Stuart Vevers is picking up speed in his second season as creative director for Coach. The brand showed its spring/summer 2015 offerings today in a series of runway shows, relinquishing any memories of logo bags—or Reed Krakoff minimalism—in favor of a wild trip through color, texture, and time.

Down the roadside photo-printed catwalk came hairy pastel jackets, metallic mini skirts, and monster-y roadkill creature graphics by Gary Baseman, bringing to mind a grungey Sky Ferreira mixed with Cher Horowitz and topped with Twiggy bangs, trying to hitch a ride down an abandoned stretch of interstate.

While the fashion industry may bite, will the registers ring for flatform slide sandals, low-heeled clogs, or leather "fireman" coats?
