Our brands

Kriti Sanon is a star on the rise. Ever since she proved her acting chops in the 2017 ‘Bareilly ki Barfi’, the actor has been steadily making her mark with each role. And her sartorial choices aren’t far behind. Merging street style with premium labels, she has quickly become a major fashion influencer. This season, Sanon even attended the Coach SS 2020 fashion show in New York City.

Wearing a blue asymmetrical Kaffe Fassett print dress, a Stagecraft leather jacket, lace-up chain boots, and a Cassie crossbody camera bag, Sanon had the opportunity to browse through the all-new Coach Originals collection, which has a 78-year-old legacy in authentic leather craftsmanship. We caught up with the star to learn what she loves about the brand, her fashion choices and tips, and what she calls effortless style.

Could you tell us a little about your Coach collaboration. How did it come about?

I love Coach and this association just came together. Right for my style, it was truly incredible to associate with the vintage brand and attend a global event filled with the fashion stalwarts of the industry.

What can one expect at the Coach pop-up store?

Coach has various specialties. It allows one to shop from their unique collection of vintage and new archive-inspired bags. They also have incredible services – Coach Rented is the first-ever rental programme for bags; Coach Care is their on-site restoration and cleaning service; and Coach Create is a personalised experience that allows one to customise bags using initials and monograms. I loved customising my bag. 

What are some of the Coach classics that are a part of your wardrobe?

I recently bought a Coach Tabby shoulder bag that I carried to the SS 2020 show. It has solid structure with interesting hardware.

What are some of the hot under-the-radar trends you are currently crushing on?

I follow trends for sure, but my style has always been to opt for something that suits my frame and personal essence. Comfort clothing is one trend I follow.

As a jet-setting actor, what do you wear while travelling?

It’s important to carry a good travel bag for all your little essentials. My Coach tabby bag is my go-to. Size matters as well – not too big or too small. I pair it with a classic white shirt, a bomber jacket, and a pair of jeans.

What does your beauty regime comprise of?

I’m a simple person, so it’s all super basic. Moisturisers and oil-free facewash are my go-to items. It is also crucial to remove makeup before going to sleep and I never leave my house without a sunscreen, moisturising balm, and my favourite perfume.

Who has given you the best style advice lately?

My stylist Sukriti. She is fabulous and the best in the industry. Together we create super fun looks that suit my personality.
