Just a week ago, Coach celebrated the opening of a new New York City flagship. Now, the house Stuart Vevers has revived (with the help of a dinosaur mascot) is taking on the United Kingdom’s fashion capital with a new Regent Street store, marking its entry into one of London’s most coveted shopping destinations. Like Kendall + Kylie’s launch and the recent Burberry party before it, the new Coach offers custom monogramming on its pieces; its launch also featured British It girls of the past and present, including Edie Campbell, Daisy Lowe, and Kate Moss — all wearing Coach, of course. Moss has favored Coach on occasion, its laid-back, varsity style melding perfectly with her casual London look, and the launch party (which held forth, incidentally, on Thanksgiving), proved why the supermodel is still beloved by designers and fashion insiders even 20 years after her breakout moment.
Who: Kate Moss.
When: Thursday, November 24.
Where: A party celebrating the opening of the Coach Regent Street flagship in London, England.
What: A red mohair leopard-print sweater by Coach with leather shorts and a leather jacket, a choker, tights, and stiletto heels.
Why: Moss is singlehandedly reviving a look that was all the rage on British teens five and 10 years ago. She stands out from the rest of the Coach-dressed crowd, including street style favorites like Edie Campbell, Poppy Delevingne, and Daisy Lowe, by pairing opaque black tights with chic black leather shorts and sky-high stiletto heels. She dresses the whole thing down with a brightly, festively colored mohair sweater and a leather jacket, because there’s no such thing as too much leather. Topping it all off with a wide black choker, Moss seems to borrow a few tips from little sister Lottie’s style rulebook — the younger Moss, a budding model herself, is an established fan of the trend that will never die.
