Passion For Fashion And Work: The Coach Archivist By The Selby

  • Pin it

This is slowly turning into a tradition here! Having our dearest friends share goodies for further fashion enjoyment. The latest in the sharing the fashion joy series is a short film (again) signed by The Selby for Coach: The Archivist.

The protagonist of this short film is Jed Winokur who takes care of more than 20,000 Coach leather goods dating from the beginning of the label, in 1941. He’s calling himself ‘the Archivist’. Curating an ever – growing catalog of products, Jed is constantly surrounded by creativity and inspiration throughout history taught lessons. Just hit the jump to watch the actual short film!

So many careful details my mind registered during Selby’s 3:50 film, I could fill pages with them! Inspiring bits and pieces that would fill my creative reservoir for days! The idea alone that Jed is collecting sticks & stones and whatnots from everyday beach walks? It just so happens that we have a very similar passion in the Frizz household, collecting tiny stones or leaves, little cones or flowers seeds from our travels and storing them, with the appropriate label, for memory purposes.

The care and the attention Jed puts into his ‘Archivist’ work are remarkable and ever so admirable, the way he finds inspiration in the little details, surrounding himself constantly with art and fashion are notable life and work principles we can always look up to. Again – many thanks (thank you, Ellington!) for sharing this short film!

I love this film because it combines three things I love and enjoy, fashion, collecting and curating (which I am trained for).
It is a nice film and I am glad that you liked it Kpriss. : )

Yes, absolutely! I love seeing how people cultivate their passions! It’s therapeutic and very didactic!

Great film, bring them on Ellington! :)

It’s something we all can do if we set our hearts on it…..
It doesn’t has to be as perfect but with love, passion and patience something small can as be satisfying.
I really enjoyed watching this. Loved the end :)
