It’s a season “With Friends” as Coach launches its fall 2021 campaign. The fashion house welcomes back their family in stars Michael B. Jordan and Jeremy Lin. Working with stylist Olivier Rizzo, Renell Medrano photographs Jordan and Lin surrounded by friends and community.
Coach creative director Stuart Vevers explains the inspiration behind the season: “The fall collection is inspired by our present and our future––by what we’ve learned and where we are going.” The designer continues, “It’s a story about friendship and the way our loved ones inspire, support, and shape us, and the excitement we feel about spending time together again. Comforting, nostalgic, and tactile, it celebrates the sense of possibility and joy found in connection.”

Lin encompasses Coach’s spirit of togetherness as he spends time with his college friends, Kheaton Scott and Nathan Liu. They pose for a picture with students from Dream It Real; “Coach’s initiative focused on helping break cycles of inequality by empowering the next generation to reach their full potential through higher education.”
Tapping into the season’s theme, Jordan explains, “The idea of being amongst friends means being around people you’re comfortable with.” The 34-year-old actor adds, “People you can be yourself with, grow with, be creative with. It’s about being in an environment that makes you comfortable, where you can be authentic and thrive.”
