Exclusive: Coach to Show Pre-Fall in Shanghai

Coach is taking its pre-fall show on the road — all the way to China for the first time.
The brand today will reveal that it will hold a runway show — titled “Coach Lights Up Shanghai” — and after party on The Bund, the city’s popular waterfront.
The event will be held on Dec. 8 and is intended to commemorate the brand’s 15th anniversary in China.
The collection will feature specially designed accessories, ready-to-wear and sneakers created by Coach creative director Stuart Vevers in collaboration with important Chinese cultural figures.
“We selected Shanghai as the venue for our first dual-gender runway show outside of New York City in recognition of the important relationship with have with Chinese consumers,” said Joshua Schulman, chief executive officer and president of Coach. “As we celebrate 15 years in the market, we look forward to building an even closer connection between Coach and our fans in China.”
Vevers said staging the pre-fall show in Shanghai “is a big moment for Coach and for me personally. Shanghai is one of the most vibrant, youthful and contemporary cities I have ever visited. It has a distinct energy that is inspiring and exciting — just like New York. I’m most looking forward to taking the spirit of the new Coach and the attitude and energy of New York to

Coach Getting Immersive in New Interactive Pop-up

Coach is taking a page from the book of the Dream Machine, a successful immersive, interactive — and eminently Instagrammable — experience that just wrapped up a two-month run in Brooklyn.
Offering its own distinct take on the idea, Coach will take over a space in SoHo from June 12-17 for Life Coach, an interactive pop-up that it boasts: “will heighten your senses, stimulate your soul and wake up all the feels. Here, you’ll find games, fortunes and other thrills for your third eye.”
The location at 107 Grand Street was inspired by New York, where the brand was founded in 1941 and includes references to American culture and Coach. There will be a neon storefront filled with psychic symbols and Coach design codes. Visitors will then enter a room transformed into a subway station, where they can write on blank walls before continuing on to a fairground scene, complete with carnival games. The third and final room is intended to be a dark forest where they’ll receive visions of their future.
Visitors can book appointments in advance, but walk-ups are also welcome.

A promotional flyer for the pop-up.

Coach 1941 Pre-Fall 2018

“A gothic, romantic fairy-tale,” Stuart Vevers said during the walk-through of his women’s and men’s pre-fall collections for Coach. He aimed to design what he referred to as a “specific moment” — a stand-alone capsule for the season rather than a transitional fashion message. References included American rock ‘n’ roll royalty, a blend of Stevie Nicks’ romantic spirit and Axl Rose’s swagger, plus the darker side of Disney’s “Snow White.”
The juxtaposition of cartoon references, like the seven dwarves or poison apple, with Americana accents — whipstitching, floral embroideries and eyelets — made for an exciting assortment. Literal interpretations took many forms, like a knitted sweater with a spooky “house in the woods” motif, or “Sleepy” and “Bashful” embroidered leather bags. Standouts included a delicate yet edgy black lace and floral printed handkerchief dress as well as a sleek, tailored black band jacket.
The sensibility was the same for men’s wear, which had a distinct streetwear edge. Hoodies, short-sleeve sweatshirts, backpacks and skateboards came embellished with ghost eyes and the occasional evil squirrel graphic, reflecting the designer’s sense of fun and cool.
These items mingled with Vevers’ trademark classics with a twist such as polos with a dinosaur crest, varsity jackets with Western

Diddy Arrested For Serving UCLA Football Coach The Angry Parent Fade

Diddy and his infamous temper have struck again, bad boys and girls.

As you all know, the son of Hip-Hop’s richest attraction is a football player for UCLA and his dad wants to him thrive and flourish on the field.

Earlier today (June 22), a verbal disagreement between Puff and a UCLA football coach transpired and well, let’s just say, he treated him like Drake.

Via TMZ:

P. Diddy has been arrested for allegedly getting into a fight with a football coach at UCLA … where his son is on the team, TMZ Sports has learned.

We’re told Campus Police took the music mogul into custody early Monday afternoon. Diddy’s son, Justin Combs, is a defensive back on the team. We’re told the fight went down at the UCLA athletic facility.

One source says an assistant coach was screaming at Justin on the field. At some point later, we’re told Diddy confronted the coach in his office and grabbed him. Diddy was arrested for assault.

A source connected with Diddy tells TMZ Diddy himself initially wanted to call police, but the phone was taken out of his hands.
Diddy is still in custody at campus jail.

What’s the chances this will hurt Justin’s playing time next season?

And what’s good with those anger management classes?

Life Coach Zachary Koval Discusses Finding Personal Acceptance Through His Queerness

2015-02-25-ZachGaze.jpg
Portrait by Daniel Jack Lyons

I’ve been conducting this series of interviews for over a year, primarily focusing on queer artists, but I realized that artists aren’t the only people whose work may be influenced or inspired by their queer identity. So I decided to open up my interviews and start talking to people with all kinds of jobs. With this in mind, I contacted Zachary Koval. He’s a busy man: He’s a personal trainer and life coach, primarily helping people with coming out or switching to a plant-based diet. We sat down to chat on a cold New York afternoon.

Phillip M. Miner: How long have you been out?

