Coach’s new collection, spearheaded by Creative Director Stuart Vevers, is easy, breezy and all things Americana. We’ve rounded up eight pieces – inspired by everything from baseball to Bazooka and iconic brands such as Campbell’s soup – that will have you dreaming of the ‘great American road trip’ quicker than you can say ‘Grand Canyon’.
Ladies, your adventure-ready capsule awaits…
