In a special collection, Coach collaborates with Disney and the Keith Haring Studio to celebrate the iconic artist's playfully subversive illustrations of the one and only Mickey Mouse. Inspired by kisslock closures on vintage coin purses, the Kisslock Frame bag is based on the "Cashin Carry" from 1969, a top-handle style designed by Coach's first lead designer, Bonnie Cashin. Crafted of our glovetanned leather, this structured silhouette features a looped top handle, dimensional Mickey Mouse ears, and the American artist's original artwork depicting a UFO encounter. It easily converts to a crossbody with a removable chain strap for hands-free wear.
About the artist: Artist Keith Haring (1958-1990) was inspired by the art of Walt Disney from an early age, learning to draw Disney's Mickey Mouse from a Disney "how-to-draw" book he found at his grandmother's house. Well into his teenage years Haring wanted to be a cartoonist, thinking he could work for Disney, though he ultimately went on to study fine art. Eventually, Haring's passion for both cartooning and the visual arts combined in what became his unique and widely recognized style. Mickey Mouse is a recurring figure in Haring's art, when asked why, he said Mickey is "ultimately a symbol of America more than anything else."
