For Spring 2018, all-American heritage brand Coach has paired up with the foundation to create a special-edition collection combining Keith Haring’s beautifully preserved illustrations with their own signature craftsmanship.
“I am interested in making art to be experienced and explored by as many individuals as possible… the viewer creates the reality, the meaning, the conception of the piece,” said Haring.
More so than ever Keith Haring is famed for pioneering his pop art graffiti-like work across New York City. A significant tool in the ’80s uprising of art as an outlet for rebellion in the States, Haring used his iconic styles to make political and social statements throughout the city to create and activate change. An activist of this kind right up until his death in the late ’90s, Haring’s inspiring work has since become ever-more recognizable the world over for its bold, simplistic yet unique style of story-telling. Fast-forward to 2018 and the artist’s legacy is upheld by the Keith Haring Foundation, an organisation set up by the artist in 1989 and transformed in to a group which perpetuates Keith’s artistic and philanthropic legacy through the continued preservation and circulation of his artwork and archives.
From the infamous ‘Dancing Dog’ on handy tote bags, to a sequined beating heart on a camera bag in the most adorable shade of baby blue, to glittery vintage inspired shoulder bags with embellishments to die for, COACH x Keith Haring Spring 2018 collection is the go-to feel good accessories investment for the Summer.
