Hugo Guinness for Coach Wallets

Coach is the latest handbag label to team up with an artist for a new accessories line. The American fashion house has worked with Hugo Guinness for its latest limited edition range.

The London-born New York artist has lent his bold black sketches to 17 different accessories including leather wallets, reversible tote bags, key chains and even a set of playing cards. They're from all from Coach's men's line, but I can imagine several pieces, including the wallets pictured, finding a place in the closets of many art-loving women.

Guinness said he was intrigued by the prospect of presenting his art in a brand new format.

"My artwork is usually framed in glass and placed on a wall, the idea of my block prints on totes, accessories — even playing cards — was really interesting to me," he explained. "Coach understood and appreciated the simplicity of my art. When they asked me to create block prints that symbolized the Coach brand, I was intrigued. Coach is a New York institution, so I created what I see every day on the streets of the city — coffee cups, keys, sunglasses, handcuffs."

The Hugo Guinness for Coach line features items at a range of price points, from $68 for the cheapest right up to $398. Look for them next February at the label's website and selected Coach boutiques in North America, Hong Kong, China, Japan, Singapore, Ireland, France, and London.