Zachary Koval: I came out to my parents in the eighth grade. After that it was a gradual process, from slowly telling friends to kissing a boy in the cafeteria my junior year. Both of my parents were very supportive. Personally becoming OK with my sexuality and not caring what other people thought was the biggest challenge. When I came out to my parents, I told them that I never wanted to talk about it again. I told friends and then ended up recanting the next day and jumping back in the closet. I think there’s a perception that coming out is a onetime event, but it’s definitely a continuum and process.

PM: Through some online research (aka Instagram stalking) I learned that you’re involved with the radical faeries. How did that influence your coming-out process?

ZK: I learned about the radical faeries from a high-school friend who connected with them after we graduated. They were something that really intrigued me — the freedom of expression, the connection to the spirit, the Earth, and to generations beyond my own. Exploring those things also completely terrified me. At that time, all that expression and sexuality wasn’t something I was comfortable with, but I still was attracted to the alternative way of being, outside the ever-present bar scene. It wasn’t until I moved to New York and met some friends who invited me to a large gathering in Tennessee for May Day that I finally got courage enough to go. Ever since, it’s been an amazing experience of learning about — and creating — myself. I’m seeing where I am and where I’m comfortable pushing past and growing. It’s not about conforming to what the mainstream says I should be or what I think that guy over there wants me to be. It’s been about finding, creating, and defining myself from the inside.

PM: I understand that. I naïvely thought that after I came out, that would be that and everything would be sorted. It’s been over a decade now, and I’m still figuring stuff out.

ZK: It’s definitely an interesting realization that we’re not done yet and probably will never be, but that’s the fun of it, I think. I went to a gay social boxing club called Velvet Gloves here in the city and found myself automatically self-correcting my stance and movements. The voice in my head was saying, “You’re standing very gay right now,” even as I was standing in a room full of gay men! I didn’t even realize I still had that kind of deep internalized self-shame! I like to think I’m completely comfortable with being gay, but there are still these pieces that have yet to be reconciled.

2015-02-25-ZachSmile.jpg
Portrait by Daniel Jack Lyons

PM: Does this sort of reconciliation happen in your life coaching?

ZK: Definitely. What’s really important to me is helping my clients find integrity in their lives and work to integrate all the different pieces of themselves. I think we have so many parts of ourselves: who we are at work, who we are with friends, and who we are at home. For many, those can be completely different people. This separation is what most of us do to survive day to day, being gay and/or other; we are no exception. Sometimes the different sides of us separate more and more, and we lose the sense of who we are. What I do is support clients in starting to bring those pieces back together to create a whole person.

PM: How do you go about doing that?

ZK: Through reflection, awareness, and action. While I work with clients on specific projects, we focus just as much on what’s happening on the inside and who they’re being about it. Many people concentrate on doing something in order to be something, trying to fix something they think is wrong or broken within them. In coaching I come at it in the other direction. It’s about being first. By recognizing you are whole, the doing comes naturally.

PM: I think I get it, but can you give me an example of how you’ve done this for yourself?

ZK: I grew up with a body image of myself being entirely too skinny, so I was always going to the gym, trying to put on weight and put on muscle to fix what I saw as wrong with me, chasing the proverbial unattainable carrot always held out in front of me. It drove me on but also [kept] me unhappy and unfulfilled. As long as I believed myself broken, it didn’t matter how many reps at the gym I lifted; they’d never be enough. It wasn’t until I began to address my own thoughts around my self-worth that I began to see changes. I connected my physical fitness goals with my overall health, ethics, and values. I’ve seen my dad deal with some serious health problems, and I didn’t want to go through that myself. Being vegan and my fitness journey are both a part of that.

2015-02-25-ZachHairinFace.jpg
Portrait by Daniel Jack Lyons

PM: I know it’s important to you, so could you talk more about your veganism?

ZK: It connects to so many things that are bigger than myself: the environment and climate change, world hunger, and animal suffering. I very much see veganism as an exercise in my personal integrity, connecting and bringing my intentions, words, and actions into alignment. I want to set an example that you can be healthy, fit, and even thrive on a vegan diet. Our diets are often just another example of our dissociation. We are disconnected from where our food comes from and the violence involved in producing it. Being vegan is more than just the action and choice of not consuming animals. It is also a synthesis of personal values and beliefs, which lead to those actions. On the other side, eating meat is also a choice, and one that is backed also by a certain set of values and beliefs, a belief system and ideology called “carnism.” By recognizing this, we can see that it’s not just “the way things are.” We can also begin to examine our actions and make empowered choices and changes rather than just being at the effect of the existing paradigm.

PM: That is important, like how “straight” didn’t exist until we defined “gay.” Final question: You’re goal-driven, so what’s next?

ZK: I have my life coaching. I have my personal training. I have my vegan lifestyle, and my acting as well. I want to bring them all together. Like I’ve been saying, it’s all about integration. I’m interested in traveling and giving talks as well as creating a plant-based, vegan fitness center, complete with workshops, classes, coaching, and training. I’m also currently working on an ensemble theatrical piece and a one-man show — a lot of exciting things coming up!

Did Mom Coach Her Daughters To Lie About Abuse? (VIDEO)

Shelly adopted her two granddaughters when they were young children, because her daughter, Roxy, was deemed an unfit mother. Recently, the two girls, age 7 and 9, have claimed that Shelly’s live-in-boyfriend, Jason, touched them inappropriately. Shelly claims the allegations were investigated, and the social worker stated that the girls were told to lie and being coached.
