Disney Mickey Mouse X Keith Haring Academy Backpack 15

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. Academy is designed for adventures far and near. A compact version of our bestselling backpack, the streamlined 15 is crafted of our glovetanned leather printed with the famed American artist’s original artwork depicting a UFO encounter. With room for a phone, wallet, keys and more, wear the sling pack slung on the shoulder or crossbody with the adjustable strap. 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.”
