Keith Haring x Coach is the Label’s Love Letter to New York
The latest fashion flirtation with the influential work of groundbreaking NY street artist and gay icon Keith Haring comes from Coach, who launch their latest campaign for the sequin and graphic heavy Spring 18 collection today. Inspired by the grit and romance of the city, the image series contrasts the intricate detailing and embellishments of the leather-centric line with soft color hues against the stark backdrop of the city.
“The further extension into ready-to- wear this season has been very much inspired by our Coach girl gang—the way that they wear, party and live in our clothes,” Coach’s creative director Stuart Vevers said in a statement. “I love that sort of undone, unprecious glamour and sensuality.”
The campaign has an all-star team behind it — noted fashion photographer Steven Meisel shot the series, while makeup extraordinaire Pat McGrath handled beauty and legendary art director Fabien Baron oversaw the creative direction. The result is a tender ode to the fashion capital and the artist who emerged from it. Take a look at some images below.
Keith Haring x Coach will be available at Coach and online in March.
