What happens when designer Coach bags meet the designs of pop art icon Keith Haring? Some show-stoppingly chic handbags, it turns out. And even though some of these Keith Haring X Coach handbags seem like they might cost as much as a Keith Haring original — they don’t.
Even so, I’m going to have to settle for admiring them from afar. Unless…you know, Mother’s Day gift?
So just in case, I’ve gone through the new Coach X Keith Haring collection and picked out a few favorites I love.

Some of us wear out hearts on our handbags, and for us, there’s this Coach X Keith Haring market tote in a gorgeous ice blue pebbled leather that makes it perfect for spring and summer. Swoon. The sequins in the heart are a nice touch, making this bag sure to to summon compliments everywhere it goes — which, judging by its roomy interior, will be everywhere.
For a more minimalist version of the heart motif, The Coach X Keith Haring Heart Camera Bag comes in a very wearable, compact, 8.25″ x 6.25″ profile. And obviously, it’s not just for cameras — that phone, a lipstick, and a credit card and keys should fit in there just perfectly.

Dogs and UFOs were an ongoing motif throughout Haring’s early 80’s work, because, of course! If you want something a little edgier that true haring fans will recognize in an instant, this cool Coach X Keith Haring Dog and UFO Market Tote may be right up your alley. In fact, that fun interior fabric alone is just amazing.
I love that small handbags like clutches or cool crossbody smartphone bags are totally in for 2018. Which means you pretty much can’t get more on-point than this compact Coach X Keith Haring camera handbag that doesn’t feature a camera — but instead channels the 80s in all of its boombox glory. If you’re not a pink kind of gal, it also comes in a stunning bright blue.
If you want to spend a little less but love the design, also check out the Coach X Keith Haring boombox leather card case which will impress every time you flash your business card. Even if you’re not in A&R.

People don’t always associate Keith Haring with pastels or florals, but his later work, around 1990 started to evolve in that direction. It comes to life in this print which blends a classic Coach floral print with Haring’s iconic line art illustrations. For a really affordable little treat, you can nab the print in this Coach X Keith Haring Wristlet for just $65 and instantly brighten up any outfit with this compact, colorful bag. It even fits an iPad mini, meaning you could pop it into a tote or briefcase for travel, or Starbucks work sessions.
Spend a little more, and you can also get this pattern in a fairly affordable 14″ Coach X Keith Haring tote. Nice!
If you’re a classic Coach fan from way back, the Coach X Keith Haring Signature Kisslock Patchwork Crossbody Handbag is really interesting. It starts with a vintage Coach 5th Avenue sensibility then edges it up with Haring motifs, charms, patches, and hanging crystals. While this one may not be fore everyone — I am so here for it. And by here for it, I mean longing for it with my nose pressed against the virtual window (AKA my laptop screen) because this $495 beauty isn’t even close to my current accessory budget.
But hey, if you can afford it and you’re the type who likes to shop Barney’s while listening to Junior Vasquez on your AirPods, you may have just found your dream bag.
