Thinking of channeling your inner New York City persona? Coach is launching its Fall/Winter collection and it has plenty of silhouettes meant for the modern, downtown look sported by your typical New Yorker.
At a media preview recently, guests had a first look at Coach's Ready-to-Wear collection, as well as three main sub-collections: Plaid, Swagger and Wild Beast.
Fans of the brand can look forward to colour blocks, animal prints, shearling trimmings, plaids and mostly wearable pieces - for both women and men.

In an attempt to revive looks set by the original Coach girl Bonnie Cashin, the brand played with colour blocks for its accessories - especially in its Swagger sub-collection.
This collection also features a new family of iconic bags for Coach.
One of its more prominent bags is the 3-way Coach Swagger shoulder bag that can be worn several ways.

The Plaid sub-collection explores more of a grunge style - think boyfriend plaids, metal chains and leather.
Also known as "Mount Plaid", it offers scarves, crossbody bags, leather gloves and even backpacks.

Although it made a debut this Spring, the "Wild Beast" sub-collection is officially launched this season and is poised to be a lifestyle collection for both women and men.
Back in Spring, it was Los Angeles artist Gary Baseman who had shared his creative talent and took Coach to a different level with his unique taste.
Now that the sub-collection has officially launched, animal-print lovers will have many new pieces to feast their eyes on and choose from. Key items from 'Wild Beast' include the bomber jacket and fur-trimmed beanies.

The brand has always envisioned its collections to be a journey through remixed American silhouettes, with a focus on New York City. But its accessories have become a staple amongst many in this country, owing to our city's love for urbanisation and the occasional luxe style.
Coach's spirit this season is fierce and edgy yet functional - something many will appreciate.
The Fall/Winter 2015 collection will be made available at Coach's flagship store in Wisma Atria this September. Prices start from $425 and $195 for the women's and men's ready-to-wear collection respectively.
