The entire web seems to be buzzing with news of Fashion's Night Out and all the special events that took place that evening. One such occasion in NYC that somehow managed to combine my love of fashion, illustration, and graffiti was hosted by Coach. Keiko Lynn (and other bloggers) were invited to attend and received tote bags customized by either streetartist Pesu or illustrator Kiersten Essenpreis.
Kiersten's illustrations are whimsical with a delicate touch and often seem to play with a dark sense of humor.
Pesu's graffiti is colorful and bold; often bringing nature to the New York city streets and subtly referencing his Japanese roots.
Both Pesu and Kiersten created live art on Fashion's Night Out, customizing totes before the admiring eyes of those who attended the Coach event. With this eclectic pairing (and reaching out to fashion bloggers) Coach is definitely breathing new life into the historic house. It is exactly these sorts of pairings that make me so excited about fashion.
