Stuart Vevers showed off winter florals at Coach’s fall/ winter 19 show.

As New York Fashion Week nears its end for another season, Vevers made sure fashion editors had something to remember with his outstanding outwear offering for the upcoming colder months.

The British designer showed off both men’s and women’s fashions in Coach’s co-ed show on Tuesday (12Feb19), with the boys modelling shearling-lined buffalo plaids and quilted leather jackets, while the girls showed off fringing, furry and shearling styles.

Flowers adorned multiple garments in the collection, seen in deep purples, burnt oranges and blues – perfect shades for fall/ winter.

Vevers also didn’t stray too far from the prairie trends he’s coveted in recent seasons, seen this time in pointed-toe boots, flowing chiffon and ruffled detailing, but for 2019 they were given a tougher edge.

“I’m loving colour, light, optimism,” he told British Vogue ahead of the presentation. “I wanted a collection that really celebrated colour.”

There was also a nod to the psychedelic, with pops of colour and swirly patterns. And artist Kaffe Fassett served as an inspiration too, with patchwork quilt prints directly inspired by him.

“His style has that kind of West Coast aesthetic authority that I was really drawn to. I was fortunate enough that he was into the idea of working together, so we chose prints directly from his archive; some we kept very close to the original, some we recoloured with him,” he told the publication.

Other standout looks include a plaid lumberjack print, seen on jackets, both men’s and women’s and dresses, faux fur coats and Vevers’ new season tailoring.

Coach ambassadors Michael B. Jordan and Chloe Grace Moretz sat front row at the style spectacle, while model of the moment Kaia Gerber lead the catwalk stars.

Marc Jacobs will bring New York Fashion Week to a close on Wednesday, with shows from Michael Kors and Boss too.
