The recent capsule collection release from Coach, in addition to my ongoing research for FAAR, inspired me to do a bit of digging back through recent fashion collections that take inspiration from space and space travel. Here I share one of my favorites of all time, from the Valentino design team of Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli, (since 2016, solely headed by Piccoli).

"inspired by American dreamers"

Introducing a limited-edition space collection inspired by American dreamers. The Varsity jacket is an iconic Coach silhouette customized with NASA-inspired patches, amidst metallic accents and a Rexy charm at the pocket. It’s made of wool with leather sleeves and signature striped ribbed trim.

The motifs, which are the real force behind the collection of simple, elegant silhouettes, were designed by British textile designer Celia Birtwell, as well as the Italian Pop Artist Giosetta Fioroni.
