Coach collaborates with celebrated graffiti artists Mikhail Sokovikov and Jason Aaron Wall of Mint + Serf in this special collection that captures the raw, dynamic energy of New York City. A modern design with a heritage feel, our Carriage Backpack is a timeless style loaded with functionality. The spacious style is crafted of natural pebble leather detailed with a bold motif from the rebel artists’ compositions. Secured by a drawstring closure and dogleash clip, it features a convenient front pocket with a protective hood so everything stays in place, two fabric-lined side slip pockets perfect for a water bottle or umbrella, a tech sleeve with space for a 16” laptop and an exterior zipper that gives easy access to the main compartment.
About the Creatives: Artists Mikhail Sokovikov (aka, Mint) and Jason Aaron Wall (aka, Serf) met as teenagers in Bensonhurst, Brooklyn, and started using the streets of New York as their canvas. Believing that the beauty of graffiti lies in its illicit aggressiveness and nonconformity, they produce impromptu dynamic compositions that channel the inherent tension and defiant grit of the artform—and the city they call home.
The capsule collection features paintings from Mint + Serf's seminal series, Support, Therapy and Instability (2012-2016) created at The Broadway Chapter in collaboration with Christopher Johnson, Pablo Power, and the PPP!
