Coach celebrates and honors renowned New York City artist Jean-Michel Basquiat with a special collection featuring elements from his revolutionary works of art. Inspired by non-stop energy and pulsing heartbeat of New York City, our Beat is made for life on-the-go. With interchangeable straps for versatile styling, the compact Shoulder Bag 18 has three compartments and multifunction pockets for easy organization. Crafted of natural pebble leather and glovetanned leather, it’s finished with a bold motif from the iconic artist’s rebellious paintings.
About the artist: Jean-Michel Basquiat is widely considered one of the most important artists of the 20th century. Known for his raw Neo-Expressionist pieces, Basquiat gained international acclaim in the late ‘70s and ‘80s for creating works of art that were both political and deeply personal. Featuring colorful abstract imagery and phrases inspired by African, Aztec, and Greek cultures, African American history and topics related to social justice, his pieces reflect the political and social turmoil of his generation that continues to this day.
