MICHAEL B. JORDAN AND COACH SHARED IMAGES FROM THEIR S/S19 CAMPAIGN
JANUARY 3
Coach has proven to have the knack of picking just the right celebrity to be its ambassadors. First, Selena Gomez who, health and relationship issues notwithstanding (plus her questionable musical talent), continues to be one of the most followed personalities online, and now, Hollywood’s golden guy Michael B. Jordan. Middle of last week, the Creed and Black Panther star shared on his Instagram page one of the images for his Coach campaign, which was shot by photographer Craig McDean:

The gig is a big deal, as MBJ is the label’s first global ambassador for its menswear line; he is also said to be the face of Coach’s upcoming men’s fragrance collection.

The spring/summer 2019 campaign features some of Coach’s iconic pieces reimagined, as well as the season’s hero bags (a.k.a. totes for men).

The Yung-96 comes with additional neon details on a red and white base, while the Superstar keeps it minimal with its gold branding.
