Luxury Fashion House Coach celebrates PRIDE month with it’s annual PRIDE Capsule Collection, “Pride Is Where You Find It”.
“Pride Is Where You Find It” is a campaign that celebrates the LGBTQ+ community. It advocates that every person should be seen as who they truly are regardless of sexual orientation, race or identity. It is a celebration of optimism, inclusivity, self-expression and authentic self-expression.
Each year during the month of June the world flies their rainbow flags, douses themselves in glitter and celebrates PRIDE month.
Rooted in the fight for equal rights and to commemorate the Stonewall Riots, PRIDE month is not only a time for celebration but also an opportunity to raise political awareness of current issues facing the community.
This year marks the 52th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots. The riots were a series of demonstrations carried out by a group of drag queens in 1969 in response to the police raid of the Stonewall Inn in Greenwich Village, New York.
It was this that led Brenda Howard, the “mother of pride”, to organize the first LGBT Pride march. Today festivals, concerts and parades take place all around the world.
I couldn’t wait to get a peek at this year’s collection so I headed down to the Coach Boutique at Grand Canal Shops inside the Venetian Resort Las Vegas just as the boxes were being unloaded off the truck.
Although the full collection doesn’t launch until May 26th the boutique gave me a first look at some of the colorful key pieces and I’m sharing that first look with YOU!
For this year’s capsule collection, COACH gave their signature C-logo a rainbow overhaul on everything from sneakers to slides, belt bags, totes and tees.
