of spirit.” While that’s clear from the shearling coats, space-rocket sweaters, and abbreviated skirts dotting his fall lineup, Stuart could just as easily have been alluding to burgeoning songstress Chlöe Howl, the flame-haired 19-year-old from London who is fast becoming known for her smoky pop vocals and boy-meets-girl dress sense. “I love the bomber jacket!” she enthuses of the red-and-black herringbone design after trying it on for our shoot. “I tend to wear a lot of patterns on stage. It’s much more interesting to jump out in loads of colors rather than disappear into the background in gray!”
