British-born Stuart Vevers took the creative helm at Coach in 2013. In the four years since, Vevers has completely reimagined its offerings. Building on his expertise in luxury accessories honed at Louis Vuitton, Mulberry and Loewe, Vevers has grown the 76-year-old New York brand to include a full ready-to-wear line while never losing sight of Coach’s leather goods heritage. His Rogue, Mercer and Dinky women’s styles and Gotham men’s tote draw upon his love of Americana, and became instant classics for the house. This is the designer’s first CFDA nomination.
