UPDATE: BAPE Teases Pieces From Upcoming Coach Collaboration
Including a leather monogram puffer.
UPDATE (February 12, 2020): Though Coach‘s Fall/Winter 2020 show at New York Fashion Week didn’t provide an on-the-runway look at its upcoming collaboration with BAPE, the Japanese streetwear brand teased select items from the collection on Instagram. Worn by Quincy Brown and Koki, the pieces are printed with a special monogram combining BAPE’s gorilla with Coach’s repeating C print. A leather puffer and pocketbook boast the collaborative monogram, and a photo of Brown posing with a giant Baby Milo stuffed animal suggests the character will make an appearance in the collection.
Stay tuned for the official BAPE x Coach collection release date.
