The darkly playful little creatures staring, big-eyed, from the front of Coach bags, were almost as much of a draw as Gary Baseman, the artist who created them.
For this installation at London’s Serpentine Sackler Gallery also featured Los Angeles-based Gary as a mind reader, drawing out from the fashion crowd their deepest secrets.
Stuart Vevers, creative director of Coach, has lightened and enlivened the all-American handbag brand. Whilst taking inspiration for the collections and their presentation from all over the United States, he is also pitching for hip young followers — hence the sets of live music for the Serpentine evening event.

The evening added up to a merry romp, which brought a cool attitude to Coach.
