Coach is getting a streetwear upgrade.
The luxury label has joined forces with Bape to deliver a collaborative collection of leather goods, accessories and more. Through limited-edition patterns and blended logos, the capsule meshes together Coach’s signature craftsmanship with Bape’s raw aesthetic. Included in the collection are two footwear styles: the Bapesta and the Pool Slide.

As for the Pool Slide, the silhouette features blue uppers with Coach and Bape co-branding like the sneaker. The slide will retail for $125. The collection will launch on July 24 at Coach.com.
To celebrate the collab, Coach also released a campaign starring everyone’s favorite hot girl: Megan Thee Stallion.

This wouldn’t be the first time Megan posed for the Coach. The rapper previously starred in a different campaign and was named face of the brand earlier this year.
In addition to Megan, the campaign also stars rapper Cordae and model Kōki. The campaign also features “conversations with the cast to spotlight the creativity that is found in collaboration and how they express their unique attitude in the collection,” Coach shared in a press release.
