Coach 1941 Photographed on a Cast of Californian Characters

The black and white editorial was shot by Ben Grieme and styled by Mathew Stevenson-Wright for Another Man’s latest issue

For Coach 1941 S/S19, the brand’s creative director Stuart Vevers looked to artist Georgia O’Keeffe’s New Mexican Ghost Ranch for inspiration. “As soon as I saw it, I knew I must have it,” said O’Keeffe, of the 21,000 acre expanse of rocky terrain, which would become her studio and home from the 1940s until her death in 1986. Subsequently, Vevers’ co-ed collection mirrored this part of America through chunky intarsia knits, bearing an image of the Santa Fe landscape at twilight, patchwork and fringed leather – appearing in jackets and trousers – and oversized windbreakers, evocative of camping out in the middle of an eerie dustbowl.

The collection was photographed for Another Man’s SS19 issue by Ben Grieme, who chose to capture the mood of the clothing through the use of stark black white imagery, setting the editorial against a sunbleached backdrop. Styling came courtesy of Matthew Stevenson-Wright, who brought Coach S/S19 to life on a cast of ten striking local characters, scouted by Shay Nielsen. Including models Marley Camacho, artist Miles Kneedler, twin brothers Hector and Jose Polio, and Axel Swan, each helped to re-interpret Vevers’ vision, in keeping with the issue’s theme: “a celebration of the world we live in, real and unreal...”
