Anyone following rapper Lil Nas X would know that he is no stranger to taking fashion risks and pushing the boundaries (his 2023 Met Gala’s outfit consisted of silver paint, Swarovski crystals and a thong. ’Nuff said).
So it’s no surprise that the “Old Town Road” singer and Coach have teamed up to release a special capsule called “The Lil Nas X Drop”. The edit includes pieces from the Coach Winter 2023 collection hand-picked and customised by Lil Nas X, inspired by his expressive approach to style.
Coach creative director Stuart Vevers worked with Lil Nas X, who became the brand ambassador last year, to select and customise his favourite pieces, including shearling coats in pop colours, graphics inspired by concert merch, and an American varsity jacket personalised with patches with symbols from his life, like his pet cats and zodiac sign, Aries.
Part of Winter 2023, the collection references American archetypes like leather biker and shearling jackets juxtaposed with tees, sweatshirts and bags brought to life with youthful acid graphics and electric colours that evoke rave culture, and an archival Bonnie Cashin leopard print recontextualised for today.
“The Lil Nas X Drop” will launch on Dec 26 at Coach stores islandwide and on singapore.coach.com.
