Coach has introduced a new collection with American pop artist, Tom Wesselmann. Inspired by a playful, optimistic spirit that Coach and Wesselmann share, the collection introduces Wesselmann's quintessential artworks on Coach items such as its Rogue and Duffle bags and shearling jackets, celebrating the house and the artist's shared legacies of American heritage and pop culture. The collection features the artist's colorful graphic motifs – including lips, flowers and still life artwork –embellished onto Coach's signature jacquard and heritage glove tanned leather with printing, embroidery and sequins. To create the collection, Stuart Vevers, creative director, Coach, worked closely with the artist's family and estate.
"Like my collections for Coach, Tom Wesselmann's work is inspired by the extraordinary found in the everyday and the universal references that bring us together," says Vevers. "Sensory and joyful, our collaboration is a tribute to the sense of pleasure Tom found in the process of creating. I'm very honored to have worked with his family to bring it to life, and proud to share his work with a new generation."
The Coach x Tom Wesselmann collection will be available to shop at pop-ups and store takeovers globally.
