This week’s roundup includes a mix of local and international updates

The Coach x Champion collection is here

A week after creative director Stuart Vevers teased a Coach x Champion collab on Instagram, the collection has officially launched today, and the pieces seamlessly fuse fashion and athleisure. The limited-edition line includes an array of pieces such as sweaters, jogger pants, shearling jackets, and bags, and they’re all embroidered with fresh, new branding that combines the fashion house’s story patch and the sportswear brand’s C-logo.

“I’m excited to introduce Coach x Champion, a collection grounded in the authentic American heritage we share,” said Coach Creative Director Stuart Vevers. “I was inspired by the idea of elevating sportswear silhouettes in an unmistakably Coach way using leather, shearling and by combining our iconic symbols in a way that feels fresh, youthful and immediate.”

Aside from model Paloma Elsesser, the campaign also features fashion TikTok star Wisdom Kaye, stylist Maha Gondal, and actor and singer Jeffrey Tung. 

The collection is now available via Coach on Delivery.
