Is there anything we don’t love about shearling? The feel on our toes after our feet first hit the ground in the morning, the look of it thrown over a cozy chair, the luxurious-cool way it frames our faces when placed on a collar… And for fall, Dries did it, LV did it, even Fendi and Carven did it. Let’s do it, let’s fall in love with shearling. Shop our favorite pieces — they’re available right now.

9 Things to Know About Stuart Vevers’ FW15 Collection for Coach

Ah, Coach. Easily one of the best shows of the day. Stuart Vevers‘ reinvigoration of the American heritage brand is going swimmingly — each season gets better and better.

Fall found us in a somewhat nostalgic and totally unpretentious zone, with star models like Binx Walton, Lexi Boling, and Sam Rollinson clothed in familiar silhouettes cut from luxurious materials — think the thickest shearling and fleece, and the most perfect leathers. Want the general gist of things? Here’s what’s what.

1. Think the basic principals of a school girl’s wardrobe in better materials and more generous, flattering cuts.

2. Stuart Vevers loves shearling every which way (and so will you.)
