Coach confirmed today that Selena Gomez will be the face of the brand’s Fall 2017 advertising campaign. In the announcement Coach stated, “The multi-talented singer, actress, producer and philanthropist captures the all-American optimism of Coach in a series of images set in New York City.”
Portrayed as the Coach girl about to embark on a road trip, Gomez lounges in the blush-toned-leather interior of a 1976 Plymouth Fury—the vintage car, a recurring reference in Coach campaigns, symbolizes the freedom and endless possibility of the open road. To bring this vision to life, Coach worked with the a team of fashion collaborators with images by Steven Meisel, styling by Karl Templer, creative direction by Fabien Baron, makeup by Pat McGrath and hair by Guido Palau.
“From the very beginning, the creation of Coach campaigns have been an exciting and collaborative effort,” comments renowned photographer Steven Meisel. “It’s been a pleasure working with Stuart and the team of incredibly talented individuals behind the brand. Inviting Selena Gomez to join the Coach family takes it to another level.”
“Selena is a rebel and a romantic, a dreamer and a doer who boldly charts her own course,” says Creative Director Stuart Vevers. “To me, she speaks to a generation; she connects.”
“I couldn’t be more proud to be the face of Coach,” says Gomez. “I’ve also loved working with Stuart, I admire his vision and his designs.”
Coinciding with the launch of the fall collection, Coach will reveal three short films dedicated to the key bags of the season: the Rogue, the Coach Swagger and the Edie. Created by Baron & Baron, each video stars Gomez getting ready in a New York City apartment for a night on the town.
Selena Gomez recently released her “Bad Liar” short-video, and will voice the character of Mavis in “Hotel Transylvania 3” in 2018. Gomez recently starred in “Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising” back in 2016, alongside Seth Rogen, Rose Byrne, and Zac Efron .
