Coach x Advanced Style: Generations of Style

When Coach approached me about working with them on a digital project, I immediately thought about how their classic bags have such a broad customer base. I have always been interested in the intersection between the fashion choices of the young and old and noticed that young girls often seem to take sartorial inspiration, whether conscious or not, from older women. With these thoughts in mind, Lina and I worked together to create a series of inter-generational conversations between the Advanced Style ladies and some of our favorite bloggers. Check out the videos above featuring: Susie Lau and Ilona Royce Smithkin, Nadia Sarwar and Linda Rodin, and Leandra Medine and Lynn Dell for some ageless style wisdom.

    These are great. Your work is better all the time!

  • Wonderful to see these videos thank you Ari, the ladies are so vibrant and full of life and good advice to those lovely young women. What a pleasure it is to see your post come into my inbox each day, its one of the first things I read for the shear joy and inspiration it gives me to start the day!

  • This is just amazing! 🙂

  • The videos are amazing. I felt that Leandra was the one who could really get closer to the ladies cause she is a New Yorker and has this timeless approach to fashion.

    Happy Passover 🙂

  • Thanks for this Ari (and Ari's team). Beautifully done, and what inspiration for those of us who are not 20, nor 70, to see what we have to look forward to!
