Kate Moss, J-Lo Go ‘Rogue’ for Coach Fall 2021 Campaign
Though they ruled the ’90s, the news cycle still seemingly can’t happen without them. Indeed, just yesterday the chatter/fashion press was oohing and aahing at Jennifer Lopez in full Dolce & Gabbana as she arrived at the Italian fashion house’s splashy show during the 2021 Venice Film Festival. The day before, Kate Moss was in the headlines by way of the new Oasis book Knebworth: Two Nights That Will Live Forever, recalling how the British supermodel / unabashed rocker had trainers actually flown in for the now legendary 1996 gig.
Kate has mitigated the wild behavior since that time (and daughter Lila Grace Moss Hack is now nearly as old as her mum was back then). But she and J-Lo can rock a look as well or better than they ever have. And for the new Coach Fall 2021 campaign, both are looking particularly fabulous. The New York based accessories giant – which celebrates its 80th birthday this year – has just reintroduced its Rogue bag, which debuted in 2016 and has already become a staple of the brand’s handbag stable.
The newest version catches the environmentally conscious zeitgeist by way of its new level of sustainability, being crafted now from mostly recycled and organic materials. For the campaign (which also stars Chinese model Xiao Wen Ju and Japanese singer/model Kōki), Kate remains her ever enigmatic self, her countenance hiding slightly behind a dramatic swoop of hair. But Ms. Lopez beams radiantly, as she shows off those gorgeous gams of hers. The instantly-classic images are by exalted fashion photog Juergen Teller.
“The Rogue is perhaps my favorite bag that I’ve designed at Coach,” enthuses Creative Director (since 2013) Stuart Vevers. “It has that combination of heritage, offbeat attitude and a sense of authentic American style that perfectly embodies my vision for the house. The Fall collection is inspired by the optimism of things crafted to last, and naturally felt like the right moment to reintroduce the Rogue with a new story created with Juergen and our Coach Family.”
And after eighteen months of pandemic stress and anxiety (and not dressing up to go out), optimism is definitely what we need from fashion right now.
