Coach Launches Disney x Keith Haring Collection
Coach is launching a collection with Disney and Keith Haring.

The limited-edition collaboration reflects and celebrates Pop Art.
“Sometimes the best design comes from the most unlikely juxtapositions, and I can’t think of a cultural clash that brings me more joy than Mickey Mouse and Keith Haring,” said Stuart Vevers, the Creative Director of Coach. “Ahead of its time when it was first made, this art feels so timely today as we can celebrate and appreciate the diverse work of great creators whoever they may be, without social boundaries. As my collections over the years have shown, I love Disney, and I love Keith Haring, so this collaboration makes for my ultimate treat.” Coach launched a Jean-Michel Basquiat collection in 2020, following on with the series of influential modern artists.
