Admittedly, we weren't sure what to think when WWD released the first images from Coach's fall 2014 collection, the debut offerings from creative director Stuart Vevers. To back up a bit, the brand had just released an impressively chic-minimal collection as Reed Krakoff headed out the door, then Vevers dropped this punky-hip-hop-cool-girl bomb. We're talking red and black houndstooth coats, shearling-lined sneaker boots, messenger bags with whipstich detailing—a real puzzler.

In person, it all comes together—or we thought so, at least. After the jump, have a look at the collection up close and personal and let us know in the comments what you think of Vevers' Coach.
