Coach has tapped London graffiti legend Oker for a series of bespoke items to be raffled off to five lucky Highsnobiety readers. The giveaway follows on from a graffiti-centered activation that saw Oker spray a series of shutter fronts throughout London including those of the leather good’s flagship store on Regent Street.
Hailing from London, Oker is credited with helping to pioneer the British capital’s graffiti scene in the ‘80s and, later, bringing New York’s two-letter tagging style to the UK. He claims to have started graffiti as a form of self-medication during his troubled years as a teenager and, 30 years on from painting his first train, his cartoon-like throw ups have become central to London’s urban landscape.
For the activation, Coach invited Oker to customize five leather garments and accessories from the brand’s current Signature collection. These include a black leather jacket, a backpack, a wallet, a card holder, and a shopper in Coach’s Signature print.
