The New Coach x Selena Gomez Collab is Finally Here


If you didn’t know, stories of true love are a rarity. There’s Dirty Dancing, Casablanca and Love Actually. There’s also Coach and Selena Gomez – the ultimate love story we’ve been tuning in to see again and again. It all started with Miss Selena becoming the brand ambassador in December 2016. One Met Gala later, she worked on her first collection of Coach accessories. Then it was the second Met Gala. Coach’s creative director Stuart Vevers walked up the stairs with the glowing Selena, dressed in a stunning see-through gown with a very long train. So, where are they now? It seems like this engagement finally culminated with a wedding. One of those big, splashy ones. After the announcement that Selena will be designing a full ready-to-wear capsule collection went around the world back in March, the Ten Towers got as excited as if it was another Royal baby announcement. Fast-forward to today and the first images (shot by Steven Meisel) of the newly-weds are in. The Coach x Selena Gomez collection is everything we want it to be and more. Candy-like, pink hues embody Selena’s sweet personality, while the casual-yet-chic slip dresses and knits bring in the sporty elegance that defines her personal style. There’s also the highly covetable bags which Coach is oh, so known for. Two new styles, the Bond and the Trail bags are both guaranteed to become instant hits with their updated takes on classic shapes. There’s only one bad thing about this collaboration. We have to wait a whole week until it goes on pre-sale (August 16th), and then two more until it finally hits the stores (August 31st). Until then, we’ll be tuning into @coach, @selenagomez & @stuartvevers for regular updates. This is the Instagram romance we’ve all been waiting for.
