NYFW Fantasy Costuming: Sweaters from Coach for Gina on Brooklyn Nine-Nine

17 Sep

Coach is set to have a big 2016 as it is their 75th anniversary and this 2016 Spring/Summer collection is their first major runway show at New York Fashion Week. Coach is a brand I am particularly fond of* and the journey from bags to clothing has included some very fun pieces such as this much coveted rocket sweater. Keeping with this theme and the current TV Ate My Wardrobe sweater queen is Brooklyn Nine-Nine’s Gina (played by Chelsea Peretti) taking the crown from April Ludgate when Parks and Recreation ended. It is perhaps fitting that last year’s NYFW Coach picks were for April and my flashback sweater sweetheart Felicity Porter.

*The only Coach item I currently own is one of my favorite vintage store finds and it is a leather document holder from the 1960s which I use as an iPad case because it is the perfect size. Everything old is new again and all that.

Brief Intermission Announcement – The NYFW Fantasy Costuming pieces have been a bit light on the ground this year and I am very aware that today is the last day with London Fashion Week kicking off tomorrow. This has been due to other work commitments as I have been travelling at lot more than usual and I hope to get a few more of these done in the coming weeks as fall TV returns – End of Brief Intermission Announcement.

Back to Gina and the Coach runway show which includes a whole lot of floaty floral boho delights, leather minis, mosaic patterns and the all important knitwear.

Coach dinosaurIt might not be the creature Gina loves most (wolfies of course) but I can definitely see Gina wearing this T-Rex sweater and mosaic mini in whatever office her new job with Captain Holt takes her to on Brooklyn Nine-Nine.

CoachPurple zebra print, a classic Coach saddle bag and silver cut down cowboy boots is very Gina and as you will see in the gallery below there are several other sweaters which fit her signature style. Plus a tee/mini skirt winning combination and a couple of leather jackets which build on her previous garments of this kind. And the floral detail will definitely set her apart from Rosa as the other leather jacket wearer on this show.

Also keep an eye out for another Gina related treat in the coming weeks.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine returns for season 3 Sunday, September 27.

The Wish List: Gina’s Short Sleeve Denim Jacket

19 May

It was the Brooklyn Nine-Nine season 2 finale on Sunday, which means one last Gina costuming Wish List item. Gina is a TV Ate My Wardrobe favorite including her sweater queen status as well as her love for all things wolfie. And this was a really great finale pairing Gina up with Terry in a mission to keep Holt at the precinct, dealing with the big Jake/Amy romance, a very fun Diaz/Boyle story and a scene that made me all kinds of teary. TV is causing a lot of waterworks at the moment; end of season is an emotional time.

Gina’s outfit du jour is a play on the big denim trend this season as denim is everywhere (although I kind of feel like denim is always on trend). The item in question is the ‘Blondie’ short sleeve denim jacket by Genetic Los Angeles and in typical Gina fashion she puts her own spin on it by wearing it as a shirt rather than a jacket.

B99 2.23 GinaPairing it with a stripe skirt rather than going for the double denim approach as seen on the model is also a stronger statement and sometimes there is such a thing as too much denim (but not when Britney and Justin are doing it #NeverForget). I am partial to the stripe tee, because of course.
