COACH PRESENTS “LIGHTS, CAMERA, HOLIDAY” A HOLIDAY CAMPAIGN STARRING SELENA GOMEZ - With an unexpected cast of new festive friends…

Coach unveiled “Lights, Camera, Holiday,” its campaign for the 2018 holiday season. Starring actress, singer and global face of Coach women’s Selena Gomez, the campaign follows the star and an unexpected cast of animated animals as they audition for the gig of the season: the Coach holiday windows. Playful, inclusive and irreverent, the campaign puts gifts and the tradition of holiday windows at the heart of the story to celebrate all that is fun and festive about this time of year.

To launch the campaign, Coach releases a series of short animated films written and directed by creative duo Henry and Rel of Supermarché. Shot in a raw, irreverent style, the films reveal the audition tapes of Selena and her festive friends as they compete for a role in the Coach holiday windows. 

In addition, Coach unveils today a print advertising campaign for the 2018 holiday collection. Set against the glittering skyline of New York, the photographs show Selena emerging from a vintage car holding the Parker bag in metallic leather. Revealing the star ready to steal the spotlight, the campaign captures the magic and charm of New York during the holiday season.

To bring this vision to life, Coach worked with a team of long-time collaborators: photographer Steven Meisel, art director Fabien Baron, makeup artist Pat McGrath and hair stylist Guido Palau.

Études x The New York Times

etudes-x-The-New-York-Times_fy1.jpg

The many histories of a city are documented within all its existent details—the animate, as well as the inanimate—yet, it’s the press that forever immortalizes a city’s biography. Here, our stories are still the stories of everyone; archived and remembered, and forever surviving.

With this season’s arrival, Études is excited to announce their newest collaboration featuring the renowned New York Times logo, centralizing around the general theme of history versus daily information.

Since 1851, the US news organization has influenced and shaped minds beyond its own audience. Throughout this special project, Études appropriates The Times’s logo that in the past centuries and decades has become one of the most recognized symbols.

By translating the news organization’s image onto Études’ new collection— with the inclusion of shirts, caps, scarves, jackets—the continual existence of stories is physically recalled into the everyday, making us remember that our generations are also there to be echoed in those to come.

This collaboration is composed of:

WERNER Cape

WEEGEE Reporter 

Jacket MUNDO 

Hoodie (Women) STREAM 

Hoodie (Men) AWAY 

Shirt (Women) PORTRAIT 

Shirt (Men) UNITY T-Shirts

+ Accessories: 

ZONE Cap

MAGNOLIA Scarf
