We’ve heard of sports luxe, too much of it really, but how about skater luxe? That’s the aim of the game for Coach‘s Saddle Dot collection – a series of bags and ready-to-wear pieces that combine the house’s love for old-school saddle leather with an urban attitude.

An embossed black dot graphic is key here, and this is seen all over silhouettes inspired by street and skate styles. There’s the Duffle in three sizes, the the Barrel Bag, Campus Backpack and a new Taxi Tote, along with t-shirts, sweats, and playful accessories including a watch, wallets and a skate sneaker with a high-rise sole and turnlock detail.

Says Creative Director Stuart Vevers, “This collection is about fun and celebrating the world of skate that’s so intrinsically part of American pop culture yet embraced all around the world. It’s inspiring to have the opportunity to work with a design vocabulary that is so quintessentially Coach, like the saddle leather, and then to create something surprising by working with it in unexpected contexts.”
