Louis Vuitton may have pioneered the idea, but now handbags designers collaborating with high-profile artists is all the rage. Everyone from Dior to Coach has given it a shot, and in the case of Coach, it seems as though the company has judged such collaborations to be a roaring success. Fresh off of a much-loved menswear teamup with Hugo Guinness, the American handbag company has tapped New York artist James Nares to lend his prints to a collection of totes that will debut a week from today.

Coach x James Nares will feature the artist’s signature waves, which he paints on huge canvasses while hanging from a harness above them. Coach has translated those pieces into a set of six tote bags, each of which will be made in limited editions of 175. The leather-trimmed canvas totes will retail for $798 when they hit Coach stores and Coach.com on April 20. Check with your local store to see if they’ll be receiving pieces from the collection, or better yet, sign up for notification of the bags’ arrival at Coach.com. More images of the collection after the jump.

    I think they are pretty , but I wouldn’t spend $800 on them. Btw  Amanda, what do you think would be an appropriate designer for a 14 year old girl, I love your website and all the bags and it inspired me to start having my own handbag collection but I don’t know which brand to start with. Could you help, pretty plz?

    Pretty. I like the red one.

  • FashionableLena

    Like the hot pink and the black.  But $800 is too much for a canvas bag even if it is a limited edition.

  • Amy Beth

    These are beautiful, but $800 for (white) canvas?  No thanks.

  • A Reader

    I read about these in The New York Times last week. They’re pretty, but the price is just plain silly. Pass.
